Room was clean. Bathroom door didn’t lock. AC worked well. Indoor pool was full of drunk adults. Kids running everywhere. Adults had ice chest by the pool including glass. No security or hotel staff said anything to anyone. Hot tub full of kids. Won’t be back. Disappointed.

I liked the location and the rooms were nice. The staff seemed to totally ignore everyone while they were on the phone. Their customer service could use work.
