Price is great, beds were clean and comfortable. People write horror stories about this place, but I had no real issues. Yes the place is in bad repair but it works and for the price, you could do a lot worse.

The jacuzzi tub in my room was full of hair and I had to rerun my bath just to clean it out. Paint chipped and pealing on the walls by tub. Kids being extremely loud in the pool area until 10:30p. They were also running around, up the stairs and on the second floor. Overall extremely noisy.
