Pros: It was very comfortable and pleasing to the eye, with ample parking. We also liked the movie channels, we got to watch a lot of things we missed.
Cons: Maybe larger parking spots for people with bigger vehicles. Eggs and toast for breakfast as well. "Wood" floors throughout would be nice.
Location: Everything is in a 30 minute radius, which includes restaurants, banks, the mall, movie theaters, and the beach.
Pros: Close to Hwy, comfy bed, nice Jacuzzi, great channels on t.v., tall shower head, no smoking of any kind. Con: Stairs, if you have knee/ankle problems. DEPOSIT for room: If paid in cash or debit, $100 deposit. If paid in credit there is only a $50 deposit. I have this as a con, because the site did not inform me before making the reservation. They have a great location and it is really quiet, though the neighborhood needs to be built up a bit. Close to a lot of places to eat and have fun at. Parking spots are for smaller vehicles, so do not bring your BIG truck or SUV. It was perfect for me and my small car though. Breakfast includes coffee/juice/milk, muffins and the like, as well as cereal and fruits. The pool area is small and cozy, with plenty of towels to enjoy it. They have movie channels, which is a surprise because most hotels only have regular t.v. OVER ALL GREAT PLACE TO VISIT!!!

Excellent stay for the price

The area at the hotel is in is kind of questionable, but once you arrive on the property you do feel protected from the local environment. Even though part of the property was under construction the part we stayed in was very clean and new. I only wish that the hot tub was open till 10 PM instead of 9 PM. The staff and conditions of the property were excellent and I would recommend anyone to stay at this property .

Good rate but very shady neighborhood

The room was nice and newly remodeled. Half the hotel is accessible as the other half is under construction. The plumbing was awful. After we used our restroom sink and turned off the water, you can hear thumping on the walls from the water being on. We heard our neighbors brush their teeth and took a shower. Also, the neighborhood is really bad. Homeless everywhere with a lot of sketchy people hanging out outside. We quickly came in and out the entire time we were there. And the breakfast included was toast, pastries, Kroger cereal, coffee and orange juice which runs out fast but does get replenished eventually. I would only recommend this hotel if you were on a strict budget. It's close to the safari park and all the good breweries!
