Great Hotel

This was the first time we've stayed here on our way back from Florida since our normal hotel that we stay at has gone up dramatically in price. This is a very nice hotel. Big and nicely decorated room, attached to a casino (can be a plus or a negative), has several restaurants inside the complex, small inside pool and hot tub, and a very nice accomodating staff! My daughter left her phone and straightener in the room after we left, and they called us in about 2 hours after we checked out to inform us and arrange shipping of the items to us! This is incredible customer service! The ONLY negative is that the hotel parking lot is typically occupied by people going into the casino. The hotel should put up signs or gate off specific parking for the hotel only. I had to park a short distance away in the casino parking lot in order to get a space. I recommend this hotel!
