Everything was very clean. What I did like is how noisy it is. The walls & doors are so thing that you could hear footsteps when people walk by.

The store is limited on what it carries. The bar area is understaffed. The choice of kids meals at restaurant is fish sticks...that we waited an hour for. There was mold in the bathroom. The front desk recommended a driver to the airport who DID NOT show up. The list is long...

Access to attractions is easy. That’s the only positive for the overall property. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was stale and not at all what was expected for additional money for a suite. The pictures are deceptive and it’s overpriced for the size.
