Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Fantastic service. Very friendly and accommodating. Beautiful grounds and very well maintained Pros: very clean, great service, large resort with a casino, arcade, workout room, and cafe. Large grounds, complimentary waters in the rooms, nice showers, and thick walls. The people in the room next to us had a dog that barked incessantly, however we only heard it when walking up and down the halls. The walls between the rooms were super thick and we never heard it from our room. Convenient location directly off of the road. Large parking lot with plenty of space to park trailers, buses, or large vehicles, and lots of handicap spaces offered. We have a son that is gluten free and dairy free, and he was able to eat breakfast at the Iguana restaurant there and they had gluten free toast. So, some food allergy friendly items are available Cons: even though I called when I made the reservation and specifically asked if the pools were open and I also specifically asked if there were microwaves in the rooms and was told yes to both, they have no microwaves in the rooms and both pools were closed. Also, it’s a ways ‘out’ from the city which could be a pro or con depending on what you’re looking for. The restaurants in the building were not operating at full times, so be prepared to possibly drive elsewhere for food options if needed.
