REVIEWED: “Wonderful and pet friendly!!”

"as soon as I stepped into the lobby I was surprised! Andre was great and very helpful. he explained everything and showed me where everything was located. I was pleasantly surprised at the rooms and they were very clean and updated. their pool was nice and clean and the staff was busy keeping it that way. the beds were great too and they welcomed our puppy . cable was above average not just 12 crappy channels and the wifi worked. I never heard a peep from other people in the rooms near us so it was nice and quiet. I stayed alone the second night and felt safe with no worries."
