Very affordable, close to the shopping strip & attractions but a little more of a walk than I expected especially with small kids! I think our kids liked the pool more than they liked the actual vacation itself! I was happy to stay there though!
The pool wasn't very easy to access at all, our room we were given at check in had not been cleaned up from a prior maintenance job but the front desk took care of us right away and put us in another room. We ended up being by the creek which was really nice.
Simple, affordable stay on a creek
Ask for the creek side rooms with balconys! Hearing the creek from your room was great. Their indoor pool is what sells this place for me and my family. It's a fun pool, with waterfall and hot tub. You can't beat the value for the location and amenities.
It's not very fancy or new, but if you're not a fancy person then you'll love it.
Rate and location
There were roaches in room. Staff was nice but we won't stay there again.
After reading some reviews after booking our stay I was worried... we arrived & the staff was very friendly, rooms were clean, a/c worked great, ice machines worked. I found no merit to some concerns addressed in others reviews. Yes this is a older motel but not rundown & I would stay again. We were courtside (across the street) & it was very peaceful.
