The Pool (which we never use) was 130 steps away. Hum??? Wife told me the story after we left town. Probably a good choice that she did wait. OH and I did not mention that there is a truck stop on the other side of the pine trees that are approximately 30 yards from our window.

1.0 Poor
Pros: The pool.
Cons: The staff was rude and unwelcoming. Our room got double booked so while I was in the middle of changing to my swimsuite another couple walked into our room and looked at us like we were suppose to leave. From there on out I never felt comfortable in my room. I felt like anyone could walk in. The man an the front desk said we would be reimbursed but the lady debbie was rude in the morning and didnt care we had a bad stay and refused to make it right. She didnt sympathize what happend to us at all. Basically said it wasn't a big deal. We tried to request early check in but once again debbie was rude on the phone, never one time asked me what room I had to see if it was ready. I just got a no my housekeepers are still here. Tired to request a late check out and the lady said we needed to call back at 8 to speak to a manager, only to be told we could stay a half hour longer. The entire hotel was a joke and I will never stay at one of these hotels again. I've never felt more unwelcomed, uncomfortable and astonished at a place. I've never stayed at a place where you couldn't get a late check out till at least noon. Everything that happened they made it seem like it was our fault. I don't reccomend this place to anyone. Very unprofessional and rude staff.

Pros: Staff was very friendly, and everything in working order. (To be expected, but unfortunately not always the case.) Breakfast was really good. There were a couple items that I was happy to see offered that I typically don’t - Greek yogurt and cottage cheese. Yum! Thank you for that! Staff kept the area clean, and stocked.
Cons: We could have used firmer pillows. :)

7.0 Good
Pros: Rooms were clean and it was easy to get to.

7.1 Good
Pros: Quick check in and check out
Cons: Powdered eggs suck. An employee told my wife that she needed to wear her shoes when she was at the breakfast area. Our room was 30 steps from the breakfast area. The Pool (which we never use) was 130 steps away. Hum??? Wife told me the story after we left town. Probably a good choice that she did wait. OH and I did not mention that there is a truck stop on the other side of the pine trees that are approximately 30 yards from our window. All night long, we listened to a refrigerated semi trailer run (idle). TELL PEOPLE THIS STUFF BEFORE THEY PAY OVER 100$/NIGHT TO TRY TO SLEEP AND MOVE ON WITH THEIR LIVES THE NEXT MORNING.
