Let me start off by saying we stayed at 3 different hotels on our trip and we had the BEST service at this one. We had a security guard named Alan who was AMAZING. He went above and beyond for us. He was SO friendly and attentive it was great. His jokes made our night! We felt so welcomed by him I can’t remember the last time I felt that way at a… Read more

He was SO friendly and attentive it was great. His jokes made our night! We felt so welcomed by him I can’t remember the last time I felt that way at a hotel. If we controlled the raises he’d get a huge one. We will be returning here JUST because Alan was the best encounter we’ve ever had while staying at a hotel. Give this man the best employee ever award because he rocks! We will back back for Alan! Read less

We will never stay at this motel again. Tried talking with Chris at the front desk, only to be treated very rudely. Read less

So we came down to grab an Xbox S series and decided to stay overnight to go to the parks. Booked her because we have stayed before and while cheap it wasn’t bad. Well, this was my last stay.

So we came down to grab an Xbox S series and decided to stay overnight to go to the parks. Booked her because we have stayed before and while cheap it wasn’t bad. Well, this was my last stay. First, they checked us into an occupied room. Pills, dirty clothes, belongings scattered everywhere. Not sanitary or acceptable at most times but during COVID? Then they moved us to a “VIP” room which had less slew space than the room we booked, so one of the kids had to sleep on the floor. That is all normal motel stuff that happens at these low to mid level roach motels. Now, the kids live for a good pool and the pool is nice- except after about 10 min I noticed vomit all over the ground around the pool deck and in the pool! I notified the bar tender and he said he would tell housekeeping and the front desk- I pulled the kids out and we were going to watch Tarzan on the screen, but no one came to clean up the vomit! I called the front desk and they were so whatever about it. It’s a pandemic, COVID causes stomach issues, and this “resort” let’s vomit sit openly for hours. I didn’t snap a pic because vomit is so gross. Disgusting. Read less

Went to our room and the door key didn't work, after research the battery in the machine needed to be replaced, and the handyman wouldn't be able to replace til morning. Once we got into the room, it looked dirty and run down and smelled of stale cigarette smoke. I started inspecting everything and it just wasn't clean. The bed sheets had stains on them, so I pulled them back to discover the mattress was even worse. We checked out 45 minutes after arriving there, and now I am having issues with them giving me a refund. Read less
