Our room was exactly what we expected! We had a nice view of the pool. I have to give a shout out to Danny who helped us get the room we wanted. The staff at this hotel are super accommodating and the room was very clean. Having Applebee's attatched right to the hotel is an added bonus. We highly recommend this hotel!
