    I stayed here around Thanksgiving of 2019 with my two kids.Half of this property is fenced off and under construction and has been since December of 2018. The pool seemed to be operational but was also fenced off and unusable. Upon arrival there was a plumber in the driveway discussing digging out the front driveway due to a storm drainage issue in the rear of the property that had flooded the rear parking lot with a ton of water from a recent rain. They ended up using a power sump pump to suck out all the water, but had to return the next day after it rained again. There was a bit of noise and activity due to this. The staff was friendly but was unable to offer any compensation for these things. The room itself was very basic. The room lacked a proper bathroom door, more so a set of double doors that was hard to close that led to the sink area which led to a "non doored" toilet and shower room. This lacked privacy since these doors were hard to shut and didn't have any locks. I didn't want to see my son pooping while I was brushing my teeth for instance. There are no microwaves or fridges in the room at all. The beds were very hard and supported by a thin mattress and solid piece of wood underneath. A step up from a jailhouse maybe but not much past that. The TV had a custom HDMI/VGA/RCA port accessible outlet but whoever installed the TV neglected to connect HDMI. So I had to winch my hand behind the TV to connect the HDMI. The WiFi was slow and unreliable.

    Very basic. No Kleenex, no shampoo, bed was not very comfortable, very noisy highway traffic, construction next door with workers arriving at 6:30 am . It was not worth the money even though it was near the beach.
