The staff is always willing to help. They seem to be happy and busy trying to keep the place the best. A recommendation for the bathroom is to put something to hang the wet towels.

2/5 Poor

Travelled with family and small children
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities
Oh man-the pictures are drastically edited. We arrived after 13 hours of driving and I walked in the lobby and immediately thought “oh no.” It has its own unique smell that wasn’t clean. The man behind the counter that checked us in was very sweet but other than that, the place is just a dump. My son waited all day to swim and when we FINALLY saw the pool, there was literally a film covering it. As far as safety goes, my husband walked to get pizza and random people were just screaming and one was banging the hell out of a door-that was open! We booked the room for 2 nights but ended up leaving after one night. No way will we return.
