10.0 Wonderful
Pros:The decor is so cool and the rooms were clean. I highly recommend this place if you want a nice hotel without the stuffy hotel feel. The breakfast was outstanding as well. I highly recommend this place for couples and families.
10.0 Wonderful
7.1 Good
Cons:The website and a call to the motel in advance both stated that a crib would be available for our one year old. We were less than pleased when we arrived to find that what they meant was not actually a crib, but a pack n play. In my book, these two things are NOT equivalent. My daughter is an awesome sleeper but not accustomed to sleeping in a pack n play. If I had been told this when I called ahead earlier in the week, I would have brought ours from home, which would have been more comfortable for her. Other than this, the room and facilities were perfectly adaquate. This was our first family vacation, so having her not want to sleep until she basically passed out at 11 each night was not great for us to be able to enjoy the following day.
6.5 Okay
Pros:Nice lobby friendly
Cons:Breakfast just ok. Hard to find
