I read a lot of negative reviews but they really cleaned up the place! Rooms were clean, quiet and comfortable. The facility was spotless. The proximity to the state parks really enhanced our experience. We had a blast!
Not worth the money

Stayed for a wedding and was told there was a two night min. No one else at the wedding had to stay 2 night and my room was disgustingly dirty. Room was not ready when we arrived because it was still "being cleaned" but there were dead bugs in the bathroom and a bloody bandaid on the night stand not to mention the gum in the carpet and dirt cakes walls. Have called several times and no one answers. Was impossible to speak to someone when we stayed because there were always 5+ people in line at reception. Emailed management and nothing. Terrible Burt pizza from the restaurant on site.its all one restaurant they just call it 3 different things. Inattentive staff, no service at all on my phone and the room phone didn't work. Overall worst experience. Im mad and want a refund.
security not a high priority

Good things first, furniture in good shape, beds nice and comfy (2 bedrooms) , large rooms, lots of space in kitchen cabinets, all the people working there are very nice and friendly. The bad things security sucks. Our keys only worked for 2 days. Had to go to front desk to get new ones and they did not ask for our I.D. when we told them the room number. Again 2 days later needed new keys and was not asked for I.D. ( this was a different lady ). Again 2 days later needed new keys. Cleaning on some things were ok. But not on all that should of been clean, old dirty coffee filter left in coffee pot. Counters had some sticky stuff on.
AWFUL. DIRTY. BUGS.

DISGUSTING. Stayed in room 134. Bugs (including a huge spider we had to kill, various bugs in the bathroom and a cricket chirping INSIDE our hotel room all night), visible dirt, unwashed coffee pot. A fridge that was so over frosted the door wouldn’t close- when we asked for a replacement they had the nerve to provide a fridge where the door came completely off when you touched it. We had reserved for 2 days, hopeful for a good experience despite the many negative reviews. We left early after just one night, and I can verify that you should trust the critical reviews- it is all accurate.
