Positive Reviews

Good family-friendly option

Certain features of this hotel hold plenty of appeal for families. First off, kids stay free with paying adults. There are also the free breakfast and that all-important complimentary Wi-Fi to consider, not to mention the expanded pool area, kid's movie nights, and proximity to family-friendly attractions.

Clean and comfortable rooms

There appear to be very few issues with the rooms, with most guests describing the rooms as clean and comfortable. The decor appears fresh and the beds are of a good standard. Plus, the Internet access is reliable and the maid service is good.

Friendly and helpful service

Guests comment favorably about the standard of service offered, describing the staff as offering a warm welcome and friendly on-going service. The staff also appear to offer any help needed by guests, as well as being knowledgeable about area attractions and dining options.

Negative Reviews

Lots of children

Although the family-friendly nature of this hotel was a blessing for many guests, it was something of a curse for guests who were traveling without younger companions. Given that the hotel is attractive to families, you should reasonably expect the pool to be crowded and there to be some noise to deal with.

Mixed opinion of breakfast

Reviews that refer to the hotel's free breakfast are a little mixed and it's fair to say that not everyone enjoyed this amenity. Most guests found the food was of an acceptable standard but mention there are fairly limited choices available. Plus, guests comment that staff is occasionally slow to restock items and the serving area can become too crowded.

Housekeeping schedules

A small number of guests found that the housekeeping team was late to attend to their room. Also, several guests mention that their room or suite wasn't ready upon arrival at the hotel.
