Positive Reviews

Walking To Paradise

Everything is within walking distance. If you want to grocery shop or stop at the casino, you can take a short stroll and enjoy yourself. The hotel is "youngish" so it may not be suitable for much older people; however, who says you're too old to have fun!

Yummy Breakfast

You can't beat the delicious breakfast the hotel provides. Oatmeal, granola, waffles, coffee, and more. There is plenty of nutrition and choices.

The Hotel Has The "It" Factor

The hotel is pretty cool and it's fun and creative. Everything from the location, to the personnel, the beer garden, fire pits, and more. It has a good vibe that exudes fun. It's not stuffy at all and you feel as if you can be yourself and be at home, even though you are a visitor.

Negative Reviews

No Is The Word

There is no air conditioning and even though the temperature drops during the night, the heat can still be intense. There is no elevator either. If you are staying on the higher floor you could work up a good sweat.

It's Party City

If you think you are visiting a quiet retreat, forget it! The walls are thin and it seems that most visitors are at the hotel to stay up until the wee hours partying and drinking. If you are visiting the area and looking for a place to have a shindig you will be fine. If you're looking to relax in quiet tranquility and enjoy the great outdoor, look elsewhere.

Images And The Reality

Pictures speak a thousand words but the words are not always true. For example, the hotel photos show brightly colored chairs on a balcony; however, the full picture will show those chairs are facing a parking lot! The place is a bit unsanitary as well. In addition, bad smells may hit you in the face too.
