Non-smoking rooms, handicap rooms, smoke detectors, fire sprinklers.

Other Comments:

Free buffet breakfast starting at 6:30; included coffee, juices, milk, eggs, omelets, waffles, bacon, sausage, Danishes, bagels, cold and hot cereals, etc.

In the evening, they serve complimentary drinks and snacks: soda pop, coffee, margaritas, beer, bottom shelf alcohol, also had popcorn.

They have a concierge desk n the lobby to help with/restaurants/directions/etc.

They have two entry doors, one at front, one on side. The one on the side is locked from outside after 10pm for security reasons. I really liked this feature.

I really cannot say one bad thing about our 2 night stay. It was well worth what we paid and more.  My kids loved it and want to go back. The Kids Club was great. My son who has asthma did well (meaning everything in room was very clean). He has numerous allergies to dust and mites, etc. The staff treated us wonderfully. Anytime I phoned for anything, they were there within 5-10 minutes; called once for more pillows and once for a burned out light bulb. Maintenance man was there approximately 3 minutes after I laid the phone down. They emphasize that if you are not 100% satisfied your stay is free. I bet they do not have too many free stays. I can't wait to go back.

Excellent off site resort to stay at.

Any more questions? Please email: Hope this helps!
