Accommodations Review:

Brand new -- opened after July 4th. They still have some bugs to work out being new but the mattresses were good.

We had a KidsSuite. King in the Master BR and Twin bunk Beds in the Kid's room. The sofa also folds out. Amenities included Microwave, Refrigerator& coffeemaker, Ironing Board w/Iron. There are 3 TV's in the room, w/VCR's and a Nintendo in the Kid's room. A/C is Central style, not in the window.

Good quality but definitely still figuring things out in the physical plant and the personnel areas. They haven't even got all the ice & vending machines installed yet. Maid service quality changed with the arrival of the weekend.  Not bad, but not the same as the initial day and Friday service.

They also use High Profile bed frames to allow you to stuff your bags under the Master bed.

Rate/Night (for your stay):

79+tax Thursday ( Great Rate) $ 55.20 + tax Fri/Sat/Sun (Holideal)

# of Restaurants/Lounges:

1 + fast food area (and 2 bars)

Restaurant/Lounge Review:

Breakfast is free and all you can eat buffet. Good quality -- I have paid for a lot worse.  Eggs are bland but lots of biscuits, waffles, cereal, French Toast, Bacon, Sausages, yogurt, oatmeal, grits, juices, milk.  The coffee left something to be desired but no one's perfect. Didn't visit the bars.

Amenities / Facilities / Activities Available:

Sundries Shop, Pool, Hot Tub, Playground, Hairdryer, Laundry, In-Room Safe, Babysitting/Kid Programs, Room Service, Handicapped Accessible Rooms, Non-Smoking Rooms, Smoke Detectors, Fire Sprinklers.

Pool Description/Comments:

Nice pool... walk in zero depth going to 5 ft.  Separate Olympic pool is not open yet.

Other Comments:

Only partially complete. They have a good idea, they just need to follow through. We would got back, but next trip is the Grand Floridian. This one was a quickie just to get away.
