"I was put in 3 different rooms because the first 2 had bedbugs. Don't stay at this hotel.2016-09-15"
"The hotel was generally satisfactory. There were several small roaches and spiders in our room, and it was humid due to the large, indoor water park. Good room amenities, and the staff was friendly, attentive, and helpful. If you don't have children and aren't interested in the water park, shop around for another place to stay.2016-06-28"
