2/5 Poor

Traveled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Amenities
Asian restaurant closed but staff misrepresents that it is open since they serve similar food in the only other restaurant on property. Spa facilities also closed. Hotel is short staffed and service is slow. Some staff is also new a not fully trained. Managers are not very forthcoming when you ask about service and facilities- they are trying to make a quick buck
