    Nice and clean, good work out room, and outside patio very comfortable. The staff was very nice. We will come back.

    The trash bins are outside behind our room. The trash man comes very early to move them and it sounds like they are in your room and wake you up. I suggest a 10 am or afternoon pu. The sink drain is very dirt needs cleaning.
