Well, this place needs to be updated and staff needs to be friendly. While bed quality was nice, bedding seems to be old and crumpled. Front desk staff did not sound friendly. Nothing to do and nearness to road can be noisy for sensitive ears

Does your hotel have a grill available for guests to use?
We did not use the pool area but did walk through it. I did not see any type of grill in the area.
