No shuttle from airport. Property and rooms were clean, surprised by additional $25 “resort fee” glad I was only staying a night for my flight layover. Room had some sort of strong smell, I thought it smelled like rubbing alcohol my son said it smelled like water or wet animal.. would pick another place in future

The first impression happens upon check in and Lacy at the front desk made sure to make the best lasting impression. She handled every question, glitch and request with professionalism, friendliness and efficiency for our entire stay. She is a top notch employee and because of our experience (made exceptional by Lacy) we stayed at this property a second time in 2023. And overall good hotel, easy walk to the park, lots of amenities and great staff - highly recommend. And a big thank you to Lacy for making our stay a great one!
