Griffen H.
Great bbq area w hammock and nice pool, rooms were adequate w comfy beds. Poor service, mean front desk attendants. Kicked everyone out of the pool at 9pm sharp with no prior warning, literally waited by the gate for us all to file out. Was rude at every interaction.

Always professional. Always quick with check in. Always clean. Simple and easy. Favorite place to stay and great pricing during the off season. Never have had a problem. Although I do miss the continental breakfast dining. The waffle maker was the best.
