"IF PRICE IS THE ISSUE IT WAS ok. Still had quite a somke smell to it, towles were paper thin and no amenities like hair dryer, iron and ironing board. You could get these at the front desk but not convenient. Nice to be close to golf course and gettin a deal on the golf was great. People now expect these things as part of the stay."

"Actually I asked for a non-smoking room at the 1-800 # and got a smoking room. I was told that if I wanted a non-smoking room, I had to pay extra. Too me, I think smoker should pay more because the smoke does more damage than a non-smoker."
