Loved it
Loved the hotel and pool area. Very spacious room and loved the shower! This was the best stay that we have had in a very long time and this hotel would be a 1st choice if we are ever in the area again. It was like an apartment and very spacious!

4/10 Fair

Not good, not good at all!
Hotel room smelled to high hell, fridge had what appeared to be dried blood, the ac filter screens were completely plugged off, there was dog food all over the room. Asked for new sheets more than 3 times only to receive a day later. I would have left after the first night, but there were no other hotels available due to a state softball tournament and an industrial turn around at a local plant. Will not stay again and would not recommend to anyone.

Needs Updating
Hotel is worn and needs some updating and they need to clean their floors. Same debris on the floor in the hallways and on the steps for over 3 days. Internet was so slow too. Comfortable beds and staff was friendly.

Average stay at BW
The room was big for family gathering but we thought the air conditioner was either not working correctly ( it sounded like the fan was dragging) or it was just to small to handle the room. The towels never dried so that would explain the black mold along outside shower wall. The sheets felt very damp. It also could be th e fan in the bathroom wasn't working the best. Also it seem like we got the bare necessities in the room. We had to reuse the wet towels from the day before. Not much for hotel instuctions. Also phone kept blinking for messages and there was know very annoying when you are trying to sleep.

Room was comfortable, need more tables and chairs around the pool though as people were sitting around on the pool deck due to lack of seating.
