The security was great felt safe in our Cabana suite. However, we had electrical issues in our room, from flickering lights to the bathroom lights going out completely. When maintenance can't to fix the bathroom lights it was as though he tried to blame me saying "they probably went out because you used the blow dryer." Which I did not, we weren't even in the room when it happened just came back to a dark bathroom. Not to mention that they "could not find our reservations" and again made it seem like it was my fault for using Travelocity. Extremely disappointed and dissatisfied with the service and the room.

The room was okay I guess. I paid for a jr suite but it was basically the size of a standard room to me. The front desk supervisor, Melea, was not so friendly at all. Especially to the new clerk, which I think her name was Rebecca(?), Who only started about a week ago. She switched computers with Melea to help her out but Melea had an attitude stating "that computer is in my name and I don't tolerate mistakes". If that was the case, why even switch with her? Just help her do what she has to do and I'd wait, rather than make Rebecca feel like she's incompetent. The housekeeping supervisor wasn't too friendly either. I asked for a room refresh and she told me there wasnt a maid after 4pm, which I didn't know. I asked her for fresh towels and she told me it would be there shortly. An hour passes, and i call again. I'm polite and let her know my name and room number. She responds with "yeah yeah 6513 what do you need?" And I let her know I just want towels and she was just like fine I'll have them sent up and hangs up. It wasn't a very good experience here.

The shower/tub still had pubic hairs and used soap wrappers from the last tenants. Very dirty/dusty.
