Nice visit

Lathrop, California

Came here to get away from the masses of people in my home city. Beach was like a ghost beach which I loved . We had a great stay and would have stayed another night or two if price cut would have been offered.

Bad beds slamming doors

Bad beds doors slamming all night. Sheets feel like sandpaper. Good view...... bathroom were ok clean. Room service was slow. Went to the bar/restaurant they complained about being under staffed. Took 10 min to get a drink. And nobody was in there but us. Staff at the restaurant all had crappie attitudes. The cost of 3 nights 1075 not worth the money.
