Ok Stay
Originally i was told our room was overbooked and we couldnt stay there. Then we were put in a room that had wet carpet and a smell of mold with black stuff all over the furniture and lamp shades. The rooms DESPERATELY need a facelift if you arent in the rooms right by the river. Even then, there was peeling paint and the ac barely worked. Staff was nice. You can rent boats/kayaks right from their adventure area. Youre definitely paying for location and not luxury.
