Very Good8 Reviews
2.95km from Great GrubbingArriving at the hotel, we used previously read reviews for reference; parking in the north lot as it bypasses the ****** to the front desk. They check temperature and masks are mandated. (Still buying the lie) Front desk was very helpful, nice and expedited our check in, offering an upgrade for a small amount which we took. The main ****** floor was not very busy. Station Cafe is open 24 hours but there is a Fat Burger, Baskin Robins, Pizza Place and Panda Express that will hold anyone over with above par tasting food. I never used room service as these places were so convenient with no lines. Rooms were quiet with the exception of someone beginning a light hammering at 9 am two of the four days. I brought earplugs.
Security is abundant around the facility; some in black suits and some armed. Security will follow you throughout your stay with video surveillance at every ceiling glance as it is probably a way of them passing the time; their reality TV.
The pools were nice but only a certain portion was open during the day 10am to 4pm off season. Gym was especially nice as it has a Smith Machine, free weights and a pull up bar. It is open 24 hours from the rear entrance only to patrons. Only negative drawback is that they mandate a mask. I was "reminded" to keep my mask over my nose as I had it down trying to catch my breath. I hope they are trained in CPR as they may have people pass out from oxygen deprivation. Hint to GVR, Southpoint, nor Silverado R mandate masks in their gyms. A second minor inconvenience is that you need to ask the attendant for a towel and a bottle of water as it is under lock and key.
Room amenities "toilet paper, tissues, towels" were not stocked well as we were only given one box of tissues, two large towels and one roll of TP. A nice gesture was a robe that was supplied. Only issue with this robe is that there was only one. If you wanted your room made, you needed a special request. Even then, no restocking of TP or tissues were supplied. Unsure if it was a mistake as more larger towels were replenished.
Overall, besides the mask Nazi at the gym, it was a very pleasant experience. We will be staying here often when visiting family in the future.
