  • Do NOT book your wedding here. You will regret it like we did. This place only cares about money. They do not care about you or your special day. They will truly say anything to get you to sign the contract and make deposits. After that they don’t care. We were shocked at how uncaring and unaccommodating they were with the global pandemic. It is sad that we had that much of a horrible experience with the owner and wedding sales woman, that we walked away from 5,000 dollars which is hard to do. There were also 19 other couples that appeared on the news in similar situations and no compromise made by hotel for any.
