AAA Inspector 19: Most pools are built for adults or good swimmers. I love that this one seems to have been built specifically for the enjoyment of younger children.
The rooms at this fairly new hotel have vinyl plank flooring, upgraded coffeemakers and bright bathrooms. The large pool has a short lazy river feature and other kid friendly features.
