    Resort fee

    BEWARE that this hotel charges an additional per night "RESORT FEE", which is nothing more than a way for the hotel to advertise one low room rate, only to surprise unsuspecting customers with the extra fee. Yes, if you scroll way down on the booking site you can see the extra resort fee in small print. Great. Since this fee is not a tax and is charged per night, why is it separate from the room rate? It is because they want you to think you are getting a good deal. I've only recently heard about "resort fees", the sneaky trick used by some hotels.

    I like that they give you an hour of kayaking or paddle boarding but when we stayed was the one day it rained so unfortunately we didn’t get to use it.

    Our one night stay felt like a mini vacation. We were greeted warmly and given an upgraded room In addition, a smores kit, drink coupon and offers off free paddleboarding followed. What a treat! Brunch at the Decoy, with ia view of mama swan and her babies invited our smiles! Thank you !fmemorab
