Thank you so much for your kind words about our property and staff regarding your last stay. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed our amenities in the room as well as in the public areas. I do apologize about the far walk to our ice machines, but just as our housekeeper offered, any of our dedicated staff are always willing to help our guests out when asked. We hope you come back again get to enjoy the Gator's Den and see for yourself how great the food is!
