Pleasant place to stay

It's definitely no 5-star, but overall clean with nice room size. Could use updating. If hey remodeled the rooms with more contemporary appointments, this would be a real gem.

Enjoyed the stay

Staff was nice. It was a quiet, clean and relaxing stay. The TV's in the room were really outdated but it had full cable and worked fine. Enjoyed the stay for the price. Reccomended.

Weekend Stay

This hotel was very cute and has beautiful landscaping (beautiful garden and sculptures). The room was very big but there were a few things I had complaints about. The bed was very hard and the shower head didn't have even flow. The drape handle was broken. Just a few little things here and there needed to be fixed but overall it was a cute hotel and the staff were very nice!

Surprisingly nice for a good price

This was probably the nicest place we could have found given our price range. I've seen a lot worse places that charge a lot more to stay. I would definitely stay there again.
