Nice Stay

Nothing fancy, but not the worstt either. The shower could have been better, but, the room was clean and staff were friendly. The hotel canceled our reservation, but they fixed it for us and admitted that it was their fault.

Great stay

I stayed 5 nights and found the experiecne very enjoyable and great location with easy highway access. The staff was incrediblty nice and helpful at all hours of the day. I did eat at the hotel a few times and really enjoyed the food and prices were reason, which made it even better. Rooms, grounds, pool and hot tub were clean. It's a family business and it shows that they value customers.

Good location - iffy service

Showed up and took about 20 minutes to check in. Room was really nice, bed was big and comfy, however, hotel staff forgot to change the shampoo/lotion bottles as they were clearly opened by the last guests but never replaced. $12 a night parking is stupid, especially since NOBODY would ever walk to the hotel to stay there.

decent for the Weekend

Staff was friendly and helpful. There are extra charges i was unaware of. 12$ per night parking, 50$ per day deposit. Room was a little pricey for the value. Traffic can be dreadful in front of entrance due to weddings and whatnot.
