Can't wait to go back.

We just got back from a three day stay. We have travelled all over the world and this was by far the best experience we have ever had. The food and service was amazing. Never before have I enjoyed eating as much as these few days. We tried all the restaurants and were impressed by everything offered. Can't wait to go back.

College tour time

I found the location so easily. Parking was even better, choose valet or parking lot 50 ft away! It was raining and cold when we arrived. Hot showers, movies, and well stocked frig were a plus. Check the menu first as each item costs $$. The beds were most comfortable!
