Good Resting Stay

Great location that is tucked away in seclusion off a busy road - really felt like you were away from all the traffic and very quiet.

The staff were pleasant, the hotel was quite clean, the only negative was that my GPS had difficulty finding the address.

shuttle available for dining within 2 miles

Complimentary shuttle for dining allows multiple choices for restaurants because of the hotel's location. The shuttle will drop you off and pick you up if the destination is within 2 miles of the hotel. This was a pleasant surprise.

Nice Place

This hotel was ok. The staff (front desk, cleaning ladies, and shuttle driver) made this place even better because they were so friendly and nice. However, the room, which looked fantastic, left you wanting when you settled in for the night. The temperature in the room was difficult to regulate and the fan turned off and on. When it was on it was great. When it was off it was if I were sleeping in a room filled with the people that were on my floor. The walls are thin. I could hear the people in the hall and I could hear the shrill laughter all night long and all morning long of my neighbor. So when you stay here, and you should (it has a fantastic location and great staff), you will want to have some way to make white noise. The breakfast was great too, they have this fantastic machine that makes pancakes in about 1 min. and they tasted pretty good! All in all it was a good stay just tough to get a good sound sleep!

Great View

The staff was very helpful. The entrance to the hotel can be tricky as it is located on top of a ridge.
