Great pool are and and well maintained hot tub to relax at the end of your drive. Understaffed like all biz these days but they try and take care of everything.

Great stay.

The hotel has a lot of potential, however the room need to be cleaned. We had sink that must have not been cleen for weeks and the floors the same. Beautiful property, just need someone to take care of it. Pool also needs maintenance.

The room was dirty.

The staff was very customer friendly. Shuttle service was a Godsend! on-site restaurant had great food! Would have been nice to have Housekeeping come every day to tidy up, empty baskets and leave fresh towels

The room was very comfortable and clean, the staff was very friendly. The breakfast was not great but I think they did the best they could considering Covid.

Very easy to find. Pool was nice. Breakfast was not good. We ate toast.

Quick check in, nice and clean and quiet rooms. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Lock on room door broke 2 times staff had to use crowbar to get it open.

A couple feedbacks: 1) The AC machine in room 247 needs to be cleaned. 2) The shuttle service was great!

Nice property and convenient to where we needed to be
