It was great experience. Clean friendly staff. Well recommended.

The rooms are comfortable and the property is over the top. Good food and beverages with super nice staff backing this all up.

The property is great, and I love the place..... but the shower head in my room was one of the worst shower heads I’ve ever come across. Showers are important. Please update the shower heads.

You can spend a couple of days here, and not see everything. It’s a tourist attraction if I say so myself. From the class rooms sleeping quarters, restaurant, bars, movies theater, pool etcs.... the art is great it’s an awesome place to stay.

Best were all of the attractions (restaurants, bars, pool, things to see. No TV in the room was a minor flaw but one that caused me to lower my rating a bit.

I really liked that the hotel is a repurposed school. All very clever and fun. Many things to do on site- soaking pool, little and big bars, movies, live music.

Love to stay here, staff and rooms are always wonderful. So much to see and do.

Enjoyed our stay,especially the soaking pool was my favorite.Food was delicious,atmosphere pleasingand relaxing.

Love staying here, rooms are so special. It is a wonderful hotel and all the bars and restaurants are so warm and inviting. The movie theater is very cozy and they always have great movies playing.

Loved this hotel. Room was quaint and very comfortable. Clean and quiet. Overall the hotel was so unique. Loved all the bars and the theater was so charming. Comfortable seating and best dinner ever.

It was nice but bed was a little uncomfortable. .no TV couldn't figure out how or where to put extra heater.. yard care people where blowing leaves way to early outside our room.

Thank you for the review. We do not have TV's in our rooms, however some of our other properties do have them. We do have TV's in most of the bars if you wanted to catch a game. We also offer WiFi throughout the building.
