Pros: The location is convenient to visit family. The indoor pool and hot tub are great to be able to spend time with family.
Cons: The side doors were not opening with key cards.
Pros: Liked location since it was close to family reunion. Staff was friendly and the room/bed very comfortable. Pool was clean and warm enough. Breakfast had a nice variety.
Cons: Bathroom could have been a little cleaner. Watching Hotel Impossible has made me much pickier.
Pros: Very beautiful and relaxed. Clean and not too pricey.
Pros: Nice location, pool & fitness area. Breakfast had a nice selection and staff was always friendly
Cons: Unreliable Internet connection, but the manager did help to try to correct.
We had several friends and relatives staying here as well. With an infant in tow, the 2 bed room had plenty of space for the pack n' play to be set up. The bathroom counter was large enough for the usual toweletries and the drying of the bottles we had. Overall, great experience.
Pros: The location of this hotel is convienient to the other small towns. The other options for lodging are not even close to the quality.
Cons: The parking lot does not make sense. The rear entry door has no parking and the side of the hotel where there is parking is not useful.
Pros: The rooms were very nice and the hotel staff was very friendly.
I thunk its a great hotel and wiah we could get better deals for the stay
Pros: Its close to the job site and has a very friendly staff.
Cons: We had spoiled milk for breakfast and the expiration dates were very close to the actual day.
I've stayed here every year for the past 4 years and can tell that it's starting to look 'tired' and not as fresh as when new but that is to be expected. I do believe they charge way too much for such a small town but then they are the only hotel in town so they can get away with it.
Cons: Not worth the price. Too expensive for such a small town.
Staff was friendly and complimentary breakfast was excellent!
Pros: Price & Location.
Pros: The outside appearance is very nice and it draws you to wanna see that hotel and go inside to see how it looks and having an indoor pool is AWSOME.
Pros: Great location and wonderful staff
Cons: We liked everything about the hotel
