    The staff is amazing! They were extremely friendly and accommodating. The location is superb! The breakfast offers a nice variety.

    The bedding was not clean(the decorative that is on top). The rooms are in need of a little TLC with overall maintenance of painting etc.

    Everything! Breakfast was very good, and our 2 bedroom queen suite was clean, spacious and comfortable. The complimentary cookies and apples at reception were also a bonus. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Hotel decor was stylish.
