Was please with the staff upon our arrival. Dave made sure our room was setup. The staff upgraded our room because of handicap and not able to do to many stairs. The rooms are designed well and the only thing that seemed to be missing was a microwave in the room. This would be handy with staying a week and... More

After reading the reviews I became very nervous about the impulse booking I had done without research. I called several times to ensure I would be staying in a newly renovated room and my reservations were solid and each time I called the person on the phone was super pleasant and reassuring.
