This place is an outdated, overrated, gross turd. Upon entrance to the so called suite you find a very outdated room with decades old furniture and decor. The bathroom was last remodeled probably 30 years ago and the tub and shower are nasty. Upon inspection of the bed I found torn seems and it looked as though a dog had... More

Dear Guest, We apologize if you did not have a satisfactory stay at our hotel. We know our property is older than some of the other hotels in our area. We do however pride ourselves in clean rooms and superior customer service. If you did not experience either of those I would ask that you please contact a manager at... More

Our room was very clean and the bedding was nice, however the bed was hard as a rock. Some people might prefer a very firm mattress but to me it felt like sleeping on a bed in a camper. There was only somebody at the front desk about 50% of the time we tried to call or stop by. The... More

My wife and I spent two night here for a wedding. It started with having to wait behind 8 people checking in with one person behind the desk who was also answering the phone and then they didn't have a reservation for the man ahead of me. We got a room on the second floor, but know that there are... More

The room is large and comfortable. Staff is pleasant. Pool area is great. Cannot get Wi-Fi anywhere in the hotel and the computer in the lobby does not work properly. Shuttle to airport is not available during advertised times.

This is a very comfortable accommodation. Our third stop in 3-4 years, and another good one. The farm ambiance and friendly service were still evident. We had a comfortable room, a good sleep and a well above average breakfast. We got what we expected and were glad we returned as the first stop on a long drive across the country.

Nice hotel but be sure you get a room that fits your mood. For us that means no shrieking, parents who monitor their children occasionally and no wafting chemical odor. The room with pool looked nice upon entering, it even had a table and chairs outside our sliding doors but alas children appeared. The hotel was very pleasant about changing... More

Our family stayed here on the way out to a mission trip in South Dakota and again on the way back. The appearance inside and out was clean and inviting. We enjoyed the staff and they were very attentive to our needs even with softball tournament teams staying there. The only negative would be the hot tub could have been... More

We have stayed at this hotel twice in the last year. The first time we had a great experience and everything about it was wonderful! The second time we stayed, most of the experience was good except our (non-smoking) room smelled like smoke and some sort of musty odor. Turning the A/C on only made it worse but it was... More

We recently stayed at this hotel and found it to be the perfect place for a stop over. The hotel is beautiful and the room, the staff, and the breakfast were exceptional. The lobby was beautiful with a guest computer on one side and a lovely sitting area on the other side on a raised platform. We didn't have time... More

I stayed here two nights mid July 2013 on business. The staff were friendly and the hotel is clean and spacious. Room is nice, if basic, though one of my two beds was clearly broken so I used the other. Hotel was packed to the brim and sold out with a mix of summer travelers, business, worker crews and baseball... More
