Comfortable king size bed in the old section of the hotel very close to the elevator. There was lots of space in the room. Check out time was noon which gave us plenty of time to go get breakfast before packing up.

I recently stayed with a group on a golf trip. The price for a golf package was good, the included breakfast buffet was good, accommodations are pretty basic, nothing fancy, but very adequate. Indoor pool, nice staff.

Very nice hotel that allows dogs. Hotel has indoor pool, restaurant, and cocktail lounge on site. We celebrated Mothers day and had the brunch. It was amazing! The hotel is older but overall very nice sized and clean rooms.

Yes they have a pool and hot tub which were great. The problem is with the pets. There was a dog down our hall that barked and howled all the time. Called the front desk two days in a row and all they could say was sorry. There is a rule not to leave pets unattended but who follows them?... More

Naturally, we made reservations months ahead of our wedding day. We booked the honeymoon suite for our wedding night. After our ceremony (which wasn't late night) around 7pm, we arrived at The Doherty to check in. However, the a-holes working at this joint decided to give our room away. (We even had our rehearsal dinner here!) Apparently, reservations MONTHS in... More

Enjoyed a very good lunch at the Doherty on our way home from skiing up North. The service and the food were very good, with an exception selection of soups and sandwiches to choose from. Service was quick and we were back on our way in little over 90 minutes. Would recommend this establishment for a lunch break on trips... More

This hotel has everything you need. It has an indoor pool and hot tub. It's in the best location in town. If your looking for a place to stay you can't go wrong here. They have a restaurant that is pretty good. Everything in town is in walking distance. The rooms are clean and the staff is friendly.

This historic hotel is reasonably priced and has a good restaurant and a great bar. If your looking for a nice dinner in a small town this fits the bill. From sandwiches to steaks the food is very good. If you would rather have some cocktails and great bar food the bar is lively and fun. Very nice wait staff... More

While this hotel is convenient, clean and offers good on-site services, the only reason they can charge the rates they do is because there's only one other hotel in town. But it is what it is. I think the beds are too firm for me, but it's always hit and miss with hotels anyway. The staff is friendly and the... More
