Very clean rooms, wonderfully helpful staff and it's right beside the Christmas Place so I can walk there! My husband and I love to go out back to the riverside to watch the ducks play. Very peaceful and relaxing.

We stayed for one night and the room was small but sufficient for sleeping. Lots of noise from the adjoining rooms (thin walls? Vents??) and upstairs. Pool looked nice, but it is December and the idea of having to walk outside in a wet bathing suit to get back to the room was not appealing. Hotel was clean. Staff was... More
