“Comfortable & Clean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

It was a nice place to stay- we felt safe & comfortable. The room was clean and nicely decorated. The bed was comfy! The breakfast hours were great and the food was good. The pool and hot tub were clean and the water temperature for both was good. The location was pretty good- it was easy to get to everything since it was right off of I-80 but then the noise from the road was loud when we sat by the pool but not too bad in the room itself.

I am so glad to read that you found our beds comfortable and enjoyed our pool and hot tub when you stayed with us. We have our breakfast hours from 5:30 A.M. until 9:30 to accommodate our guests that want to get going early and also offer "take with pasteries" and snacks for those that really need to continue on their way quickly.

This was a last minute stop for us and we were pleased with the choice. Check-in was quick, our room was large and clean. A back window had been left open so the room was fresh. Although right off the freeway, we were not bothered by traffic sounds. There were several restaurants within walking distance which was great because we did not want to drag our boat around town. There was ample parking for our truck and 22' boat.

I really enjoyed staying at this hotel. Freshly baked cookies on your arrival. The staff was warm and friendly. Nice grounds with colorful flowers and lawn for your furry friends. The room was very clean, nicely decorated, with nice linens and bedspreads. They gave us plenty of yummy soft towels. The shower gel and shampoo was in a dispenser on the wall in the shower and was really nice. The room was quiet even though it was just off a semi major highway. The TV clicker was sanitized ( I love that) and the flat screen TV was a plus. I had no problems with the free WiFi. Breakfast was the typical continental breakfast with waffles, cereal, yogurt, boring store bought pastries and muffins. But the breakfast area was very clean and welcoming. They had a pool and jacuzzi which I didn't use but it seemed well kept and tidy.

Room Tip: We enjoyed a room along the back of the property on the first floor. It was very quiet and heard no...

I would like to thank you for taking the time to complete one of these surveys and I am pleased to see that you appreciated the "clean remotes" and also that we have the shampoo and shower gel dispensers to try to eliminate the waste from the individual bottles and to comply with our being a green hotel.

This was a very pleasant hotel. From the amenities, to the very friendly/helpful staff, to the dog friendly environment. And it was a great deal. Will very likely stay here again if we find our way this way in the future. And will certainly recommend it to others.

Nice Hotel - Friendly Service - small rooms but the beds are extremely comfortable - not a great deal of parking. Close to restaurants, shopping and other services. Front desk staff very friendly and breakfast area extremely clean and variety of foods for breakfast.

This is a nice, clean hotel and a great place to stay for the money. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was waffles, pastries, fruit, cereal and beverages. The dining area was very clean and pleasant. I will definitely stay here again if I am in the area.
