This is a cute hotel. The bed was OK. The bathroom only had a shower...I'm glad that the kids stayed home. No hot tub on site put a damper on our plans to soak at the end of the day. The fire pit was nice to sit by on a chilly night, but you need to be pretty much on top of it to feel the heat. You are not in walking distance of the downtown area or the better restaurants though. You do need to get into the car to see the town.
I was terribly disappointed with my room location mostly due to the airport across the street. Room 200 is at the front of the building and perhaps the WORST room if you are not a heavy sleeper. On both nights of my stay, I was up way too early because of the planes taking off. You mostly hear small propellers but I did hear a jet on a few occasions. Also, housekeeping didn't make it to our room until at least after 2:30pm and because we came back to relax for the afternoon, they never got into our room for new linens. We had left around 9am that day to give them time to get in here -- it never happened.
Breakfast is OK. If you are a HHonors member, you will get the continental breakfast but it's not much at all. For $4 more, you can upgrade to the hot buffet -- which isn't too bad for the price. If you are paying out of pocket for the whole thing, find somewhere else. The Keltic Kitchen is a nice place and not too far away. There are other, better options to check out than the hotel.
When we checked in, I was surprised that the front desk tried to keep me out of the restaurant. The staff said that they had 6 buses in for a tour and suggested that we go elsewhere. But we didn't see the crowd. Anyway, we were happy to grab take-out from the Black Cat on the first night (45 minute wait for table...so we took it to go) and wandered to Spanky's Clam Shack (which was across the street from the Black Cat and few bucks cheaper) on our second night.
Overall, an average stay. If you aren't spending hours in your room, it works. But again, don't let them put you in a low number room. The better views are in the odd numbered rooms which overlook the courtyard and fire put; even numbers overlook the parking lot.
