From the outside, this quaint looking group of cottages and apartments is just lovely- a very comfortable looking place with a nice pool and well maintained grassy area right in the center of the small community. A beautiful hillside and grassy fields provide nice scenery as well. However, once you are inside of the rooms you realize that the owners, who live on the property, do not put much money into maintaining the place. Our room had both plumbing and A/C issues (the A/C basically didn't work and the toilet barely flushes) and the towels provided are the thin ones similar to the ones you see in the Dollar Stores. The hotel is convenient to many restaurants within a short drive but nothing really within walking distance. Most disturbing to us was the advertisement of "access to river" promoted by the owners of this hotel- they provide a hand drawn map that supposedly shows you how to access the river behind the hotel. Wrong. What you can access is a field of waist high grass filled with ticks with ankle level barbed wire hidden throughout the field. I explored this field for half an hour finding no obvious trails to the river- although there of dozens of trails in the grass made by other guests wandering around this field looking for the river access. We were there three days and I observed several other guests wandering around this grassy field in circles looking for a trail that doesn't exist, at least not in April. Not sure why they like to advertise that feature.
Overall, an adequate hotel for a short stay, but nothing spectacular.
