Large rooms allowing wedding parties to get ready with enough room. Comfy beds but not comfy pillows. Pool was clean. Staff was awesome., very accommodating. Breakfast included was good, fresh oatmeal not the instant stuff. Tasty!

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review about your recent stay at our hotel. On behalf of our entire team, I would like to apologize for failing to exceed your expectations.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review about your recent stay at our hotel. We are glad that we were your choice hotel in attending multiple medical appointments. We do our best to offer guests pet-friendly accommodations with the best possible convenience for all guests. Pet friendly rooms are reserved for outdoor access with hardwood floors. The outdoor access is found to be easiest for guests bringing their fur-family as they do not need to walk the pet through the hotel hallways to let them outside. I am sorry to hear that you were having trouble with the heat in your room but appreciate that the front desk staff tried to accommodate a suitable solution to the best of their abilities. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed our extensive selection for breakfast. We have done our best to balance the need for more parking stalls while still having some grass spaces. I hope that you will consider staying with us again so that we can have another chance to provide you with another exceptional experience.

I am pleased to hear that you appreciate our use of bedbug protectors on all beds. We feel that every layer of protection is an added bonus! The hotel staff do their best to salt and clear the front tile entrance and try to always have a caution sign out to ensure all guest are aware of the potential slip hazard.

"Rooms closer to the office area are more convenient, but not able to be rented by persons with accompanying pets."
"Any room would be O.K., I guess? I have experienced ONLY one."
"Ask to get a discount if the hot tub isn't working due to poor maintenance."
"We stayed in a room on the main floor of the hotel and did not have to go outside to reach our room. I was very grateful for that."
"Second floor rooms are more insulated. Check the heating when you arrive."
