    It is a beautiful and comfortable place to stay. The atmosphere begins when you drive up, and we felt at home. Our check in and check out was quick and easy. Everyone working there was very friendly and helpful. We loved it!

    Great hotel with clean rooms. Free bottled water and internet! Hair scrunchie in the shower cap box...nice touch for those of us with long hair. Quiet venue even being close to the railroad tracks....the ear plugs were a nice touch though.
