I was traveling alone for a meeting, but will be returning with the family. Room amenities were wonderful, especially the big sunken tub! I had a king with balcony overlooking the river and it was like my own private resort with the sound of the river just outside my window. Perfect for coffee in the mornings or winding down at...

The hotel is easy to find off the highway. Big hotel with lots of parking. Rooms are large and a little worn but clean. Great breakfast buffet but limited seating when it was busy. Loved the river and well kept grounds.
