Decent size room, somewhat up to date on the amenities, no mattress or sheets on the pull out couch and no breakfast but there was a Bob Evans, McDonald's, and other food places within walking distance.

I want to apologize that you missed out on our FREE HOT BREAKFAST as it is something that we have been working very hard to improve, but as you stated there are several good options for breakfast near by as well. Generally speaking there are extra sheets and such for sleeper sofa, but sounds as if there where none available... More

We found this hotel late at night during recent thunderstorms. Hotel is older and a bit like a lodge. Room was very clean and extremely spacious. No elevator. Breakfast was free and not great. Breakfast room quite crowded. Room decor was a little boring but bed was comfortable.

Ok hotel for the price. It was super hot the weekend we stayed and it took forever for the air conditioning to cool the room. Breakfast had some nice items but were clearly picked over by wedding guests staying at the hotel so there was a limited amount of food left and space to eat. We ended up eating in... More

While attending a wedding we stayed at this BW. We were pleasantly surprised that we had a lake view room that was huge. The lake was covered with weeds and scum but still had a wide variety of ducks, geese,and swans to watch. The room had a very comfortable king bed and a private balcony. The hotel is older and...

We stayed here in June. The service was good, the staff friendly, the room big and clean. We got a room facing the little pond and the parking. A bit too noisy as you hear the traffic all the time. What we didn't like at all was the breakfast in a small noisy room. Everything is on paper or plastic,... More
