My husband and I stayed here for a quick Christmas shopping trip. The location is handy to downtown, but it's a dreary view out the window. We were on the 4th floor. The rooms were clean and the amenities were very nice (Bath and Body Works shampoo, soap, and conditioner) and

They say an upgrade is coming 12/16.
Careful of the low ceiling over the bathroom sink
Clean, tiled shower with lots of water pressure
Me standing in the tub so you can see the whole bathroom.
This is in front of the bed.
do you supply a shuttle to the downtown area
hi sorry the hotel does not have shuttle service,however there are taxis there that can take you to the town which is only 7 or 8 minutes from the hotel. There are parking lots in the town and the cost is $1.25 per hour once you park you can walk anywhere as the town is not very large and beautiful to see all the wonderful flowers and gardens. Enjoy

"back of the hotel might be quieter."
"Take anything but the 6th floor!"
"one side looks out at the highway/traffic circle, the other side a wall of trees"
"stayed several times, all clean & quiet rooms."
"Lower rooms would be best as you could use stairs."
