I stayed here during a recent conference for my business, and enjoyed it. The staff is great, the place is clean and the setting is very nice and peaceful in a forested area. Masks are required in all common areas of course, and the restaurant is available for take away.

Unfortunately, the rooms, which are nicely updated, have an overpowering smell of mildew and the air conditioning doesn’t seem to cool very well. It is a very dark hotel with a country club vibe. We switched rooms one time, however, it still smelled. Not a great night of sleep! Being Titanium Elite members we were offered $3 off breakfast...didn’t seem right. The night staff wasn’t very friendly at check-in, a little friendlier once we needed to move rooms. The morning check out guy wasn’t friendly either. The rooms and hotel seemed very clean and tidy. Never tried the food. Could be much better...please fix the ventilation system.

My husband and I had our baby shower here this past weekend and everything was excellent from the food to the service. We were very impressed with how smoothly things flowed and how well the staff accommodated us. At no point did we feel rushed even when it was time for us to leave. We would highly recommend having an event here.

Had to be here for a meeting. The rooms were ok...meeting space was adequate but everything needs updating. The food was below average. If forced to go back it would be ok....but definitely would not choose to go back here on my own.
