I loved the atmosphere. I loved the check in. I loved the room, but then I met the real office personnel. First experience was to ask for additional pillows. I was told by housekeeping I would need to visit office for that request. I did. Terry told me she would tell housekeeping. I asked Terry if "0" would dial them... More

We enjoyed this hotel. Good location. Comfy beds. Awesome water pressure in the shower. Convenient gas station right next door. If you can't handle early morning traffic noise this hotel isn't for you but you're on vacation right get up and get moving early and it doesn't make a difference. Only thing the rooms need are microwaves.

This place is about your average 3 star hotel, then you take into account it's around $75 a night with a free pancake breakfast. So if you account for the price of breakfast anywhere else it's saving you $20 a day for 2. I'm not big on pancakes so I ate other things on their menu, and you can use... More

This place is fantastic! Great value for the money spent. They even gave free pancake breakfast for every morning during your stay! They are HUGE! You can order one or two.

The rooms were hopefully just in the processes of being remodeled. Nice comfy bed but that was about all. Carpets were extremely dirty, moldy shower curtains, absolutely no lighting, very few electrical outlets and the outlets that were there some were non working, the air unit was next to the bathroom so we froze to death getting ready. The air... More

The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about surroundings. I enjoyed our stay immensely. Very clean room. Free wifi. Free cookies in the lobby. Would definitely recommend ! Everything is so close… you don't have to go far to find horseback riding, souvenir shops, and dining possibilities.

The rooms were very clean, they looked like they had been recently painted and new bedding and furnishings. The beds were super tall! I'm 5'2" and had difficulty getting onto the bed. No closet in room or ironing board/iron. There was a hair dryer. The lighting over the sink was very dim. The pool and area around it was clean... More
