I had mixed feelings about staying after reading the reviews. We had a creek side room with two doubles. The room and bathroom were clean. The indoor pool was awesome! It's like being inside a cave. The cafe was slow because they didn't have enough people working the grill.

we enjoyed staying here, the location was great even if the walk back was uphill, it was quiet, rooms were clean, pools were nice. Only drawback is parking but we managed. We will return and stay here often!

First impressions - good location, quiet & only 1/2 mile from downtown. Staff was very nice, hotel was dated but clean and well maintained. The rooms were clean but terribly outdated and showed years of wear & tear. We couldn't find a plugin that would hold a cell phone charger. We asked for a nonsmoking room but unfortunately the room... More

The staff was so kind, we decided to extend our visit by an extra night and were graciously accommodated we didn't even have to change rooms! The staff also made sure that we recieved the best rates available! We... More

This is the third time we've stayed here. The last 2 times we had small issues. Room changing nightly last year etc. due to flooding, or other things. Upon invitation from a wonderful staff member by the name of April we returned this year with the understanding of a lower rate. My daughter likes it so I chanced it again.... More

The hotel was really nice; a little dated, but clean and the staff was super friendly! We chose it because it allowed us to have our dog and to let her stay in the room in her cage while we were out eating . . . Most places there say they don't, but how are you supposed to eat out... More

Major construction outside our windows, starting at 6AM (did not tell us). Bugs in the sink and flying in the air. Next door neighbors chain smoked outside our windows, too. Check-in clerk was a smartypants when I complained. Needs update and frayed rugs were not welcoming. I can't see any way they care or that you should succumb to their... More
