We met a bartender who is from our hometown of Key West, FL. He made us feel welcome and gave us great advice on how to see the mountains and area. We really loved happy hour here and breakfast on our last day!

OMG!I walked into what used to be Checkers the other day and saw the new renovations and they are just awful!!! What used to be a warm friendly cheerful pub- like bar and restaurant is now all dark brown/black stark wood and rock decor in a minimalistic decor. All the fun things on the wall are gone, only saw one TV and the place looks like a dungeon. Checkers always had a homey fun bright atmosphere, no more..and they now call it "The Park". What a shame after almost 30 years of being a neighborhood bar and restaurant.

The place was almost empty on a Saturday, which is unusual, but I understand the regulars have just given up and gone elsewhere. We didn't stay, it was too creepy looking.
Whoever designed this must have been very depressed.
A real shame!!!!

Liked the service the best. Had a few appetizers (the hotel gives an appetizer coupon which makes for a very reasonable dinner).

Checkers Bar has that great bar athmosphere were there are sports on the tv's, good friendly customers and staff and even some karaoke. Good place for some bar food also and a great selection of beers.
