Reviewed July 25, 2005

We were generally pleased with this hotel, staying there twice in July of 2005. The second time the pool had clouded badly and water tests were not good, but at least the hotel staff responded at once and closed the pool.

The room with a hot tub is an EXCELLENT way to unwind after a long day on the road. It's a real luxury that can't be beat and only costs few dollars extra. The huge bathroom is a treat as well.

The beds were comfortable and the room was nicely furnished.

I'd stay again.
