My family rented six rooms for a several night stay for a reunion. We chose this hotel due to proximity to a family member's house.
It is not a bed and breakfast. More like an abbreviated low cost motel with a few ( and same each day) breakfast choices... Dry cereal and left over pastries. The hot water and tea bags were good.
But we went to The Roastery down the street for coffee and croissants.
Rooms were spacious and beds were comfortable. But there are only two small lumpy pillows per bed. We had to ask for more in unit 5.
The placement of the bed was the cause for bruising. The oversized entertainment center ( in unit 5) is only about 15 inches from the square cornered footboard. (Similar in other units. The doors in the center in one unit did not push in when open, making the passageway even smaller). Two persons could not pass at the same time. Additionally, you were bound to cut the corner too sharply when getting up during the night thereby causing a significant bruise. Been there/done that. No hotel should have square corners on a footboard. The problem could be minimized by either replacing the center with a much smaller unit, placing the small television on a table, or switching the table and center in a different area of the room.
The ceiling fan is great.... If you desire only one speed, which is hurricane force. One room fan didn't work at all, so management had to bring in a floor fan. The Manager was very accommodating and friendly in all aspects, but she acknowledged she was aware of the intermittent fan problem, but apparently hasn't had it fixed. Wall switches for the fans did not work properly in all rooms.
A small rubber stopper on the shower head in a few rooms popped out at first causing water to spray all over their bathroom.
Unit 6 has a transom window that allows in the sun making the room especially hot.
Room hair dryers must be originals and only work well on bald heads. One room didn't bring a dryer because she was told there were dryers provided - but they barely blow warm air. Management provided her with a portable unit at her request..
At least one room's fireplace did not work.
The hotel is in a great location if you don't want to drive to restaurants, etc. But it could have been noisier if the attached but unrelated bar had not been under construction. Unit 5 was quiet even with the window open.
Hotel structure is in need of maintenance and updating.
Because of location, the price is probably "reasonable" for the area, which is something to consider. But we wouldn't stay here again unless there were improvements.
