I stayed here during a 4-day trip with my two kids (7&10).
First the great stuff:
1. GREAT breakfast, kids loved it
2. Indoor pool - kids played in it for 2 hours a day and LOVED it.
3. Great location. We walked to the train station and historic district/restaurants. Was close enough for walking with two kids so didn't need a car.
4. GREAT staff at front desk - gave the kids extra cookies, helped w restaurant suggestions - and really nice.
5. Nice rooms - updated and all the up-to-date goodies.
Now for the bad (and it's just one thing)
1. The A/c is a wall/window unit, not central air. We were on an interior room, and the A/c blew into the bathroom - main bedroom area was hot. They did give us a fan, and also have us a discount on our stay (even offered to change our room), but we were unpacked- so just stayed and got the good discount (50%off)!
Overall - GREAT place and I would highly recommend.
(A little late on the review - but am thinking about going back, and this was the place I will stay again! Thought I would give them some good press:-)...)
