I recently stayed here for one night. I was in town for a funeral. I have a rather large family and after the wake some (25) of us decided we wanted something to eat. We called the hotel from the funeral home to make sure the kitchen was still open and could accommodate us.
Arriving at the hotel we entered the restaurant and took the staff apparently by surprise. They were not aware of our call. The only person there was a bartender who also waitresses. Since she was alone we told her we could go somewhere else. She said no it would be fine.
Koodos to her ... She rallied the troops and got several people to help her and accommodated almost 30 of us with no notice at all. She was awesome and gets high marks in my book.
The hotel overall is a bit dated as other people have said. However, the room was comfortable and quiet. There was construction going on so I assume they are starting the process of updating the hotel.
I would definitely give this place another stay next time I am in town.
