Be warned! The hotel has a banquet suite that can be rented out for all sorts of events. We were unlucky enough to be there the weekend of a large and loud birthday party - complete with music sound system. It started around 7pm and the hotel was clear around 12.30am.
There seems to be no soundproofing (hardwood floors) in the hotel what so ever so we were forced to leave our room for the entire night. We are a couple in our thirties and like a good time as much as the next couple, but this mix of hotel and event space just does not work if you're looking for a quiet place to stay.
Plus side. Staff were actually very nice and after making it clear we would not pay for the room, there was no issue.
Basically, ask is they have any events before you go. Otherwise, a decent place.
