We booked this room for our wedding weekend. We had booked four rooms. Room #s 401, 430, 432, and 431. The rooms were very clean as was the hotel itself. The beds were super comfortable. Hotel staff was very welcoming and friendly. We stayed there for five nights. On Sunday evening, after the wedding, they allowed us to bring food and hang out in the lounge area. They even opened the kitchen so we could heat up food that was left from the reception. They offered very good continental breakfasts every morning, consisting of more than the danishes and juice. Monday through Thursday, they offered various appetizers as well as wine and soda - free of charge.
When reading reviews for this hotel prior to booking we had read reviews of slow drains and noises from the RR. Family members that were staying in Rooms 430, 431 and 432, said that they definitely could hear the train coming by. It did not come by often but they said they could hear it. I was in Room 401 and definitely did not hear the train going by. None of my family members said it ruined their stay nor would it stop them from returning. I would have to agree that at least in our room, the drain was a bit slow. Again, it would not stop me from returning to this room.
They have a pool, nothing special and a hot tub. We used both and everyone had a great time. The hot tub was not very hot though. Good thing is that the pool was indoors.
The only negative to the hotel, which is not necessarily a negative, is that besides a McDonald's there really is not anything within walking distance of the hotel. But they do have a shuttle service (although we did not use it) and there are several places that deliver to the hotel.
