We were in for a wedding and the pictures online literally had us scared. We are definately city folk and expect a good hotel. Their pictures don't do the place justice. It is actually a really nice place - not 5 star luxury but the best you will find in town. We were in for a wedding and actually the bride and groom stayed the night here.
I was uneasy at the late check in, I guess they just taped our key to the door on the outside. Safe town I guess because it is a common practice. The room was old but looked recently done. New bedding, new t.v. new bathroom flooring. It was clean. Comfortable bed - like you would get at the Hilton, fluffy pillows and fairly large. We had a fridge and little table. The town is teenty tiny, you could walk from end to the other in about 10 minutes but it cute. The hotel employees and everyone in Republic were very friendly. It earns a 5 stars since it really is the best in Republic.
