We stayed in late Oct as a Interval Time Share exchange. Front desk people were very friendly and helpful (except the male who manned the desk on Monday). Due to cancelations (related to the floods), we were upgraded to a two bedroom (with 2.5 baths). Suite was spacious, kitchen as advertised (small refrigerator with tiny freezer), two-burner cooktop, but the toaster oven was full-featured and large, but still the size of a toaster oven. Bedding and towels were higher grade. Towels and supplies were generous. There was more closet and shelf space for clothes than I think I've ever seen - even plenty of space if there are two additional people staying on the pull-out sofa. In spite of renovations, some of the problems related to an older building were present. The baseboard heat made the whole building hot. Even though we turned ours off and kept windows open most of the time, the room was usually too hot - even with outside temps of daily highs 40-50s. The second bedroom had no window so was always hot (75 or more) even with a box fan trying to blow cooler air into the room. Never needed more than a sheet to sleep with, even with thee ceiling fan on high. This hotel is a frequent site for weddings and the music could be easily heard in our 2nd floor suite, even with the TV on. The front desk warned us and assured us the music would end at 10:00 pm. It did indeed end at 10 pm. There was a wedding on both Sat and Sun, not the rest of the nights. The restaurant was closed for the season (which we knew ahead of time). While there was a collection of board games, DVDs, and a pool table, be aware this is a hotel converted to a time-share, so does not have all the typical "resort" amenities and sponsored activities. Conveniently located and one could walk to downtown if one didn't mind the hike back up a steep hill to get back. We drove everywhere! In spite of the wedding music and temperature problem, yes, we would stay here again.
