Since I drive a Tesla it's important to me that I be able to charge overnight where I stay and I thank BW for making this available. Unfortunately however they only have one EV spot, it's not well marked and it's generally filled with a non-EV - so, if you want to charge you can park in the fire route...

From check in to check out the staff was amazing, very helpful and informative. The hotel is clean and well taken care of. Great pool and hot tub for a relaxing evening. The breakfast had something for everyone - from hot scrambled eggs and bacon to cereal and yogurt. Highly recommended!

No complaints, good value. I arrived at 1 a.m., and there was no one on the front desk. Took 10 minutes before she came back. Other than that a perfect night was had. She was probably the only employee on site at that time.
