The front staff were friendly when we arrived. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was at convenient times. When we arrived they appeared to be trying to upgrade the outside of the property and the gardens. It is looking good! We did not use the pool. I found it a little pricey compared to other places we had been...

The Inn is making a good effort to establish itself as an independent motel. They were erecting a new sign the day we arrived. Our rooms were clean and quiet and the beds were comfy. We all enjoyed the pool, which was a comfortable temperature for the young children in our group. Breakfast had something for everyone. The staff was...

Good enough room. Four people booked and only three towels. They did not forget to bill me for the four people...but can't give us four towels. Needed a bit earlier check-in so we could change after a long drive for a 2:00 pm wedding. Would not accommodate us at all. But it was a great breakfast.

Recognizing that this is a small inn in a small town we felt this hotel was well kept, clean and a good place for an overnight while travelling.
