Nice spacious hotel with very friendly staff. We got very good rates as well. It is very close to the waterfront, hence overall good accessibility. Just be sure that you go out for dinner very early. Room was good as well. I loved the log design. Visited in July 2013

Some places have to be average, and that is what this is. There is nothing really wrong with it except for the very slow Wi-Fi; it is impossible to upload pictures. The laundry service was inexpensive and they did a good job. The breakfast is very good. The rooms are adequate. Not large and not luxurious, but OK. There is...

This was a beautiful log hotel. The art work was so exceptional that I kept taking photos. The staff was friendly and I took advantage of their computer and free internet right there in the lobby. The room was great and we had a walk out patio. The view from my room wasn't the best because it overlook a parking...

This hotel is charming and homely. On arrival, there was a welcome note for our group and our room keys with our names on them, were placed on a table. A lovely touch. There was also a welcome drink. The decor is very different from a typical hotel. The stained glass windows and birds, catch the eye. Very convenient location...

Cute little hotel in the city center not far from the waterfront. The lobby area is gorgeous, and the staff was very friendly. The room was comfortable, though I can never get used to a twin bed. And the included breakfast is REALLY great!
