They fed all the animals and didn't want to get back in. The hotel has a small cozy pool and breakfast was well provided for and included in...

I have stayed here many times and enjoy the location, grounds, plentiful breakfast (many of their products are kosher), and amenities that are standard in each room (fridge and microwave).

We stayed here for one night, and it was a nice stay. It's located a bit outside downtown so a car is needed if you want to go to the beaches and State St. The pond is very cute and a perfect pool. Rooms are big and nice.
