Very clean friendly Inn. Love the huge complimentary breakfast buffet. We love the option of getting ice cream or pizza and sitting outside by the firepit, all without having to leave the Inn. Huge outdoor backyard seating area

We stayed at this hotel 3 years ago and really enjoyed it. The hotel was clean and close to all the attractions. This time was different...we were surprised at how musty the room smelled and how dirty it was. We decided not to stay and moved on to another hotel. To their credit, the staff members were very pleasant. We...

With Christian music playing in the lobby, I felt right at home at this hotel. When we were there it was very peaceful, restful and very clean. We loved the breakfast and made to order omelet that we had everyday we were there. We had a suite with a queen and double bed separated by a partial wall. It would...

Very nice hotel. Modern, clean and a great start. Only one small problem, my wife is in a wheelchair and we had requested an accessible room. They had a room but it was on the third floor. We have had this same problem at other hotels including Disney World. Posted on every elevator I have ever seen is a notice...

I love the location which is close to the flea market, downtown shops, etc. The hotel room was okay. I felt the carpeting needs to be clean in the room we stayed in. To me it smelled like stinky feet. My daughter thought it smelled musty. We would notice the smell whenever we entered the room. The room looked clean...
