Clean and good beds. Only double which was a disappointment. There was no coffeepot or a microwave in the room. The wait service in the attached restaurant was good. Commented on the fact that some of the waitpersons in the restaurant had hair flying all over and not contained. Good food for the value. Good breakfast in the morning is...

Awesome staff and the rooms were very nice. Excellent restaurant attached too. Pool and hot tub were great. Felt like being at home! Recent upgrades to decor were nice too. This is not a new hotel, so there are imperfections, but that was minor compared to everything else. Excellent value!

Were treated wonderfully by all the staff with any problems or concerns we had. Needing extra blankets to getting the bus back so we could get to the Surf. Also Todd helping us get the room set up for our luncheon, anything we needed set up special. Also all the staff that helped with the luncheon they were all wonderful.

Used BW 3 times in the last couple years and stay has always been good. The pool and the hot tub were very clean and the inside access to the restaurant was very helpful on a cold January night. Always good.
