    Family stayed in 5 rooms, for 3 nights. Great place to stay. Staff was helpful with a smile always. Pool was covered up, but only because it kept the heat in. Best pool i have been in. Very warm. Bed comfortable. Great price. Breakfast good.

    Basic and clean. Easy to find. Bed was good and staff was helpful. Located right off I80, it was a last minute choice, but worked out fine. My wife booked on-line as I was reaching my driving limit. All fine.
