Wonderful and welcoming staff/people! The hotel is an older style ( i.e decor) but very clean, especially for being pet friendly! Had a great time and would definitely stay again.

I hardly ever write a review and I feel really bad writing poor ones. However, It's time to step up the game. I'm a business owner as well and if my hotels maintenance was not up to par I wouldn't be making any money. Our heater did not work in our room at all. I let the front desk know...

The hotel is old and needed refurbishing but probably a rebuild would be cheaper. Excellent location and easy to find. It was clean but the pillows smelled stale. The bathroom fan ran all the time so we kept the door closed at night. Staff were friendly and helpful.
