The rooms were super accommodating, cozy and roomy. Hope to go back again next year. The indoor/outdoor pool was very cool, kids loved it. There was a room we could rent to have a team party. Worked out perfect. Great little town square also!

Location is excellent. Short walk to town square. Staff was very nice and helpful. Room furnishings were very dated. Kitchen cabinet door hinges were loose. Very dark even with all lights on. Pool has been closed for months with no notice on website.More
