Typical Ho-Jo - nothing fancy, the hotel was what we expected. The complimentary breakfast definitely needs work - bagels and danish were short of stale and limited selection.

I'm not really picky and we stayed at this hotel because it was Pet Friendly. We did not get a "Pet Friendly" room but you would have thought so. I'm not sure how else to say this but I've never been more grossed out in a room before in my life and slept fully clothed for the first time in...

The lobby was wonderfully decorated for Christmas, complete with a roaring fire in the fireplace. We stayed a week. The housekeepers did a wonderful job - room was always clean each day with enough towels for us...it was spotless. Staff were very friendly too. We would highly recommend the hotel. Location was perfect. It was close to many restaurants and...

This hotel prides itself as "award winning" though I did not find out what award was won! It is well cared for. I had two maintenance issues in my room which were fixed within an hour of my reporting the problem. There are mysteries, however: my bathroom seemed recently renovated with a large walk-in shower while there are nicks in...

Our room was clean and comfortable. The restaurant and pub were a definite plus. The restaurant closes at 8 P.M. but you can still get food in the pub and some nice entertainment.

Reserved our room in advance, because it advertised Bus/Truck/RV parking. We were travelling with a large trailer and needed that amenity. Upon arrival, the (unhelpful) desk clerk looked as if he'd never heard of such a parking arrangement. We had to back a huge trailer (in the dark) into a row of several regular parking slots. As if that wasn't...
