An older hotel that works hard on cleanliness and service. One of the few hotels that will accept our three dogs. Even though it's dog friendly there was no smell of dog odor. This is an older hotel but they have worked hard to bring it up to date. Rooms face a beautiful park like setting. We will return.

There's no reason why 1 of the 2 buildings has major hot water. It seems as if the front desk staff have been given strict instructions that they have to fill up the building that has the major defect first before they start filling up the " normal" building. It takes more than 15 minutes for the water to start...

We were concerned about parking our car in the back by our room so we parked in front and walked back thru...

I got one of the renovated rooms. Although the room was very nice, there was hardly any pressure (water) in the sink. The shower had no hot water whatsoever.
