    The staff was friendly, the facilities were clean, laundry facilities were onsite were a real blessing. We would stay there again without hesitation. It was quiet and the staff was very helpful. Checkin and Checkout were fast.

    My family and I were only there for one night to visit my son's college. The hotel was nice and clean, the staff was very welcoming, friendly and informative. The only complaint I would have is that the area can benefit from more restaurant options.

    Yes of course you can, although the water is still pretty chilly right now. It is actually snowing here right now! There is a great local beach at Lake Colby which is about two miles away from our hotel.
