    Everything was clean and functional. Staff was informative and helpful. Directions to area attractions and eating places were right on. Would be my first choice next time I am traveling that way. Easy to find.

    Still waiting for the return of our money for the room. After all this time I expect we never will get it, but maybe my honest review of this place is just desserts enough! The manager told me I was very uppity and was talking "down" to him. I really didn't mean t but I was firmly attempting to get back the cost of the nights lodging we'd paid for!
