Friendly staff at check in. Great variety at breakfast. Lobby and breakfast seating inviting. Room is in need of repairs, updating and beds were not comfortable. Best part of it is they are dog friendly! Makes it nice when we travel as a complete family!

Very close. Under a 1/2 mile to where I am suspecting you will be leaving out from. I would not suggest walking as there aren’t construction free sidewalks and traffic can get a bit congested.
