          Is this an appropriate place for a romantic anniversary weekend? Wondering if there are suites available. Jacuzzi tubs? Also, is there a restaurant/bar onsite?

          No restaurant on site but there is a pizza place next door. I do not think there are any suites or jacuzzi tubs. The balcony rooms do not have private balconies. Nice place but probably not for romantic getaways.
