Nice for a quick visit. We were in town for an event so being on the go we just used the room to sleep and shower and go.The room was a bit tight, however for an older property they clearly care and have done a decent job with modernizing it. Property was lovely and staff was top notch.

A decent place to stayDecent place to stay, nothing glamorous or spectacular but clean and has all the basic amenities. The problem is not a lot separates the places under $100 a night and this is one of those places. To me, the difference between the place I paid 30 cheaper than this one is minimal.

The air conditioner was loud and we used at night for great "white noise". Eating ...
