4/5 Good

Traveled with family
Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Amenities
It was quiet even though the property is right next to the road. The room had a lot of space. We took groceries because there were no restaurants open late but we didn't have a refrigerator or microwave.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Room was clean, but outdated. Water pressure was awful. Toilet very hard to flush, likely due to the terrible water pressure.

5/5 Excellent

Traveled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Hotel was very nice. This is a very small community but it is a fun place to visit. Just be prepared to be very flexible on the eating part. Hours are not the same as you would find in a larger city or small town. Very nice people and it's a very charming town.
