The room was satisfactory and the view was very nice and quiet. Dog-friendly, however charged an additional fee of 25 dollars for dogs. Bad wifi reception so unable to watch any programs consistently. Dining service was limited due to staffing issues.

Overall the property was ok but when we checked in and paid, we asked about what time was the breakfast being served. Was told we closed the breakfast on Wednesday and still charged us the amount with breakfast included. This was brought to his attention and said that is the cost of the room and there is no breakfast. The staff were smoking outside the front door and the place in general was not clean.
