All staff were friendly. Check-in was fast and very thorough. The surrounding grounds are very nice. We were lucky enough to see several deer and fawns during our stay there. The included breakfast, nice rooms and friendly staff made this property a bargain in our book.

The property was very dark and dingy. This was way different than the photos. There were pubic and head hair in the shower. The single and only redeeming factor was the staff being very polite and welcoming.

I know this is only a best western plus but for the money you pay it felt awful. No other alternative anywhere unless you pay 3 times as much. Pretty from the outside but all brown on the inside including the bath tub and toilet. Brown carpet ( didn’t want t to walk on it ) , old looking dirty sofa chairs. Bed was comfortable. Very loud air conditioning. It’s probably all about 30/40 years old. We have been told it was redecorated 3 years ago but I truly couldn’t see which bit that was. The absolute worst was the breakfast. The worst I have ever been to. We skipped it after the first morning. Only artificial things. The scrambled egg was like rubber. Never again and the contrast of the amazing scenery and then coming back there was a bit sad.
