    First, the staff were excellent. attentive, polite, happy to be working there. Chris at the front desk was very pleasing to deal with. Hotel is very clean, cafe and restaurant on site and plenty of choices offsite, very close by. Room was great, spacious and well equipped. Only thing we could say was the air flow from the central air was constant and made the room feel quite dry, hardly a complaint but more a minor issue. Room was quiet and bed was firm. We will return, looking forward to that as we will have another wedding anniversary in the years to come! Keep up the great job!
