The staff was very friendly and the included breakfast was great! However, the entire room felt very damp and smelled musty. When I woke up I felt like my allergies had been activated. Simply because of the damp mustiness, I will not return.

We had a overall good experience, we had a room on the 3rd floor to start. Everything was very clean, we had a storm and there was a roof leak and they moved us to a different room that was a "upgraded room" the only issue with the new room was that it smelled musty. The breakfast was not what I expected but was good. Oatmeal was bland but the frittatas were delicious.
