Nothing unique. The place is old and is stuck in the 50's. Needs a serious update.

With winter still with us,the pipes that supplied water to the suites frooze. Management did all they could do to help the situation. They met my questions and concerns with quick responses. Actually bent over backwards trying to make my stay with them enjoyable and relaxing. I had to change to a different room at the end. Had one problem there, but was resolved in a quick and timely manner. Sometimes in life we do run into things that just do not go right, but when people bend over backwards for you its easy to keep the positivity flowing and have a good time. I thank you Tracy and the rest of the staff!
