Stayed two nights and would go back as long as the weather is cool; only because they don't have a/c and I'm always warm. Our room was on the first floor which meant we had a patio that led to the pool and hot tub. It was very relaxing sitting out in the evening. The room amenities were perfect. Blow... More

Nothing fancy but it did the job. Clean, helpful staff, and a free breakfast. A limited breakfast but it was free! The rooms are nice and staff help when they can. There's a pool and jacuzzi so that was nice! Also, there's a patio in every room. A little too pricey for what we got but overall a positive stay.
