We had a great stay here. Room was clean, staff was friendly. The pool was HUGE. The grounds are very nice, it was nice enough weather wise that we were able to sit out on the balcony and enjoy an outdoor lunch. I would definitely recommend this hotel. It's also close to downtown approx. 10 min. drive.
