I booked two nights here based upon the glowing recommendations of the other reviewers. However, I left after the first night for other digs. First of all, after reserving a king no smoking, upon arrival I was informed there was only two double beds non smoking available. I settled for that room.

Even after going through several good reviews about this hotel, we still weren't sure if we wanted to stay here or not.
