"Very nice hotel with excellent service at the desk"
Great service at the desk, cordial cleaning staff. very nice room. The only complaint was the heavy traffic in the room above. It was nonstop stomping back and forth both nights. I'm a heavy gentleman but whoever was above me should have been placed on the ground floor. Yikes! I hope to stay at the hotel again but will request a 3rd floor room in order to eliminate the fear of the ceiling crashing in on me.
Uncovering the entrance behind the other hotel and the Machine Shed Restaurant was awkward but I eventually got to the hotel
Driving across country is no easy task- so when it's time to rest up, you want a good, clean, comfortable hotel. This hotel was all of the above. We didn't get a chance to use the pool but it looked nice. The breakfast was good. The best hotel we've stayed at during our trip.
We chose the hotel for location and because they had wifi. We could not use the wifi for our stay at all. We could sign on, but that took forever and by the time we got in, we would get kicked off immediately. If you absolutely need wifi, I would call and see if they have this issue resolved before booking.
