Great room. Fireplace was nice on a soggy May weekend. Was disappointed that the pool/hot tub wasn’t open for individual cohort bookings - they were drained of water. Takeout dinner from the restaurant was delicious. Especially the Greek salad!

I like the location and the look of the hotel. I did not like limited parking spaces, vehicles are jammed packed in a tiny parking lot. I did not like the hide a bed. It was the worst bed I have ever been on. We have slept on a lot of pull outs and this one was the worse by far! We got a cot so one kid can sleep on the cot and one just on the couch itself not pulled out.

Nice and clean, room wasn’t too small and crowded. Restaurant was just okay, some of the dishes I feel like I could’ve made it better myself but there were some good meals too. Overall a good place to stay
