I just spent 13 days at this hotel and I can highly recommend. First of all, I got there at night so it was a bit of a challenge to find the front door. Actually though, later on this is a plus, trust me. You also need to know that this hotel as 2 buildings. Unusual, but not a problem. For me, being there in the winter time it didn’t matter that I was up in the main hotel without the outdoor pool. But if you want the pool, be sure to ask for that building. The buildings are all brick with stone accents inside. No, this place isn’t new but it’s unique and CLEAN!
I was on the 3rd floor which is the top in room 301. It’s a larger room than others I noticed, it’s a huge room which was good since I was there almost 2 weeks.
All of the staff are very helpful and most friendly I’ve ever seen. Sweet cleaning ladies, always smiling even though they didn’t speak much english.
I used their exercise room on 2nd floor, elevator was convenient and the stairs were right next to our room. Room had a fridge, microwave, desk, sofa, chair and dresser with great TV options.
Breakfast was excellent and basically the regular fare found at most hotels. Miss Penny was constantly cleaning and was the friendliest person at the hotel. Breakfast choices was easy to make waffles, scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage, gravy, biscuits, juices, cereals, milk, bagels, muffins, yoghurt, cream cheese, boiled eggs, fresh fruit! What more could you ask for?!
Parking at the door and a shopping center next door close enough to walk. Center included Marshall’s, Stein Mart, an excellent deli, Olive Garden and several other stores....right next door!!!
Other shopping was within 5-10 minutes away with easy access. Huge mall included!
Hotel sits back so is very quiet....nothing negative to say about this awesome hideaway.
Try it, you’ll love it too. I forgot to mention that me and my daughter spent Christmas there! less
