Over rated, more motel quality
Pros: Definitely more a motel than hotel. Rooms are getting tired, but are clean and tidy, but comfortable. When I first booked, I expected much more, but we have enjoyed the stay.
Cons: Pricy for an average motel. Star rating is definitely misleading. Small rooms that needs a bit of a refresh.

Great inn ruined by neglectful...
Pros: The bathroom was one of the best-appointed bathrooms we have experienced. The units were quiet and comfortable
Cons: 1. Receptionist gave us the wrong directions to the local restaurant. Based on the information, we tried to walk to the restaurant but it was way too far to walk. We got very cold walking in the wind. 2. The TV was inoperable when we tried to use it. Staff had to locate the cable sensor to get it working. 3. We went to breakfast in the Inn at 9 am, but couldn't get served because the staff was cooking and serving waffles to a number of hired hands through the back door. The guests were served last!

Pros: Love the grounds and landscaping. Amenities everywhere. Staff is exceptional.
Cons: I know this sounds weird but the water has an unpleasant smell in the showers and faucets. This same water is filtered and used at the restaurant. It tasted terrible. I was not the only one to notice and comment.

Spotless, stylish and fun!
Pros: Comfy beds, exceptionally clean.
Cons: Breakast not included. Coffee in lobby, but a light fare would have been nice.
