    Second night of stay, heating didn't work, so needed room heater. No hot water for shower in the morning also. Had no problems the first day of stay.

  • 4.0.Fair

    I had no control over the AC and when I asked the staff about it, they said they hadn’t turned it on and all I could do is turn the heater off. Woke up every night sweating.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Overall pleasant

    I stayed here for a couple of nights because a windstorm knocked my power out. The price was good for the location and the staff was friendly. I was glad that they are pet-friendly but disappointed to be hit with a fee, that was not mentioned when making the reservation, upon check-in. The place was very clean amd comfortable. However, the shower in my room didn't function fully. It ran water through the faucet, too and was very loud. The staff was very friendly and I am sure that it would be a much more warm and pleasant stay if it weren't for corona.

    The hotel was nice and clean, in a quiet area. We had issues with our toliet the next morning and notified front desk right away. The issue was fixed and cleaned up by the time we got back from our planned activities. It was a nice stay.
