          This hotel is consistently good quality, and we've stayed there a few dozen times over the years. From the low-end rooms to the high-end rooms, it's always clean, spacious and has a nice atmosphere all around.

The boys just loved going there for the pancakes. My grand daughters are 3 and 5. Before I mention the history and the pancakes, I want to know if they would be welcomed.
