We were so tired when we got in and the staff was so pleasant and accommodating. They even sold me the pillow that I slept on, because I found it so comfortable. They offered directions, and recommendations for dining, as well as providing tickets for a wonderful full breakfast right next door.

Nice rooms, quiet, out of town, but close enough to go into town if you want to. Good restaurant right next door. Not a gourmet restaurant, but better than a Denny's for example. Great selection of breakfast items.
