    Check in was fast and without problems. Room was nice sized and comfortable. Wifi worked with no glitches. Pool is outdoors--not able to take advantage of it because very windy conditions when we were there. Reasonably priced.

    It's nice to hear your stay was a good experience except for the weather conditions. We hope you will come back next spring to enjoy the outdoor pool.

    The room was great! The gentleman that helped to check me in was a character. He had a great attitude! He was having a rough shift, but was not letting it get him down! Will plan to stay again. Always great service.
