This hotel was much better than I expected. It is currently undergoing some renovations, but they didn't impact our stay. The decor of the main hotel is dated, but the rooms are modern (and include a refrigerator). The buffet breakfast was good and the service from Darlene was great. In fact, our experiences with all hotel staff were excellent.
