Do not trust Google Maps when getting there - prepare yourself by studying a real map especially when coming from NYC. The location is great, the breakfast is okay. We slept there very nicely. Probably great for golfing.

Big rooms with a view and such a beautiful golf course. The Continental breakfast needs more fresh fruit and more healthier starches; too many pastries with sugary toppings. Other than that the Inn is a great value.

Stayed at The International for a wedding. Overall our experience was horrific. Bugs in the rooms. Staff were rude and condescending; hotel rooms were outdated. This place is still in business because there are very few hotels in the area; if there was competition they would be out of business very quickly. The golf course is the draw; otherwise, the...

Staff couldn't do enough for us--excellent service. The food was very good--ate in restaurant and had catered meals with meetings. Mid-century vibe and ambiance--sort of "Mad-Men". Lots of meeting spaces of various sizes.
