Very nice hotel with excellent staff. I was upgraded to a larger room and had a wonderful nights rest for my conference the next day. The staff was extremely friendly and I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a hassle free stay. Thank you!

Thank you for allowing the GSPCA to hold their Specialty dog show on your premises. Your venue is a prefect fit. Your staff was very accommodating and courteous. The on site restaurant is excellent and reasonable. Thank you for the privilege of allowing us to stay.

My car club has been using this property for over five years. While the hotel is a 20 minute drive to the show field, the staff and facilities makes you feel like home. It is more than worth the extra drive time.

I stayed here four nights during a meeting. The rooms were large and clean. The beds were very comfortable. Everything was in working order. Everyone on the staff, from the receptionists to the cleaners, were friendly and helpful. I highly recommend the hotel.

This hotel has the best staff I have seen in years, from the front desk to the maintenance staff and everyone in-between!

As soon as we walked in the door we were greeted at the front desk with a smile and great service. The lobby is very nice with a comfortable feeling. Really felt like a 4 or 5 star hotel instead of a 3 star. We also got a great deal via Hotel.com with average of $100 a night. Every day...
