Great value for unexpected pleasures
Honestly we went to the cheapest we could find close to where we needed to be and had pretty low expectations but the entire stay we kept commenting to eachother how nice everyone was and how nice the hotel room and pool was. The whole place was so clean and well taken care of. It was such a pleasant experience and made our whole trip that much better!
The breakfast wasn't too great it was wayy more than expected but the quality was low. The waffles we're wonderful though.
Safe and cozy
Food is always the same
The rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff is friendly.
There is very low water pressure, the shower is barely more than a trickle.
Staff very friendly
The staff was very friendly and polite. I checked in around 5 and upon entering my given room, I saw empty water bottles and other items suggesting someone was still in the room. I went back to the front and the young woman was very apologetic and immediately gave me another room. As, I was standing there the manager or owner not sure which came up and asked me if everything was OK. I said yes and told him what I saw but it really wasn't a big deal. He was very apologetic as well and upset that the room was not cleaned as it should have been as there wasn't anyone in that room any longer.
Pro's and Con's
The pool seemed nice (we didnt use it) Room was clean Staff was nice, not overly friendly, but not rude Walls were thin, (early morning seniors like to sit by the pool-where are room was-and talk loudly)
Bed was too firm for me, but not uncomfortable Toiletries were sparse (shampoo, lotion, and soap...no conditioner?) and cheap Fan in the bathroom was broken Continental breakfast was the worst I've ever had
They have an exceptionally good, hot breakfast, starting at 6am! The facility is older, quaint, comfy!
