The Front Desk Staff was nice and professional. Extremely old layout and Property. The Elevator was not working and the layout is a maze when trying to find your room. One huge plus is that it has a Restaurant and Lounge inside. They give you a coupon for breakfast, it is not provided with your stay. Wifi is very iffy....

Pleasant accommodation with restaurant and bar. The restaurant is Indian but serve other food on request. Indian food is of a high standard. Also good choice for breakfast. Breakfast not included in price but various options to suit all at a range of prices.

Very pleasant hotel. Friendly staff. Enjoyed our stay. Thanksgiving with family and we spent the night here to relieve the crowding a bit. So we didn't have dinner here but we would have liked to. We love Indian food and the restaurant in the hotel looked great.

Shower was in poor condition, no curtain, no soap, ceiling had a water leak, toilet barely flushed. Overall mediocre quality in the room. Would not stay at this hotel again. Location off the interstate is not ideal

We stayed here several times in the past due to the convenient location. The setting is beautiful but the rooms have deteriorated since we stayed there last year.
