Of course they say never say never, and actually we might consider it in the winter, so I should say "never again in the summer." This property is well maintained even though it was built in the 1950's. The suites are roomy even though we only had a shower and no bathtub, but the outside appearance of the hotel is anything but picturesque as it was built in German style and the building look like my old elementary schools. The staff was very courteous and helpful and the shuttle bus was great. There are two reasons that my husband and I want stay there again in the summer. #1 is no air conditioning. We were there last week (July 2014) and temps were near 90. There are signs in the room indicating you should keep windows open (no-brainer) and South facing shades closed, which we did. We still found it so hot that it was difficult to sleep at night. When we would return from dinner in the evenings we would find the interior of our room warmer than the outside air. We were there to attend an on property business function and my husband indicated all the attendees were complaining about lack of sleep due to the heat. #2 reason not to return in the summer is the swimming pool. It is a 3 lane lap pool and local people with memberships were having to wait their turns to swim laps while children were anxious to get in the pool and couldn't. Speaking of children, noise is another issue when sleeping with windows open. Early in the mornings we would be waken by loud housekeeping or maintenance workers talking outside and later in the day you could always hear families with children just outside your window so it wasn't very peaceful. On the positive side, decor is on the contemporary side and tasteful and as I said, staff is very friendly so maybe a good place for winter travel.
