I stay here whenever I visit relatives. I like the fact that it is quiet, very dog friendly and isn't priced bad. I usually book a red-eye special, which is a late night check-in. They are slowly renovating rooms. This last time I did get an older room. The carpets were old, the wall paper was peeling in places and the bathroom could use a little love. However, there are times I have had a nicer room.
When I travel with my dog they always give me a ground floor room where he can walk out the sliding glass door to the grass. Sometimes other dogs are out as well and they can play for a bit. I usually do a walk around the golf course and sometimes the fields with him. If I had to rate on dog friendliness, I would say an easy 5 stars. That means more to me than having updated décor.
The Sunday brunch is delicious! (You can sit outside with your dog and eat.) It is a separate cost, but it is reasonably priced. It is served buffet style. The free breakfast is served in a Hospitality Suite. It is very, very basic. There is a TV in the breakfast room and they provide newspapers. I usually get my food and head outside to eat with my dog. They have little benches and picnic tables outside the rooms. The weather is great off season, and it is nice to sit outside in the evening.
Here's the thing. It is an older resort. It is in a small town where things aren't what you would expect in a city. I would say it is quaint, not grand. I've visited this area my whole life, so I know not too expect too much. However, I have never felt unsafe or ripped off when I stay here. The price matches the cost. We even slept on the ground floor with the sliding glass door open. (It has a screen.) The next time I visit overnight, I'll stay here again. The staff is friendly, it is away from any noise, and my dog loves it. That's good enough for me at the price they charge.
