We stayed on Memorial day weekend. We normally choose a resort outside of town, but since there were several of us, we decided to stay close to town. From entering the place, I knew it was going to be a good stay. The receptionist was nice, but she did not let us check-in until 3pm.
We ended up having a few drinks in one of the bars that is in the property of the hotel.
Our room was great and roomy and the A/C worked well. It was a big dark for my taste (not a lot of natural sunlight), but we didn't really spend time in the room (see pictures).
The hotel property is well kept and it was clean. It is a small hotel, so you lose a lot of what you might expect from a larger property. There's no gym or pool cocktail service.
Parking is limited in the actual hotel parking lot, but there is parking across the street. Luckily, we found a spot every night we came back, although we did have to sit and wait for someone to leave.
The hotel charges you a "resort fee" this is not a resort and what you get does not justify the $20 dollars. The wi-fi signal is weak in the room, it only worked well in the pool area which is in the middle of the property. I did not see a continental breakfast, just one type of pastry and coffee. Perhaps, it was served in a different room, but I did not care to ask. They do have a lot of bicycles in case you want to bike ride, that's part of the "resort fee".
The consensus. We enjoyed our stay and I think that the property is well kept, I felt safe and the rate you pay you can't really beat . Would I return? Not sure..... it didn't leave a memorable "ah-ha!" experience for us and several of our friends felt the same. It was just OK in my opinion, which is not to say that it was negative.
What type of guest should you expect? We saw mid 30's upscale couples. I would qualify this place as an 'adults" retreat for a weekend.
