You'll probably think I'm family from this review but I'm just a traveler. This is the best hotel we have ever stayed in. Not super fancy but yet still modern and clean with very friendly staff even late at night.
The highlight is the pet policy. Other so-called "pet-friendly" hotels should look to this property to see how it's done. Simply put there is NO PET FEE, holy cow it's about time!!!!! Nothing makes me madder than some of those outrageous hotels (oh how I wish I could use profanity here.. that is what I think of those other hotels - and not just one word either) that charge $20, $50 or even a higher pet fee and it's always non-refundable, what the heck?!?!? I don't mind leaving a deposit but if my dog has no accident then I should get my deposit back!
Anyhow we arrived very late early am and the gal working was very polite & friendly with a smile. Rooms were clean and had a homey feel.. and yes there were some off-color towels but they were clean, who cares what color they are?! I seen another reviewer here unimpressed by this but what's the big deal?! Rate was also like 50 or 60; I don't know where another reviewer got $100 - we NEVER EVER pay a hundred dollars for a room!
Also the lady at the desk recommended a very good restaurant (Currents).
I give it 10 out of 10 except for one tiny thing... you had to take your dog across the street to go potty, there is no grass anywhere.
Thanks Woodland, I don't know if we'll be back through but just wanted to be sure others visit you.
