We stayed here in early August but I forgot to do a review when we got home until I found my picture on my phone!
We really liked this hotel, great location near the bridge park and short walk to downtown tourist area. The room was clean, bed comfortable and the wine tasting fun.
We went down for the wine tasting and were joined by only one other couple. They had some cheese and cracker and five kinds of wine, plastic cups and it is all self serve. I tried all five wines and found a few I had never tried before and would buy them. The room seats about 14 people and also serves as the breakfast room. We ate breakfast downtown.
While I did not try the pool some other adults were in there just before closing and said in was nice and warm, it looked clean also.
The cat did jump up onto the counter as we checked in but the place did not smell of cats or any signs of cat hair. We were worried about the cat, not being big cat lovers, but this didn't seem to be an issue at all.
It is an older hotel but very well cared for a nicely decorated as we stayed in one of the themed rooms up stairs. Parking was not an issue.
The bathroom (tube/shower and toilet) was small in a small room but was clean and big enough not to be a problem for anyone not in a wheel chair. I think it had a curve shower rod. The sink was outside in the room.
The TV could have been up higher as it was sitting on a table and hard to see from my side of the bed.
We would not hesitate to return to this hotel on future trips. Sorry for such a late review.
