While located near the Blaine Sports complex, this hotel does see a lot of young people and coaches checking in. However, the hotel is spacious, the rooms are nicely appointed, some suites are larger and give a businessman space to work. A local restaurant sits outside the front door and serves fairly decent meals. Near the hotel are pubs, and there is fast food. It is an easy walk to a few major stores.
Overall, the place was great, the breakfast was hot and well-stocked, and the staff were very pleasant.
This review would have been 5 stars except for the staff neglect/inaction regarding the pool. At 10pm the pool is for adult swim until midnight. At 10:30pm many youngsters came in, ran unsupervised, splashed other adults trying to relax in the hot-tub, but the hotel staff did nothing to maintain the quiet and rule. It made for a very unpleasant pool room. Several adults left when kids started tossing chairs.
