“Very Disappointing”
Reviewed 23 June 2008

We found this place to be way over-priced for the rooms and amenities. We paid $165 plus tax for our room, and to add insult to injury, the hotel charges an extra 4% surcharge for using a credit card. So, the room for two nights was $374.54.

The only thing premium about the room was a jacuzzi, which was decent. I'm not sure why the have the word "suites" in their name, because our premium room certainly was not a suite. It was an average-sized room. The only seating other than the bed was a table/desk with two hard chairs. The bathroom was small and the shower head was designed as hand-held. I had to bend over to get under the spray. The towels were frayed, I have never seen that in any hotel/inn/B&B I've ever stayed in. The toiletries provided were economy-sized bottles of really bad shampoo and body wash. There was a small fridge and microwave, TV, and phone, but no other amenities. The lighting in the room was awful, impossible to put on make-up at the sink.

The included breakfast was similar to what they serve in lower-end chain hotels - cereal, sweet rolls, fruit, coffee, juice. The sweet rolls were from a local bakery and were better than average. We ended up going out for breakfast the second day, it wasn't worth it to mess with the "free" stuff provided. One bright spot was a pretty nice deck/patio area with a couple of gliders and a table with chairs. All of the workers seemed to be pleasant and helpful, but when we were leaving close to check-out time, there was nobody around to help with a few last-minute questions. There is nobody on site in the evening, they provide a phone number if you need anything.

I think we would have been just okay with this experience if we had paid about 1/2 of what we paid. Expectations are higher for one of the most expensive rooms in town, and those expectations were definitely not met. We would not return to this location. The folks we met there for the weekend had the same assessment of their room as we did, and they were in a cheaper room.
