We stayed here during the ice storm. We were out of power and looking for a nice place to stay. The Marriott chains in town were $150/night but this place was $80/ night and having stayed here before, we decided to try it. Great choice. I would not say that this is a luxury hotel, but it is so great for a family. The rooms were very clean and had nice toiletries. Towels were fluffy and beds clean and comfortable. Again, not luxury but very nice.
The pool area is well decorated and it is a kidney shaped pool and my son loved it. Also, very big hot tub in an ice storm was great.
The restaurant was probably my favorite. Excellent home made food, with superb service.
There were a few issues, such as some issues with check in. Not sure what the problem was, but there was some tension with the manager and the front desk. We waited a while, but they apologized and the rest of the trip was fine.
I would also prefer duvet covers over the bedspreads, although they were extremely clean, I just prefer that in a hotel bed.
I also noted that the gift shop sold bottled water for 25 cents, which was really appreciated. It is nice not to be overcharged by a hotel.
Highly recommend, especially in the summer combined with a trip to Dutch wonderland. The hotel has a nice lake and play set that we could not use this time.
