“Steer clear - for the money, there are nicer places around”
Reviewed 3 May 2011

I should have known something was amiss when the owner's 10 year-old daughter took my reservation, and botched the details...
The mattress was like a slab of concrete, but perhaps the biggest bummer was the shower. One of the highlights of my work day is a hot, robust shower - the one in my room was anything but. The water more or less trickled out, and alternated on its own between scalding hot and ice cold. I stood there, head lathered in shampoo, for a few minutes waiting for the hot water to come back on...

The wifi signal was sporadic, when I did receive it in my room it was weak and slow.

The room was pretty clean, but for the money (it wasn't cheap), I'd defiinitely look elsewhere.

Not sure what details were botched but our daughter does a great job with reservations. It is all part of our friendly family atmosphere. We teach excellence in hospitality to our kids and attention to detail.

Mattresses are being replaced and the water problem is being addressed.

There are two rooms that have had trouble with the wifi signal but we are upgrading the entire network to offer better coverage and higher speed.
