    An overall nice clean and cozy hotel. The indoor pool is heated and was not crowded in February even though the rooms were almost full; good for those who do laps for exercise or just relaxing. Tough to beat for the price.More

    Pool closes at 9 p.m. It is probably open while it rains, but you can call and ask. The pool is not completely indoors. One of the sides is open to an outdoor patio.
