This review is for a friend who stayed at this location during the recent craft beer festival. While he and his girlfriend were admittedly around bon fires all day during the festival, neither of them are smokers.

This place was fantastic, with an extremely fair price. Staff was very friendly and helpful, and the location was 10 min from everything ! Rooms were clean and stocked with all essentials- could not find a better hotel in the area with such a reasonable price.

Stayed here for a few days to get away from home and work stress. Price was right since we did not spend much time in the room. The room was clean and appeared to have been recently redone. Nice place to end the day at nearly half the price of other hotels in the area.

“Make sure you bring an over the door hanger with you if you have hanging clothes. Ask for room away from top of stairs.”
  • Couldn't even hang clothes on the dresser knobs.
  • Nice big dresser..just no hooks for hanging clothes.
  • Shoots cold water out of the jets...bummer!
  • Chair a little outdated.
  • King room..super comfy bed.
