nice small town resort feel

Loved that we could walk to shops and restaurants. Room was spacious and outside heated pool was perfect even though it was a little cool outside.

Think Twice

Think twice before booking this hotel, and don't let the online pictures fool you. Their room availability isn't accurate and spa options weren't even accessible. I will never stay at this hotel ever again, nor would I recommend it to my worst enemy.

Espected more for my buck

The room was nice, First thing I noticed was the smell it was odd and old mold smell. I see a humidifier in the room and realize the smell and the comfort. After a while we realized the humidifier wasn't working the water needed to be dumped. So we dumped it. First time I use the "facility" in the room I look over to the right and notice the amount of dust that is on the shelves. :/ Not too thrilled about how clean the shelves were. The powder room as well had some spilled stain that was never maybe cleaned up from the last traveler before me. We got to the hotel late and were leaving to go grab a bite to eat. Walking out the door we see two maintenance men with a replacement humidifier. Instead of knocking on the door they just opened the door!?! The other maintenance man said to his partner "Hey man there are people in there you can't just walk in" So the next morning I woke up and was completely dehydrated from running this humidifier all night. I picked this hotel to relax it was my weekend away since my mother passed and needed the R&R and instead had the issues listed above. Upon check out nobody even asked me how my stay was. I would of told them all of this feedback.

Had a great time !

The hotel was very clean and pretty. The view from the room was beautiful to wake up to every morning. The location of the hotel I also enjoyed. I'm actually considering moving to the area.

Very good value

Loved the room value and spa. Spa was a separate price, but very relaxing. The breakfast food was disappointing. I didn't try lunch or dinner there, but would recommend dining out for breakfast.

Best to eat breakfast at a diner, rather than the hotel. The breakfast at the hotel was nothing special.

Birthday getaway

I took my Fiancé on a birthday overnight and we were disappointed...The upgraded room that we picked at the pool level was damp & had a very slight musty smell. Oh well, we thought...its only one night. But then when I checked out, I told the clerk about it and all I got was a shoulder shrug. Very un-professional. And our smart phone would not work inside the hotel.

Beautiful Patio Rooms

I loved the patio by the pool. It was private like your own little piece of paradise. The resort it not new, but it's got a fresh paint job and the staff were all excellent.
