Nice get away. Quiet area. Clean. Room was big. Liked that it had a microwave and mini fridge. Staff professional and friendly. Don’t think we were able to experience all due to COVID 19! Only thing negative was it was hot.

Enjoyed the outdoor spaces with outdoor fire and seating to relax and enjoy the sunset. Rooms are dated and very rough around the edges.

We loved our room! The room and restroom were clean, decor is gorgeous, location is good! I just wasn’t aware of special pool regulations so we did not get to use the pool which was disappointing.

It was great! I just wish more people in the hotel wore masks or even had signs up saying to wear your mask and to maintainability a social distance.
