The room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The staff was kind and attentive. Breakfast was simple but good (eggs, sausage patty, toast, apple, cereal). We really liked the updated dining area and lobby with comfortable seating and a view of a little lake. We will stay again!

Thank you for your nice review! We really appreciate it! Please stop and see us again the next time you are in the area! And we hope by then we are able to be back to full breakfast standards, as we all know during this pandemic there are many restrictions in place, & we do apologize. Thanks, Ashley D

This is a top-notch place that feels very new and nice. I also appreciated that it's just a few steps from several good restaurants - and a close drive to many additional restaurants and shops.
