I am sorry that you were inconvenienced by the layout of our parking lot. We have made requests in the past to be able to alter it but due to drainage concerns for the surrounding properties we have not been allowed to do so. I hope that the other aspects of your stay were great and that you will come and see us again.

They are in a small town yet this hotel was very nice and clean. There is no restaurants open late near this hotel so eat before you go. Breakfast was excellent.

Nice place to celebrate

I was skeptical about the place, but it exceeded my expectations. I use it to celebrate my anniversary and I wish I could stay longer. Super clean, comfortable , quiet, romantic. I love it. The only negative thing was that our room did not have shower curtains but everything was great. I definitely use this place in the future.
