I did not like that we had a window in our room that looked into what looked like a storage room. And the light remained on in the storage room all night! Very disappointing. There was also a sock from previous guest that was left on the chair behind a pillow.

It’s a very clean and professional property however the beds SUCKED. Hard as a rock. The restaurant however was very professional and AMAZING. Highly recommend the bread pudding with bacon. Bartender was professional and took great care of his customers. Only thing that needed to Improve was the bed.

You can hear everything that's going on in other rooms. Extremely noisy. Will NOT stay here again.

Pleasant stay. No issues or complaints. Received an accessible king room instead of a king room because none were available.
