      Very nice old hotel. Great location, very accessible to many area attractions. I’d hoped for a jacuzzi but probably didn’t exist when hotel was built.

      Historic. Great pool. Needs a hot tub. Old. Repairs needed. Loads of stairs

      The pool is a big draw and the room was adequate. A fridge was not provided and should have been included.
