Nice but not great. Was a quaint place but the layout of the hotel is very strange. Rooms were nice but not great. Stayed here on a biz trip and it will do fine for a quick trip. Just don't have high expectations.

Had a Family Wedding at the hotel, and went for the higher class rooms, cute large, balcony rooms, which were very reasonable for this hotel as well as the perks, fantastic breakfasts, great swimming pool, and also complimentary pick up at airport both arrival and departure. There was also free wifi with two desks,computers.
