    I liked listening to the music in the Fairgrounds from my room! The pool was good for stretching out my aching muscles after a long day at the music festival. You can hear too many people walking around outside and in the next room.More

    Pool closes at 9 p.m. It is probably open while it rains, but you can call and ask. The pool is not completely indoors. One of the sides is open to an outdoor patio.
