Clean comfortable. Front desk was very courteous and friendly. Continental breakfast was mediocre, but over all good stay for the cost

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 28 December 2016

This hotel was very close to a 4 star accommodation for a very reasonable price. Spotlessly clean, very quiet, with beautiful new beds and furnishings and more channels than you could hope to watch on television all at a very fair price.

Stayed in a Big Clean Room on first the first floor, no indoor hallways kept noise down. Great barrier free Shower. small fridge in room. Breakfast was just ok, but hey, it's free. Location is close enought to downtown, wineries and mountain bike trails. Easy check in, check out. Courteous staff.

We had the pleasure of staying in the room directly across from housekeeping. First thing in the morning they are swearing at each other and talking about all the "a-hole" customers staying. Maybe they should spend more like cleaning since our room was nothing special and had hair everywhere. I will NEVER stay at this location again.

When checking in I indicated that I wanted to pay cash, but was more than willing to provide a credit card per usual practice, so long as it was not charged. I was told that this was not possible, and that I had to pay by credit card. I once again indicated that I wanted to pay cash. The staff...

“Make sure you bring an over the door hanger with you if you have hanging clothes. Ask for room away from top of stairs.”
  • Couldn't even hang clothes on the dresser knobs.
  • Nice big dresser..just no hooks for hanging clothes.
  • Shoots cold water out of the jets...bummer!
  • Chair a little outdated.
  • King room..super comfy bed.
