Enjoyed a lovely Sunday brunch. The food was quite good with a good selection. No carving station but really didn't have room for all that food. There was an omelet station and several hot dishes including a great salmon and rice dush. The lemon cake was very tasty.

My mother and I recently checked in to our rooms here. Shortly after we checked in, we found out that the relative we were visiting had the flu. We were only planning on staying one night and a snow storm was expected the next morning, so we decided not to stay the night and checked out of the hotel at...

Recently celebrated my sons wedding at Glen Sanders. This facility is top notch.The staff provided nothing but professional service from the night before to the day after the wedding.

I attended a wedding here last weekend and it was truly a fantastic venue. The building is beautiful and so wonderfully decorated for the holiday. The staff made all the guess feel very much at home, and the wedding events went very smoothly. The food was wonderful -- I had the vegetarian option.

Stayed here when attending a wedding at a nearby site. Online photos were nice and the description sounded ok, although it did seem a bit expensive for the region. Mainly, though, we selected it because it was so near the wedding. Our room was ok but was totally lacking in decent amenities, especially for the price being charged. There was...

We were in 110 which proved to be a disaster. The heating system didn't work - we were given a space heater to keep it warm (but didn't help much). The toilet broke (never stopped running) although we told the front desk twice to fix it. On the second night the handle broke so we had to change rooms at...

Hotel was average at best: worn and rusted decor, non-functioning plumbing, extremely slow check-in, less than desirable breakfast. However, the river view is beautiful as is the patio area. I most likely will not stay again. I bumped the review to average for the location and view.

I loved the early review about so much potential. I have been coming here on business for about three years. And I have noticed a very slow decline in overall service and cleanliness.

Overall, enjoyed my daughter's wedding weekend at the Glen Sanders. We did have some trouble with the reservations, which caused me concern from the start. Our room was clean and comfortable; however, the lighting in the bathroom was awful. I had to go to my sister's room to do my make-up and hair. Although my bathroom was updated compared to...
