We stayed for a few days over Thanksgiving while visiting family in the area. We walked in to find a sign staring my husband was the "guest of the day." We were upgraded to a suite, received a few snacks, and 2 bottles of water. May not seem like too much but after a ten hour drive with two kids,...

Good one night stay It was clean, quiet and convenient. The only 2 things that bothered me were 1.

We held a 90th birthday party for my wife's aunt and the staff at the hotel was terrific! In addition, we probably had a total of 10 rooms and everyone was happy with the accommodations! The morning breakfast (which is free) was awesome. We will stay here again the next time we are in the area.

Stayed here for two nights to visit the Renaissance Festival. Reserved a king room which was pleasantly large with a two seat sofa, desk and chair, and large flat screen TV.
