l was very happy in this place. It made me feel my university days.At the front desk you begin to feel positive. My room key was Shirley McLaine's school I.D. My friend's was Warren Beatty's. You have your very simple bar and restaurant. And a game saloon at the same floor.

First steps inside you're welcomed with fun decorations and kind staff. Everyone that worked there was wonderful. The beds were comfy, the towels fluffy, and the dog decor was a nice bonus (dog person here). I loved the wall paper in the bathroom and the furniture selection.
