We stayed there for one night, March 30th. As we brought our stuff up to the room and went to lay down for an hour or so before going out for the night, it seemed pretty loud. There were kids being loud in the hallway and there were lots of slamming doors. It was afternoon, so, not a bid deal. We figured we'd be in for a terrible awakening by kids the next day, but that actually didn't happen.
The King bed was very comfortable and the linens were fresh and pillows were good. It was very comfortable overall. The shades drew tightly down so you could get a good night's rest with only a little bit of light coming in in the morning. There was a back patio which looked over a beautiful landscape behind the hotel. It was great to hear the birds and see that pretty view outside our balcony.
The eggs for breakfast were good and they had bacon, which is always a plus. the bacon was really super thin so it wasn't great, but, it was bacon nonetheless, so we'll leave it at that. The English Muffin seemed like it was a normal, out of the plastic bag muffin and i didn't even finish it, but they also had bagels and regular bread.
We asked if they had any tasting passes and they gave us two, which were both 2 for 1 tastings. A different hotel was able to give us free passes to many of the great wineries, but the HIE didn't have so much of that.
Overall, I wasn't unhappy with anything and would say it's a decent place to stay. I think I'd try to stay somewhere else though just to see what other places have to offer. As a matter of fact I did stay at the Hadsten House, which did have a great list of wineries that you can taste at, but that place wasn't great, so. I wouldn't stay there again, but, you can read my other review on that place.
Overally on HIE, thumbs up.
