This is an older Motor Inn that has been well maintained and on which the owners , with obvious pride, have made improvements and incorporated modern amenities to the extent that the structure will allow.; example - door keys are the most modern with tap and sight recognition, also worked flawlessly. The absolute best feature of this hotel is its location and the scenery it provides, but while i's not a Sheraton, it is immaculately clean, and the beds are most comfortable. The decor is pleasant, though simple. We had a room with a balcony, which was well sheltered with a glass (plexi) enclosure.. Twas a delight to sit there late afternoon with light wine, admiring the scenery, and basking in the quietude. We had dinner in their pub/restaurant and we well pleased with our meals, not an extensive, but varied menu. The atmospher was very pleasant, cordial , and the service truly great. When everyone around you seems happy, chatty and smiling, you know you have be in a good place. And while not a direct link to the hotel, the Highland Village historic park is well worth a stroll through. , we had to rush our visit thru it, but still most rewarding.
It rates a 5 in my books for service, attentiveness of staff, and locality. Due to age, and inherent constraints, the physical property is still a solid 4.
Plan to return , again.
