Stayed in one of the nice cabins , with lovely river view . short wlk to town/ action. Everyone at desk was very nice . bed was comfortable , room was clean and nicely appointed . Would definitely return .they even had nice Paya bath products . My only complaint , no shelf or space in shower for soap and shampoo. Also , no hangers in closet for your jacket . And no lids for morning coffee in lobby .

Hotel's Favourite
Spent 4 days in cabin #4 and had a VERY enjoyable experience. These cabins are AMAZING! The wood & tile floors, carpet on the stairs, porch furniture and toilets all appear new. Our cabin had a nice brown leather couch, a couple of comfy chairs and a brown varnished picnic like table all adding to the cozy ambiance of the cabin. Everything was clean, shower, kitchen, floors and even the porch. The bed was comfortable and the loft was large with a sitting area. The steps and front porch areas appear to all have been repaired. No issues with the air conditioning, often just ran one or the other. Plenty of towels & toiletries in both bathrooms. The lattice work on the back porch makes it very private. The staff was VERY friendly and helpful. The location is PERFECT for walking to downtown and enjoying the river. The cottage had everything we needed and would definitely stay here again if we return to the area.

Excelente location within a walking distance from downtown; the room was spacious and clean. The bed was very firm, nice pillows & super soft sheets. They have the river on the back with some swings which was a nice touch. Free light breakfast and friendly staff.

Location was great but the beds are HORRIBLE it was like sleeping on concrete. I will never stay here again we would have been better off staying at the Holiday Inn down the street. I also spoke to other guests and they were also complaining about the beds.

Hello. We are sorry to hear that you were unhappy with the beds. All of our rooms have tempurpedic memory foam beds that came highly recommended. Unfortunately, it is not possible for us to customize beds to each guests individual preference on firmness. We are looking into mattress toppers for the future to increase comfort for guests who find the beds too firm

Planned an impromptu getaway and this place just fit the bill! Great rate, close enough to walk to most things and my little dog could come too!! Room had been remodeled and was very nice! Unfortunately, the commode had not been cleaned...there was urine and what looked to be vomit under the seat. Upon further inspection, there was hair all over the floor in the bathroom area and shower. When I went to the office I was given some cleaner and a rag and the office help, who was very nice, did state she would let the manager know. That was the last I would hear of it. As much as was paid, especially with pet fees, it should have been clean....my little dog doesn't leave urine and vomit....
