                    The inside of the room was updated. The staff were very nice and went oUt of their way to be helpful.

                    The exterior needs to be updated to reflect the quality of the staff and interior areas.

                    Went to an equestrian event , selections for the world equatrian events .I came into the hotel at night and it was very dark . It looked very intimidating . However I liked it. The hotel was clean and the bad was very comfortable .I felt safe and I was alone .

                    6.6

                    Was nice decent hotel. With Hi-Speed internet and TV with clean beds and bathroom it provided just what we needed.

                  • Family with children
                    4.2

                    Location was where we wanted to be

                    Overpriced and misleading write up for actual hotel. A motel at best description.
