    Needed Stay

    The nest was very comfortable and the staff was amazing. My first night, there were upstair neighbors who were loud until the wee hours of the morning. The staff moved me the very next day to a better position. The rest of my stay was relaxing and all that I needed.

    Go for the Wine

    We had a great stay. The staff was terrific! The outdoor patio with waterfalls and fire display was a highlight, as were the wine tastings they offered on Tuesday-Thursdays.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Only 1 bed per room, says it's good for 3 guests

    We booked this room because the hotel reported to Hotels.com that our room would accommodate 2 adults and one 17-yr-old teenager. Come to find out after check-in that all rooms at this hotel had only one king sized bed. Clearly this is FALSE ADVERTISING; there is no way that two adults and one older teen can sleep in the same bed. Since all rooms had only one bed, we were obliged to rent a 2nd room. Had we known a 2nd room would have been needed, we would not have booked at this hotel. Indeed, on the two prior nights we stayed in other cities at hotels that properly provided two beds for three people, as we dutifully requested. Aside from the major booking error, the hotel would have been fine for two people, but we're unlikely ever to stay here again because the hotel took no responsibility (yet) for their misleading advertising that resulted in us paying 66% more for the night's stay than we had planned and expected.

    A motel level place pretending to be a hotel

    I was disappointed when we arrived the hotel. The hotel is not as advertised. Sure, it has the fireplace and the water fountain, but what the pictures failed to show was that the hotel is CLEARLY a renovation from an old motel. The hallway of the hotel is outdoor facing the parking lot. The only window of the room is also facing the parking lot. There is no privacy at all. I can hear every car pulled into the lot and people talking as they walked out of their cars. The room is extremely small and simple. The entire hotel is updated/ renovated but it does not change the fact that the vanities provided is still at the motel level. Towels are extremely thin, extremely small amount of body wash and shampoo provided, cheap soap that dries your hands, cheap foldable stand for a tiny “coffee machine”. NO FRIDGE NOR MICROWAVE.
