"Olden Days" charm !
We really enjoyed the hotel, staff, pool, bar & location. The front desk staff, the housekeepers and the bartenders deserve a special thank you! We didn't enjoy the mold in the bathroom & the tiny desk with broken chair. Would definitely stay here again.

Hotel with great pool and service
We stayed in one of the suze suits that offer a separate room with bunk beds for the kids. The kids loved the bunk beds and their room had a dedicated bathroom. The room was pretty dated but in good condition. The lobby and restaurant in the main building has been very nicely renovated and the food + service was great. The pool and patio area is the centerpiece of the hotel and we could easily have spent our whole vacation lounging there and taking advantage of their poolside service. We were there in the offseason (November) and the pool wasn't very busy.

History Only Goes So Far
The hotel has a charming history, but it is getting a little shabby now. The service was friendly, but no housekeeping on a holiday. The room was definitely too small for two beds. I had a faux leather desk chair that was peeling.
