Great location, clean and comfortable.

Great Location, but overpriced for what it is
Loud and overpriced. For over $450 a night, I expect more than an old motel that's been tarted up to be a "boutique". Paper thin walls and a tiny bathroom show its history, and are disappointing at this premium price. The wine reception (part of how they justify the resort fee) consists of small pours of $15 grocery store wine, so no extra credit there. Location is excellent, beds acceptable, sheets a B-. At $250 or less, I'd have been happy - if you're paying more, I'd regretfully suggest travelers look further and not repeat my mistake by staying here

Great accomodations!
Such a comfortable cozy place. Had it not been for road construction at the corner it would have been perfect. I would definately stay here again.

We booked a room at a price of $279.86 per night, we got was the cheapest room they offer. At the price we should've been in one of the upper tear loging when I asked as we were checking whats were I was told they are always changing. We were RIPPED off.
