Good 6.0
Hot tub not hot
We have stayed here twice within last 30 days for business. We found the room pleasant and only have two complaints and both times hot tub water temp not hot and not therapeutic. Service in dining room was great but bacon overcooked and potatoes too spicy for breakfast. We did love our room.
