"Spring Break 2015"
April 2015
I was pleasantly surprised with the hotel. It was clean, and the staff were amazing. Had some issues with our keys but the front desk was there to help. Loved the nightly popcorn. Disppointed that the outside pool was not heated because the inside pool was packed with young kids and our older kids could not enjoy the pool or hot tub.

Tip: Spring Break is super busy and you will need extra time to get around. Hotel is close enough to walk to get food.

"Wonderful Place!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

We stayed here last week and had a marvelous experience. Very friendly staff, comfortable beds and very quiet. There are balconies overlooking the river with all manners of various birds. That combined with the sounds of the river makes you almost forget you are staying just off the main parkway. Whenever we walked in the hallways of the building a member of their staff seemed to be cleaning and sanitizing the commonly used areas. Very good breakfast also. I honestly cannot think of anything even slightly negative to say about our stay. We had a wonderful stay and look forward to staying here again.

We loved our stay at the Inn. It has recently been renovated. had a balcony that overlooked the river and a great breakfast. Our room was clean and when out on the patio, it felt like we were in the woods. Great place to stay, Josh was nice. Breakfast was awesome, outdoor seating area!

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend trip and we will be back!! It’s clean, the staff is wonderful, the breakfast is hot, beds are comfortable. The only reasons why I did not give this a perfect review is because our Air Unit in the room made an awful rattling sound making it hard to sleep. We would stay here again for sure!

"One night stay"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed July 31, 2020 NEW
We arrived earlier to the town than expected, so we booked a one night stay while we waited for our cabin. We couldn’t have been happier. I was walking distance to many restaurants which was a plus after a long drive. Kid’s enjoyed the pool that stayed open till 11pm. The breakfast was great especially the biscuits and gravy. Most importantly the rooms were clean and the staff was extremely friendly and welcoming
