For a small town, this hotel has a big-time feel. Clearly it's an event venue although that's not why we were there. Food was above average, and staff's attitude was extremely helpful, right up there with five-star locations as far as service and consideration.

Nice hotel but needs some updating. Carpets in room were stained and toilet kept running making it difficult to flush properly. Pillows were flimsy but bed was comfy and room was over all clean.
