Fantastic stay, amazing room, birthday treats left in the room, comfortable bed (pillows are less comfortable), spacious, decent shower. The staff are amazing, so friendly and accommodating! Shout out to Jen in the Dockside restaurant for giving top tier service and really adding to our dinner enjoyment!

What a treat! We were treated so well. The room was lovely, clean. Perfect location for getting around. Staff treated us royally and we were met with Birthday treats in our room and card. The couple that maintained our room was so helpful and friendly. The dockside offered up a fabulous meal! You can’t go wrong here.
