Great stay! We'll be back!
Beds were comfortable, Codi the clerk was amazingly helpful with details, recommendations and directions for/to local fare. Room was very clean and kept up during our entire 5 day stay. Location was out of the city bustle and central to all of our destinations. Best value luxury.
