Great place to stay!
Clean, comfortable and I really liked the no contact check in and check out system. Even though there was no contact, the staff at the desk was super friendly and kept the place very clean.
Aimee, ca1 night trip
Very good 8.0
Great, pleasant stay.
The room was clean and decorated very nicely. The soaps from Rocky Mountain Soaps were fantastic and we were able to get the same stuff from the local store downtown. The one thing that was very negative is parking. It was difficult to park and navigate around the one-way road around the building even in a small car, especially when larger vehicles slightly blocked the way.
