      Loved the stay!

      This was a nice stay. They brought breakfast to your door in the morning so that you still had it with COVID standards in place. Staff very polite. They had a text service for when arriving early to let you know when your room was ready. Quaint space with home feeling.

      Weekend getaway

      I planned a weekend getaway with my daughter, but brought my grandmother with as well. We didn’t know about the rocket launch until 2 days beforehand, but the hotel was very accommodating! They switched my room from second floor to first floor. All of the staff were friendly, the room was clean and cozy, and the hotel was in a perfect location for my stay! I definitely recommend them to anyone.

      Bed is just too hard.

      NIce room. Nice area. Great service. Wonderful homemade cookies were just one treat in the continental style breakfast bag that was given to us each morning. Nice breakfast during Covid. Only problem was the hard bed. I would not stay again because of it.

      The Refuge is close to the wildlife Refuge and easy access to town and restaurants. It is nestled into some trees and has a quaintness about it. I liked that it is family owned.

      It was in a good location, with some trees, and not just surrounded by an ugly parking lot. While still is a convenient location.

      Wonderful place to stay

      The staff was very friendly and made the check-in process a breeze. Changes implemented due to COVID were thoroughly explained. The room was clean, beautifully decorated, and had everything we needed. Although the breakfast bar was closed, bagged breakfast consisting of apples, yogurt, mini scones, juice, coffee, and tea was delivered to us daily. Fresh towels, linens, and toiletries were delivered whenever we needed them. The heated indoor pool was a nice bonus. There are plenty of places to eat and convenience stores within walking distance and entrance to the national park is a hop, skip, and jump away. Will definitely stay here again.
