      :)

      We had a lovely stay! The breakfast was a bit sparse, but this is probably given COVID restrictions. They charged $10 per night pet fee, which was super reasonable, and had a big yard overlooking the river to walk the dog around on. We really enjoyed our time.

    • 2.0.Poor

      Apparently only part of the hotel is pet friendly. They put us on the second floor and when we went to walk our dog the next morning we were told that she was not allowed and we had to leave her at our families house for the rest of our stay. We are very understanding of the importance of masks. Our room was right next to the exit and there was one time my boyfriend did not wear a mask to go out side (meaning he did not have one to come back to the room.) A male worker not only rudely pointed it out to him as he was leaving as well as when he came back in, but also felt a need to call me in the room to rudely inform me of my boyfriend’s mistake.

    • 8.0.Very good

      weak or unstable wifi - otherwise very enjoyable

      floors creak (as though old wood beneath). sounds of walking, running, or heavy steps transmit easily. more problematic was inconsistent wifi, that repeatedly disconnects. i need to think twice about depending on this hotel's wifi if i am here for business and online meetings. too risky.

      Seemed my stay coincided with several lead foot guests. Who ran and jumped around for too long. Sounds travels through the creaky floors even though they Are carpeted.
