    The location is convenient and it's not overly pricey. However, I had the worst shower I've had in a long time and that's why the low rating. It was either skin scalding hot or ice cold. There was no happy medium.

    Just checked in with a 6 year old shepherd. The room is great with drive up access. The room has a fridge and microwave. There is also a trail right next to the hotel which is suiting to let the dog run.
