          A few updates could go a long way here. Room furniture is nice. Updating curtains, wallpaper and bathroom vanity/tile would be great. It was clean and fine. Nothing unpleasant about my stay. Dining on site available but not sure if walkable to downtown dining.More

          The bathrooms need a serious upgrade. The mildew around the shower stall was gross. The doors are wore out. Spa was green and slimy on bottom. Noise doors slamming with youth sports teams staying on all floors.More

          Parking is free. You park in their parking lot. Area is walking distance down town. They also have a shuttle that will go up to certain miles around town.

          What does the pool look like and is there a hot tub???

          There is no hot tub. The pool is a decent sized standard hotel pool. I would guess that it was originally outdoors, but was enclosed several years ago.
