We are so glad that you enjoyed our lunch buffet. The fried chicken is a local favorite. We make our salads in house, and like to have a wide selection of veggies. We hope you come back again!

The rooms were small, but clean. Very basic, no frills, but the service was great. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The wine bar off of the lobby area was nice. Very cozy little hotel.

A couple blocks from the Amtrak station, this clean older hotel lives on exemplifying what many medium size towns once had. In addition, there is a great family restaurant adjacent to the lobby. Very competitive rates.
