    Is there a restaurant on site that serves dinner?

    No restaurant on site. But many are within ten minutes. They do have free continental breakfast from 7-9:30 daily.

    I can't speak for the hotel, but it's low season so I would think availability would not be a problem. We were in a nonsmoking room by choice.
