The setting for the restaurant was beautiful inside and out. The food was excellent! Service was good and very accommodating as I was in a wheelchair.

Hotel is converted house with lots of stairs and uneven floors. Marriott is isn't, but clean and acceptable. We ate at the restaurant on a quiet Wednesday night. I suspect the summer weekends this is a hopping place with lots of outdoor seating and lake...More

If you're a Courtyard by Marriott or Red Roof Inn person, this is not the place for you. It's a fine quality mid-range, all-American road stop, but you might well find a cobweb or two and decor that reflects its owners idiosyncrasies, rather than a...More

We were there for the HOF weekend. I had the lamb chops. There were only 3 and they were incredibly fatty, undercooked and tasteless. I probably was able to shave off 7 or 8 actual bitefuls. The chops were $28 dollars and definitely not worth...More
