A Pleasant Stay
March 07, 2014

This is the second year we've had a January reservation there. Rooms are clean and up to date but rooms in the older wing don't get enough heat. Rooms in the newer wing are larger, brighter. Hot water can also be a problem.

It was however in the midst of the Article Vortex ordeal so I guess a little cold is expected. The owner did give me a space heater and in a couple of hours the room was... more
