The Good
This hotel was well loved by its guests who left glowing reviews online. They were impressed by virtually everything. The outstanding staff members who continually sought to exceed guest expectations provided a very pleasant and welcoming atmosphere for guests, many of whom planned to return.

Those who spoke of their rooms said they were very spacious and comfortable, spotlessly clean and quiet with very comfortable beds. Many mentioned that the hotel's decor was beautiful and looked brand new.

Breakfast was also very much appreciated for its variety and quality, with another outstanding staff member who catered to guests "making sure everyone had enough to eat". 

Hospitality seemed to abound with free welcome beverages like cold beer for some guests, hot evening soup for others, and other summertime promotions such as "Pancake of the Night" for the month of August. Guests also enjoyed having free hot beverages available all day in the lobby. Some were also treated to a weekly reception with cocktails and appetizers, a welcoming touch which made guests feel honoured.

Guests who commented about the location liked being on the main road, with easy access to the highway and also said there were good restaurants nearby.

One reviewer summed it up well by saying, "This hotel has it all. Great building inside & out, great rooms, so clean, great breakfast, lots of parking spots available, great location close to everything, very quiet and above all, very nice and efficient staff!"

The Bad
There was very little to complain about with so many accommodating and happy staff members around seeking to meet your every need.

There was the odd comment about hearing noise through the hotel room door or from the floor above. 

A couple of guests judged their room to be small, and occasionally guests mentioned that the hotel was lacking a pool.
