    Fantastic brand new hotel opened in July, everything is pristine, all amenities are wonderful. Breakfast was great, they had biscuits and gravy, which I thought was great! Everything is new and fresh. Highly recommend this hotel. cB

    Room was not ready

    This is hotel is in a great location and has a nice design. Unfortunately our stay did not start well. Check in is listed as 3. We arrived just before 4 to find our room was not ready and was given no idea how long until it would be. We had driven over 4 hours and needed to get ready for a birthday party. We were told we could not be moved because the hotel was full and that we would just have to wait. 2 hours later we called to see if the room was ready yet. We were told no and that they would call back in 30 minutes and then basically hung up. Over and hour later we got the call that our room was ready. When I finally went to check in, there was no apology. Luckily, the room was clean and the bed was comfy. While I understand there may have been a staffing shortage or an excess of guests, some compassion or heads up that our room would not be ready until 7 would have been appreciated.

    Out of the way oasis

    Wrong address listed on your site. Had to map search by hotel name to find it. Also you should disclose the pet fee in the hotel description somewhere.
