I loved the location by the river. I parked my car when I arrived and didn't get back in it until I left to come home. I was within walking distance to everything I wanted to do.

LOVED that it’s soooo close to the middle of town...literally a 3 minute walk. Swings next to the river were very nice! Television was a little tricky but we only watched it a few minutes after going to bed. The bed was very firm...I prefer a soft mattress. My husband kinda liked it ....lol... weirdo. Would definitely stay again!
