Little town
The stay was OK. The room is fine. The beds are a little too soft and the bathroom door was unable to close due to some issues with the floor, this was rather unpleasant... If they fix this, I recommend to stay here.

Checked into our ground floor room and it smelled very strongly of mold. They moved us down the street to another lodging. The second room was adequate but bed pillows and comforter smelled. Great location. Need to fix mold issue with Arbor. Overall they were gracious about changing our room.

No dont go.
The place is clean shower works well, however the bed in our room was a disaster and most uncomfortable. A steel frame that creaked and groan (neither my husband nor I are overweight) the mattress one could feel the springs through them... worst couple of nights sleep.
