    We booked this property last minute and we’re so happy we did! The hotel is only about 6 months old so everything was brand new. We stayed in the three level room which was so unique. It had the kitchen area and bathroom on the first level, then the living space and the third level was a loft bed. Short drive to the zoo and had so many great restaurants right outside the doors of the hotel. Staff was great as well. Would recommend!!

      While the property manager was nice and professional, the property left a lot to be desired. There was no seating inside the hotel/loft. The clock, and TV we're on the counter in the kitchen and far out of sight of the bedrooms where they would have been more useful. There was an overwhelming smell of wood throughout the loft and felt like an unfished tree house. The space didn't seem child friendly even though it was a family loft. The bathroom offered practically no privacy as it was in the center of the loft, had opening in the ceiling that allowed visibility to anyone in the bedroom atop it and the door was "locked" by a magnet that was more trendy than functional. Overall it was not a space that I would recommend to a family with small and/or active children.

      Very different kind of hotel that provided a small kitchen with microwave, fridge, and coffee pot for an affordable price! It has a nice window view of the beautiful town and the owner made sure we were comfortable and had everything that we needed! I would definitely come back!
