Thanksgiving Stay 2022
Hotel is clean and the rooms have been refreshed. It's an old hotel and some things, like the shower, are just old. The bed was too soft for my liking. Front desk staff was lovely. Wait staff in the restaurant are run off their feet while it seems some management are just standing around. The grounds of the hotel are gorgeous. I wish we had more time to enjoy them.

Chaotic room assignments
We had one night here before we flew back home. While I was able to get my elderly parents into a room at 3:30, my husband and I had to wait until 5:30pm to get into a room, which was super frustrating and disappointing after a long day on the road.
