I checked in for a 1 night stay while passing through for work. The staff were amazing, there was a rodeo in town so they moved my room to the other side of the property to ensure I wasn't disturbed by noise from the pub across the street. The room was super clean and fresh and very comfortable. Thanks for a lovely stay :)
