We understand the traveling public has come to expect more amenities when deciding on their lodging needs. So we are pleased to announce we are under construction of our new seven story tower! The new tower will have 54 new interior guest rooms, spacious lobby, work out room, meeting room, large breakfast area and a Hydro Therapy Spa. We have included renderings of the tower in our photo gallery. Our existing guest room pictures showcased are up to date. We understand the construction phase can be difficult for our guests. Please bear with us while we do our best to update our property to accommodate our guest expectations. We will update our website as construction continues.
