I am really, really, really excited. I didn't actually belive I could win anything ever. Super grateful for Life on 3rd. My stay was satisfactory and this is just super enthralling.
- Kristina Nichol

The room was clean and the staff was lovely. I'd book it again and probably will in the future.

Parking is a major problem , otherwise it is a great place with friendly staff.
