    The hotel will contact UPS for packing and shipping arrangements. UPS will come to the hotel, pack & ship your items. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DETAILS AND COSTS!!!

    The Hotel does have a small elevator. This is not a huge hotel and events are scheduled so there will be plenty of time to get to where you need to be with what you need to have with you.


    All rooms have: Flat Screen TV’s, Microwaves, Mini Fridges, and Kurig Coffee Makers, and Free WiFi. Pets OK. Pet charge is $10.00 per day!
