The only slight inconvenience was our room was on the 3rd floor and we did not see an elevator! It was hard carrying all our snow gear up all those stairs!

Hotel was old, room was very small. Bathroom was slightly dirty and in desperate need of updating. The food in the restaurant was pretty poor.
