My wife and I stayed here for over two weeks while doing business in Hastings. We stayed in the penthouse condo during our visit. The atrium allows sitting "outside" watching the thunderstorms and sunsets up among the oak trees. The owner/operators are quite pleasant and accommodating. We recommend staying here for extended visits. It beats anything for 50 miles around in comfort and value.
