Highs & Lows

  • Great location!

  • Good sized rooms and comfortable bed and pillows.

  • Spacious room, comfy bed.

  • Thoughtful design.

  • Nearby grocery store.

  • Lots of restaurants and bars in the area.

  • When the f&b offerings had to close early due to Covid regulations, we were able to bring our own food and drink!

  • We were there when the food and drink offerings were limited on Sundays due to Covid restrictions, but now everything's open from 8 a.m. - 9 p.m.
