Heated indoor pool doesn’t seem to work properly. 2nd time in about a month. Only hotel in town with a heated indoor pool which is the only reason we stay. Staff is very friendly, helpful and apologetic but management seems like they don’t care. 1st time the staff told me to talk to the weekend manager the next morning and she acted nonchalant about my disappointment nor my 10 year sons. Today at check out I asked what the pool temp was supposed to be and the friendly front desk girl went to the back to ask who I assume the GM was. She came back and said 86 degrees and it was no where near. I’d guess 70 and I’d did not help that the pool room didn’t have heat. We tried to go before checking out but the pool was being filled with the cold water hose. Very sad when it’s known that my son and I only stay to use the pool for an evening/morning.

The hotel was lovely, but the rooms were a bit run down.

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: Poor breakfast
The hotel lobey and breakfast area were perfectly lovely. The rooms, while nice, were a bit run down. Although the bed was comfortable, it was a little too cushy. The lampshades and walls could use a good cleaning. The bathroom was lovely and bright, but the walls need a new paint job or new wallpaper.

Mountain Hospitality

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants
Cons: accessibility/ease in finding location
This hotel had a friendly staff and was very clean. The only "down side" was accessibilty from the highway (which was a challenge). There was an ample breakfast every morning. A good value for the money!

Nice place to stay

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Nice hotel. Clean with ok breakfast. Nice pool and hot tub area although smallish. It was pretty obvious that I was placed in least desirable room due to discounted rate - horrible view (storage shed) and wheelchair shower - but once I decided a flooded bathroom wasn't my problem - I had great stay (and the maid gave me lots of extra towels). Overall for price, I would stay again - even in same room.
