The hotel was understaffed- our room was not ready until 5 pm. We amused ourselves with a short hike to the zoo and a stroll around the lake, but it was frustrating nonetheless. Also, there was no hot water in our room. Not too bad for a one-night stay, but would have become a problem soon enough.

It is a hard property to navigate...the amenities (wifi, restaurant) were not working, and the walls are paper thin, which led to a poor night overall.

I liked that it was supposed to be nestled in the woods just did not know that the window to my room was going to be overlooking the patio so had to keep my curtains closed since I did not want people being able to look in my room. The smoke smell from the fireplace was so strong I got a headache that I kept the whole time there. I asked for a roll away bed when I got there, they did not have one. There was not a desk in the room. The toilet in the bathroom moved every time you sat down to go to the bathroom it was so loose. Had to get up at midnight to ask the 3 ladies in the common area to stop talking since people were sleeping. 3 pillows on the bed, not sure why there was not four? Bathroom door was messed up...would not shut correctly..you had to have it closed or fully open so could not leave open a crack at night. You could tell the place is getting old and not being maintained well. I will not stay here again. For $200 a night, breakfast was not included. Not worth it. NOT WHAT I EXPECTED.

You check in at one location and stay at another location, there is no parking space to check in. They had no tv service, no place to hang clothes and no closet. No refrigerator in the room and you can not adjust the temperature. Totally stressful experience.

Thank you for taking the time to write a survey. I will address this with our maintenance department. The park does get packed sometimes making it hard to park so have other locations as well for this inconvenience. Thank you for staying with us and have a great day.
