Liked: friendly desk clerks, hot tub and pool were very clean. Dislike: general manager not very friendly, sauna closed without warning on the website

The staff was great. Due to the COVID-19 situation, they had a staff member serving the hot food at breakfast, to avoid the guests touching the serving utensils. Internet was slow, and did not allow streaming of videos.

We enjoyed our stay. It was clean, the pool was great. Breakfast also had plenty of options for everyone.

Beautiful hotel! Our room had lots of space and a nice chair and ottoman to sit and put my feet up. Very clean.

This was the loudest hotel we have ever stayed in. There were dogs barking, children running up and down the halls past 11:00pm and a large group of people in their early 20's drinking and being obnoxious in the lobby very late. Breakfast was marginal. The gym was nice for a hotel gym. I was called by the hotel after we left because they couldn't figure out how to bill Orbitz and wanted a phone number.

Not the cheapest lodging, but it did not disappoint.

When checking in and checking out the single person staff was on the phone and iqnored the quests. When other staff arrived they told us just to wait!! We gave up and left. Staff was rude.

The location is right off the highway near local amenities and access to any direction you need to go. Room was perfect and a delight. Nice pool and the temp was not too cold to want to go in it! Super place to get the grime off and explore the area for rocks and history like we did.

Met up with friends who were visiting the local college and this was a good central location for all of us to stay. The hotel staff were very professional and the rooms were well kept. The only issue we may have had with the room was that even though it was non-smoking we could smell stale smoke as if at one time it was a smoking room.

Hotel was clean and there were healthy selections available for breakfast but there was a very strong smell of smoke in the room advertised as a non-smoking room. Fortunately it was cool and it was possible to open the window for some fresh air.

The hotel was clean and well run. Breakfast was good. The server for breakfast worked very hard to see that there was enough food. The pool and hot tub very very relaxing. We did not have time to try the exercise room.

The hotel location wasn't very good but wasn't very bad either. Everything else was really nice.

We needed a place to stay near the airport because we flew in at 11:30 p.m. and did not want to drive to Ontanagon in the middle of the night.
