3/5 Okay

This is certainly a basic place to stay. It wasn’t very clean in the room with mildew in one of the corners by the tub, the bathroom floor under the sink area hadn’t been touched in a long time (build up of dirt on the floor) and the tub had not been scrubbed out in a very long time (dirt/soap residue on the tub walls) which was a bummer bcz the room had a jetted tub and I could’ve used getting in there but I was too skeptical of how clean in side of the jets were if the tub was not scrubbed out. Also the bathroom door was about off its hinges and the bathroom was also missing a light fixture. We were in a room above the office and the road noise was also a lot all night long. There wasn’t breakfast here as they said it was due to COVID but no other precautions were taken - so they probably just didn’t want to any longer.

This lodge was very nice to stay at. When we walked in it smelled fresh and everything looked very clean. The bedding was very tidy and there were plenty of amenities. Good location and close to everything. The only problem we had were the other neighbors leaving beer bottles under our truck tire.
