The bed sheets had hair on them. The room smelled horrible. We were supposed to have a non smoking room. It was not. There were burn holes in the carpet. We did not stay and can’t get a refund

Hotel was fine, breakfast was not much, a little fruit and some packages of other food. No place to sit. Only thing wrong with the room was the shower head dribbled almost vertically down and could not be changed. I didn't ask to fix it as I just made do. I got what I paid for. Bed was comfortable. Place was clean and staff nice.

Staff was very nice. Check in and check out process was smooth. Room was clean. The hotel is great for the price! The cats in the lobby are the most friendly and are definitely an added bonus.

Property is nice. We had fun. The area where you can walk dogs needs some cleaning and needs lights so we can safely walk the pets at night. There were elks on the side of the property and that was a great experience. Overall, place is quiet and peaceful.
