So Nice We Stayed Twice! We roomed here on two separate occasions over the course of a month as we relocated from the Midwest to the West Coast. The hotel is thematically decorated with vintage fishing/ wildlife/ camp furnishings with a twist of Native American motifs and imagery (sometimes problematic). We rented rooms with king beds, both of which were pretty spacious and the beds plush and comfortable. The bathrooms are really cute - sort of 80s/ 90s-themed large fiberglass shower stalls with vintage-feel fixtures. Area was quiet and cosy. Staff was quite pleasant and hospitable. Would definitely recommend.

I love this place. It has outside fire pit, pool, hot tub, good coffee, inside fire place, and the room we got had awesome whirlpool! With the COVID-19 virus going around nothing was open and we stayed in our room. I worked definitely go back. Hopefully the virus clears and life can return to somewhat normal.

the room was clean although noisy; we could hear other showers running clearly; doors slamming early in the morning. The staff though - the staff was absolutely THE BEST!!! The staff stepped up & helped me when Expedia failed to even after I had been on the phone with Expedia for 40 minutes.
