Traveled with family
Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
There is only one restaurant on the premise and they charged an arm and a leg. Hot springs was nice but there were lots of people. Guest was told to shower first before going to the hot springs but there was nobody enforce it and obviously nobody did. Hotel room was old. I stayed for 2 nights and there was nothing much to do except hiking. Cabins and beds are old. No house keeping service and I saw the sign when I checked out that housing keeping service is upon request. I would recommend no more than 1 night. The ice museum is nice but it's small.

The property is very quiet and rustic. The hot springs was kind of slimy and stinky of sulfur but the water was very warm which felt great. The rooms were nice but the hallway to the room was like a sauna. Not many food options so be sure to take snacks.

The only good thing about this property is the hot springs. Rooms are extremely small. Bathrooms are not cleaned well and really small. Yellowing sink and shower. Even the public restrooms are filthy. The lockers and showers for hot springs are decent. Don't stay here if you can avoid it

The facilities are old, the water smells like iron, and the wi-fi in the Fox room is very weak so we can only do email.

Hot Room and Kleenex for Toilet Paper
I enjoy the Hot Springs but don't need to boil away while I sleep. The hotel room was so hot I almost couldn't bare it; and temperature control in my unit did not do anything to control the heat. I tried with all my might to open a window but they were locked down (or frozen). I called, and called, and called the front desk from my room. It rang, and rang, and rang. No answer. I sweat it out for the night. Next evening, the one roll of toilet paper they so generously left us to use was gone and I sent my son to get another. Front desk told him they had none; it was all locked up with housekeeping for the night. I was angry. I called, and called, and called the front desk from my room. It rang, and rang, and rang. No answer. Thankfully we found a Kleenex box.
