4.0/5 Very Good

Guests rated this property 4.1/5 for cleanliness.
We were so happy with our stay! With everything going on, I brought disinfectant wipes to wipe down the high touch areas & let me tell you, my wipes were still white after doing so! The room was extremely clean when we arrived, very impressed. We had lunch at the restaurant outside (great food and fast service) then did the zip line and alpine slide. It was nice to be so close to all of this and head back to the room to refresh before heading into town. I do wish the bar/restaurant was open later than 9pm. We would’ve liked to come back to the restaurant and have some appetizers and drinks after dinner downtown, but that’s just a personal preference. Overall

The view is spectacular for Fall colors! Our room had a perfect view to the Mississippi in all it’s glory! Covid did limit a little but the staff made sure we felt safe by wearing masks and the room was extremely clean. They gave us muffins and fruit for our morning which we had with our coffee while we enjoyed our spectacular view!

It was fine. Not great. Nice view though.
It was fine. The room service was great. The view was beautiful. The room and hotel itself was just mediocre. I’m used to staying in hotels like super 8, best western for $80-100 a night. So to spend and extra $40 I expected the room to knock me off my feet. The bathroom was very outdated, probably from the 80’s. Clean but from the 80’s possibly 90’s. The receptionist area was very bland. Maybe cuz of Covid but I expected more. It was a fine stay. Would I go back? Maybe to ski but not for a nice weathered weekend getaway. I would choose another location for hopes of a better room.
