I especially appreciated Brandee at the desk. She was helpful over the phone and again when we checked in. She encouraged us to pick up our food and come back to hotel to eat in the lobby as outside conditions were so smokey. Very friendly and welcoming.

Disliked: Amenities
Paid a lot of money to stay every time I was in the lobby I heard complaints from others with only a I’m so sorry that gets old after while. We had just a couple of issues that we weren’t happy about. Water for the shower barely came out seriously it just trickled out and to top that they requested for us to only take a 5 minute shower. Only had decaf coffee in our room. Two days before we left they started to use only half the amount of coffee in the lounge because they were running out so the coffee was weak and tasted like water. The food they made at their make shift restaurant because of California’s COVID policies and not very good and definitely not worth it so we microwaved are breakfast and dinners… lots of fun not really did I forget to tell you that we’re on vacation. Best thing the park and canyon are breathtaking.
