Great spot
This hotel was a great spot to stay. Right across the street from the lake. Close to lots of trails for biking or hiking. Within 30 min to several ski resorts. Minutes from shopping and restaurants. It was very clean and comfortable and the staff was super friendly. Overall wonderful experience

Comfortable room.
This was a nice hotel in a tourist area. Most restaurants are walkable and there are many things to do. The room was comfortable although not particularly luxurious. I liked that the room had a ceiling fan. The bathroom is small.

Great hotel, unfortunate surroundings
Check in was amazing. The employee was nice, friendly, informative and helpful. She went above and beyond with suggestions of entertainment, restaurants and even tried to arrange my room away from other guests (she knew I came for relaxation and had “noisy” neighbors, but they didn’t disrupt me at all). Loved the room theme and it was clean/tidy. Only downside, the bed was so hard… on theme though, feeling like you woke up sleeping in a sleeping bag on the ground lol however, bed comfortability is subjective. I didn’t explore the lobby/grounds. If only this hotel were on the other side, I would stay again
