The staff, the property and location, the clean well stocked rooms. The excellent service.
Stayed 1 night in Sep 2020

3/5 Okay

Good stay
The room was satisfactorily clean. Check in was fast. You just sign a few places, report you don’t have dog, credit card hold, done. The online photo of the room is different, but I didn’t notice until I just compared at this moment. If I was focused on the photo I would have noticed there was no fireplace, and the room was smaller because there is no way a bench could have fit next to the entry way bed since that bed was against the wall, and the room pictured just seems a little more updated or maybe just brighter. Breakfast offerings were grab and go. Location was ok. Construction was being done surrounding the location, but not on the location so it didn’t bother me. I sent 3 messages prior to arrival without an answer from the property manager, so extremely poor communication. If we stayed more than the one night I wouldn’t be happy with my stay, but for one night it did its job. Mostly I’m satisfied when I don’t have to share a room with bugs, which is why I chose this property since there were no reports of bugs/rodents.

Good location, though freeway noise. Desk staff were okay. Mask use was strongly enforced. Pool areas needs some maintenance. Room was modern, comfortable and clean.

2/5 Poor

Happy face iconLiked: Staff & service
Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
It needs renovation as the place is old. The border between the sink and counter is moldy and filthy, the bathroom lock didn’t work (neither did the phone), walls/bathroom grout are scratched up, old, etc. The pool had many dead bugs floating in the water. It’s expensive given the condition of the lodge. Good customer service, and despite covid, it still provided some pre-bought wrapped little muffins, pancakes, etc. Nice proximity to the state park.
