6/10 Good

Just ok
With this being a hotel in the middle of nowhere it wasn’t awful. Definitely better than the other options in the area. Keep in mind that you are paying for the location - not really a great hotel room. Beds were comfortable, heater worked, and there was hot water so can’t really complain. My biggest complaint is for the smell of the room, it smelled bad and it made our clothes stink too. I’m not sure what the smell was but if you can’t handle weird smells then don’t book this hotel. Other note is to bring food with you or you will have to drive 20 minutes, the restaurant next door doesn’t stick to it’s posted hours.

Overall we enjoyed the room; it was clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed. The little play area for kids was a nice bonus. One minor thins is, our TV remote didn’t work - we couldn’t get it to do anything except turn the TV on & off.

Hotel was nice and clean. I stayed there second times. Actually I booked a room for 4 adults. But somehow my reservation was only 2 adults. There was extra charged for 2 adults. When I checked out and asked receipt. The worker who works front desk he didn’t give me the receipt. He said I can’t give you receipt, you ask expedia (even I didn’t use the expedia). Overall is Ok

Erroneous fees charged :(
I booked the hotel as 1 person since had same price for 1 person vs. 4 persons for the room that sleeps 5. Front desk staff charged me daily fee for 2 persons. $50+ charged for 2 nights. Also, there's a resort fee each night. No amenities are open. Be aware of extra fees.
