Dirthy coffee pot

The room was clean and orginized. On teh other hand, the coffee maker was horrific. They have not cleaned the coffee maker. There were a film of bacterian and other things in the water tank of coffee maker. Never make coffe in this place.

Hard bed, Great water pressure.

the hotel had been closed for a week, so no heat, very small heater in room, took hours to warm up enough. bed was very firm, not comfortable at all. Best water pressure in any hotel ever! so at least we got great showers to take the sting out of the cold hard bed. Price was great, not much restaurant choices nearby, had to travel too far just to eat breakfast!

Great location and room

I usually judge a motel by the cleanliness of the bathroom. This place was really spotless! The people were really nice. They had a pool and a firepit at night. And it was very conveniently located for what we wanted to do!

okay hotel for 1 night

Stay overall was only okay. Owners fairly nice, but room overlooked pool. Not ideal as the owners grandchildren were occupying the pool all day & since there weren't many guests you get the feeling they are watching you. .

awesome Family getaway!!

This hotel was in great condition. We loved that we were able to sit back relax and have a campfire and the kids were so excited to have smores.. There are grills so that you are able to cook out which was very nice. The pool was nice and the owners are very nice and friendly. We will be going back next year.

Good value

Great staff, great room but... Extra cost on booking for using online booking, Advertising hairdrier in room be we needed to ask at the front desk, Continental breakfast with only bagel, toast and coffee. No cereal, no fruit, no nothing else.

clean hotel, nice staff

Spent one night here as we were doing the cog railroad early the next morning. The hotel was nothing fancy but the rooms were clean and the staff was very friendly, helpful and accomodating. FYIs: 1) there are only 2 restaurants in town, 2)no hair dryer in the room and 3) it is about a 1/2 hour drive to get to the cog.
