The pool was AMAZING, but the room was a mess. It was dirty, the phone didnt work and they wouldn't answer the phone by calling the actual number off a cell phone and the toilet didn't work. I definitely won't be staying again.

Rooms where dated, black mold was on the ceiling in the bathroom, and the bed where every uncomfortable. The tv was fuzzy and didn’t work good. Was very disappointed!

The rooms was decent but in a big need of updating. In the bathroom the ceiling tiles had black mold and other ceiling tiles sagging down allowing water to splash inside of them. Half shower head was missing.

Location is great - 0.5 miles from major attractions. The view from our room window was amazing. Cons - the room needs updating - door to the bathroom is in need of fresh painting, so is balcony.

Dated. Long downhill walk to strip. Longer walk back uphill.

Had a great stay, staff is nice and helpful. Has a very nice pool.

Unique pool, scenic view, and friendly staff made our stay amzing.

After checking in at the front desk we went to our room. Upon walking in we realized it was a smoking room. We are non-smokers so went back to the front desk and requested a different room. Walked into the next room and it had extreme offensive odor of like dirty feet. This room was worse than the first. Went back to the front desk was given a third room but that was only available for the one night as the hotel was sold out the next three nights. We left and found another hotel.

Need to put a time limit on when children can swim and check the pool area at nighttime. Also, have plastic utensils on site

The creek in the back and the location is absolutely perfect!

Creek view and indoor pool were the pros...con would be price of food at poolside Cafe

I loved that it is right next to the mountains. The pool and hot tub were amazing!

Clean quick service room was wxactly whst we wanted

I didn't go. cancelled my reservation, but was charged anyway.

I was very disappointed upon opening the door. There was what looked like black mold on the ceiling of the shower. When preparing to leave we saw a roach.

The suite was awesome with a giant in room jacuzzi , the beautiful pool and natural running spring right behind hotel was amazing walked to log cabin Breakfast. Wonderful price.
