Both the front desk staff and restaurant/ bar staff were generally unpleasant. Not one person smiled at us. Floor of the room was dirty, actual dirt and dead bugs along the floor board by the door and sink. Mattress was very uncomfortable, like sleeping on a box spring!

Great place to stay when snowmobiling. Hot tub, bar restaurant and large room with windows to watch sleds go by. Was only disappointed when the large room was closed for a private party on one night of our two night stay.

An older hotel, a bit noisy, but not real expensive either.

Great location off the bike path. Good food at the bar

We had a great stay. Spacious room, great food and friendly staff. The place could use a little updating and maintenance. We definitely liked how organized the parking lot attendant was about snowmobile trailers. We have been to other places and it is a "free for all" an difficult to park and unload the sleds. Right next door is a Dollar General and a gas station with a small grocery store. The snowmobile trail is right out the back door. We couldn't have asked for a better situation. We will definitely stay there again.

Decent, but older. Service in restaurant a bit slow.

ok for the price. The rooms could use some fixing but ok.

I would like to see an improvement on the continental breakfast,but overall it was a very good experience.The hotel is located right on a bicycle trail which runs all the way to Boulder Junction.The trail is paved and is in awesome shape! Great starting point for a bike ride. The bar/restaurant is connected the hotel,and the food was very good. I will definitely be coming back!

My only real complaint is the horribly noisy bathroom fans; the floor and walls vibrate when your neighbor's fan is on. Need to replace all the fans.
