The Good: The hotel is very close to the south entrance of the park. It is also right next to a wonderful river that adds to an awesome view of beautiful hills from the hotel window and balcony. When the river is full, you can hear it roar which combined with the fresh air makes for a relaxing experience. The lady that mans the front desk (Victoria) in the evening is very nice and adds to the overall experience as well as the friendly and free roaming cats that live on the property. The refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and TV were nice to have. The rate for a king bed was very reasonable.

The Tolerable: The bathrooms are very small with the toilet snuggled neatly between the wall and the sink making for an interesting experience when your business involves numbers higher than 1. The place is clean but definitely showing signs of age. Sometimes the box springs in the bed were louder than the birds outside. It had a feeling of indoor camping. Hair dryer not supplied by the hotel ?? all you get are 2 dispensers in the shower for shampoo and body soap. The walls are thin and you can hear everyone else moving and knocking about in their rooms. The ??breakfast basket? is okay but not breakfast. With so many good bakeries in town ?? see Wee Three Bakery ?? they could have used it as a nice way to advertise the local eateries.

The Ugly: Smokers. The rooms share a community balcony and the cigarette smoke seems to find its way directly into your window. On our second night some human chimneys checked into the room next to us and we were forced to close all the windows and run the air conditioner. Needless to say we felt cheated of being able to experience the river and fresh air ?? the only reason why one would stay there in the first place. The management only restricts smoking in the rooms but the shared balconies and picnic area overlooking the river seem to be the designated smoking areas. We left early since we were unable to open any windows and enjoy the clean fresh air without being inundated by everyone??s cigarette smoke. My advice is to stay away if you don??t smoke.
