6/10 Good

The room was fine, the TV indecipherable, the hot tub excellent. Breakfast was okay, but not having coffee out before 8:00 is bad business

Very clean, excellent breakfast, nice owners. The wifi was on and off in our room ( excellent to log off), but wifi in our other room the first time we stayed here was perfectly fine so might just be the location of this one room. I didn’t need a fix because I enjoyed logging off, but if I needed to work, I would just have asked for help.

The facility worked out fine for my husband and I and for our son, wife and 2 children. Unfortunately none of the common spaces were open which limited our ability to socialize move around, play pool and games in a living room area outside of our hotel rooms. I wish we knew this in advance of our visit. It was not mentioned.

- I was disappointed that the room didn't have a simple fridge and microwave/water kettle so one could store some necessary foods and drinks while at such a place, as well as a simple microwave as most properties of this category do. - The showerhead was only able to produce either super hot or cold water. There was two of us trying to figure out the right amount of spins on hot and cold to create temperature for at least 5 min each and it just didn't happen. - All the existing vending machines were out of order, as well as one main common area was blocked and not permitted to use which at this point is a bit disappointing. Pandemic and all, we needed to wear masks at all times which is fine, but don't understand why I couldn't chill on a couch for a bit. - I find breakfast from 8-9 am a bit restrictive. It's possible this is only due to a staff shortage that kind owner was talking about. - It'd be nice if the description of the room had said that this is basically a basement room with a small window from the mid wall the top of the ceiling and that the view was pretty much just steep uphill in front of the window, with snow big portion of the window light was blocked by all the snow that accumulated on the uphill. Wasn't expecting to see mountains for the price, however it felt like a basement room.
