    This place looks new. The lobby, grounds, and rooms are new looking. The staff are all really friendly, the room smells clean, and need nothing. We tend to stay at Best Westerns when on road trips, they are all nice.

    I don´t think so. They barely have wi-fi (it´s pay to use). But then again, that´s part of the experience of being in the wilderness. Just my two cents.
