I really wanted to like this place. The curb appeal is excellent. It is a large property scattered with train cars, cabooses, motel rooms, and even spaces for RV's. I love the concept of this facility. It is also pet friendly.
Upon arriving, we were greeted by a very friendly staff member who took her time to explain where everything was, provide brochures to the local attractions, and the restaurant coupons to the guests. She also provided a "welcome bag" for our pooch, which had 2 doggy treats and 2 "business" bags. She was also kind enough to explain where we could walk the dog on the property.
The room was average, definitely not luxurious. There was a tube television with poor reception. The wi-fi was very intermittent (which was blamed on the weather, however our best reception was on the day with bad weather).
I gave the cleanliness a 1 because 1) there was a plastic floss pick next to one of the beds, 2) I had accidentally knocked off the no smoking sign, and when I went to retrieve it behind the night stand my hand was greeted by a cluster of cobwebs, 3) the first time I went to get in the shower, I noticed a pleathora of hairs that were not mine-- ewe!
We shared a divider door with the room next to us and it let a lot of noise in. The worst part was that our neighbors entrance door had squeaky hinges. They were early risers so we had the pleasure of hearing that and waking up to it about 20 times between 6:00-7:00 am. I guess they had a lot to put in the car for the day. I did mention this to the front desk lady as we were leaving, but she was not as pleasant as the first lady from our arrival. She said she would put it on the maintenance list.
My other disappointment was that the indoor pool had flooded and
was a muddy mess.
This property has a lot of potential. If you are placed in the right room, at the right time, it would probably be a very enjoyable experience.
