We found this hotel on a cross-country road-trip in May. I actually picked this hotel because I was hungry and this is right next door to a Chilis! We ordered carry-out and had dinner in our room - very convenient and a nice way to unwind after a long day of driving. The lodge feeling is all aroud you - but works for this hotel.
While we had an overall good experience - there was one unusual encounter at check-in:
We travel with our very small chihuahua and always look for pet-friendly hotels. This hotel is pet-friendly, however the front desk clerk advised us that we could NOT use the front entry to bring our pet into the hotel. What an unusual request that they did not want me to tuck an eight pound chihuahua under my arm to bring into the hotel - they wanted me to use the "back door." I didn't get the rule of going through the back door ... a pretty strange request.
