The hotel has an ideal location just off the main drag and walking distance to bars, shopping, restaurants, the historic area etc. It is close to the ski resorts (under 15 mins drive.) We were in town for an event. This was the selected hotel for the group - so we did not pick to stay here ourselves. We have never been to the area before. I am not sure where we would have stayed if we had been able to chose.
We arrived prior to the published check in time and were quickly given keys to a room. The room had two double beds, small desk, working chair, reading chair/ottoman, and a small refrigerator/microwave combination. There is an iron/board and extra blanket in the closet along with a safe.
The room was clean.
There were several minor issues:
- Door did not latch each time we left. Had to ensure to pull it fully closed
- The hairdyer in the bathroom was not working properly. It had to be plugged in to turn on and unplugged to turn off. Housekeeping must have known this and not had it fixed, as we found in in the "unplugged" position at arrival.
- The hot water lever at the sink was loose.
- One of our two keys did not work.
- The toilet did not always completely flush the contents away
- The beds are soft. No firmness to them at all.
- The tub bottom is slippery. They provide a rubber mat. Use it. I typically do not uset these as I have good balance/dexterity and no mobility issues. I needed it this time as I almost fell.
The entire room was "builder's grade." This property did not spend a great deal of money on materials. The shower head, sink, toilet, tub/surround, furniture, carpeting, bedding, appliances etc. are all "as cheap as possible to look good and work okay."
On the plus side
- Very friendly staff
- Very easy check in/check out
- Very easy parking
- Room size good
- Insane amount of towels in the bathroom. You will not need more.
We had breakfast included with our event. We did not sample the included breakfast aside from coffee. The coffee was a little on the weak side. (Dina's in town has good coffee!)
