This was a last minute trip in Feb 2014 and for the record - I did a "Room Only" and did not participate in the other activities or food options. GOOD: Typical dude ranch with 50s bunkhouse style cabins, big corral with horses for trail riding, large RV park in back, recreation room, pool. The "Room Only" rate was 1/2 price ($61.00). Reservation by phone was easy and received an email confirmation right away. I arrived after the office closed so the key was left in mailbox. BAD: Room is VERY basic. Full bed [comfy but pillows and bedspread smell like sweat/dirty socks], Junior size twin bunkbeds, small bathroom, tiny shower, thin walls/windows. Door has a crack above and below. WORST [not exactly Management's fault]: My neighbors who spent most of their time on the shared porch a few feet from my door, woke up at 7:30am both mornings, smoking, talking, laughing, and on Saturday night came in at 11pm and talked/smoked/laughed until 2am. There was NO WAY to avoid the noise as there is no TV in room and the a/c cycled on/off due to it being in the 60s. With the office closing at 5pm, there is no one to call to report a disturbance other than the Sheriff. To top it off, there was a huge spider on the wall above the bunkbeds. Obviously, the cracks above the door do not deter them. I would not stay here again unless I had my own RV and parked way out in the back section. The management needs to enforce a "Quiet Time" policy.
