I've traveled to a few places in the U.S. and have stayed in good places, bad places and places inbetween. I had read the reviews for the Tokeland Hotel and they weren't very positive. But something made me reserve adjoining rooms for me and my spouse and teen son anyway and I'm glad I did.
If you go without expectations of the Hyatt, you can get into the fun of an historical monument. This hotel was built in 1885, for heaven's sake! They've kept it true to its roots and rightly so. For some reason, I kept thinking of the movie "Somewhere In Time" ... and my mind would drift off to long ago traditions and quaint customs.
The people associated with the city of Tokeland and the hotel are friendly and courteous and want to make your stay feel like home. The town is small and the atmosphere is warm. You can't walk very far without someone stopping to talk and exchange pleasantries. One surprising event.. they have wifi! I had taken my computer for photography uploads, and found the open server! Nice to have for email and IM.
Give the Tokeland Hotel a try with an open heart and mind. Experience life as it used to be, with charm and history right at your fingertips. You might be glad you did... .. I was.
