I called to book the room at the last minute. All of the rooms in the hotel were already booked. I opted to try the Kingfisher rooms down by the river. This room had a private 3/4 bath with shower. It was clean, though the shower curtain had a little mold at the bottom. I am guessing humidity can be an issue due to location and lack of proper ventilation of the space. Once the room warmed up, the dampness issues were resolved. The outdoor temps dropped into the teens and the room heater maintained the ambient temperature well. These rooms also have TVs with satellite service. It was nice to have access to the weather channel since my trip had to be altered to avoid snow and potential road hazards. I tried the restaurant's famous walnut burger for dinner. It was tasty and the service was excellent. It is a mile from the Kingfisher to the hotel. In nice weather it would be a pleasant walk. With cold weather and early darkness I chose to drive. Parking not an issue but maybe in high season it would be It would be a great place to go with friends or a small group. There is easy of access to the river if you have your own boat, plus hiking at Perrot State Park.
