I'm a travel writer, so I try to stay in unique places that will give you an 'experience' when you travel. We're currently on a road trip down the I5 to Los Angeles with the family, and we decided to spend a night at the Heathman Lodge.
First off, there's a wonderful atmosphere when you walk in the lobby. It feels like the inside of a rustic cabin, if that cabin could had a totem pole in the middle of it.
Check in was seamless, and after being given a quick run down on the hotel, I was on my way in under 5 minutes (which is great when you have impatient kids waiting).
Our room was the family suite. It consists of a king size bed, a queen sized bed in a separate bedroom, and a very comfortable leather couch. The small kitchen area has a fridge and a microwave, with cupboard space in case you need to put groceries away. Plus, the bathroom is huge, with a glass shower and a jacuzzi tub complete with jets and a bottle of bubble bath.
Overall the room felt spacious, clean, and very comfortable.
We took the time to go to appy hour. Draft beer was only $3.50, and appys ranged from $2 to $6. I recommend the grilled asparagus and the lettuce wedge. Both were amazing.
Even though the highway was just outside the window, we didn't hear it while sleeping. The halls were very quiet. And the beds were very comfy. I like a soft bed, and this one felt just like home.
Sitting on the deck of the room was nice, and it smells like cedar while you enjoy the sunshine.
