The aurora are elusive and while we were there during a quiet aurora we still got to see the lights and we got our picture taken by Mok with the Aurora in the background. We could only get two nights booked, but it was so great we drove back for the evening viewing with the hope of seeing the lights again. Mok took good care of us and is very focused on the viewing experience and ensuring everyone has a great chance to take photos of the lights. There are even walkie talkies in the rooms so you can get an alarm to wake up if the lights show up in the middle of the night after a snow storm (which happend to us; we saw the lights at 7am the first time)
We also stayed a couple of nights and Dale and Jo's view B&B, and while it is very nice, if you are desparate to see the lights, you have to stay here with Mok. This is the best chance you have to see them.
As other reviewers have said, there is no TV, just the lights of the night sky and I think it should stay that way. Enjoy, and check out the nearby Silver Gulch brewery during the day. Good food and good beer.
