The family and I stayed for three nights. I was pleasantly surprised by the room. It had a mini fridge and freezer and a microwave. Room was clean and ample room for all our suitcases. The bathroom was small but worked out fine.
Daughter loved the pool especially the 9 ft deep area. I even liked it especially since eyes didn't burn from chemicals the minute you walked into the pool area.
There are grills to use and a firepit. The office does have matches and grill utensils such as tongs and turner for your use. They also have dvds that you can checkout which was nice.
Location was great. Walk to all downtown shops and 5 minutes to the Fall River RMNP entrance.
The breakfast offerings I was very happy with. Great selection and not at all what I was expecting which was subpar food and little of it. Daughter loved the cinnamon danishes. They had yogurt, hard boiled eggs, instant oatmeal, bread, English muffins, pastries, fruit, cereal, oj and milk and coffee of course. Bring your own water though which you should have plenty of anyway being in the elevation.
Last thing, I would stay here again.
