  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Property was clean and had good facilities, however there was no cooling in the unit which made it uncomfortable especially to sleep. They did however provide a fan but as there were 5 of us, one room had to have an uncomfortable night again.

    Clean property. Comfortable bed. TV with lots of channels. Easy check in and out. Bathroom too small, not elbow room. Had to stand in bedroom looking into bathroom to do hair.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Cindy on front desk was amazing! She made sure that we were constantly updated with road and weather conditions for our journey ahead. Great view of the mountains. Definitely will be coming back here!
