My wife and I stayed here for 1 night. The entire building is quite clean, the beds comfortable, and the staff very friendly. This is not a super fancy hotel, but it is by far the nicest hotel in the area and is worth every penny. The breakfast is free and consists of yogurt, cereal, juices, sausage, eggs, pancakes etc....

Stayed for two nights. This is a nice clean comfortable place. The hot breakfast was similar to most other hotels but a bit above average for quality and type of food. There is an active CPR rail line running nearby in the valley but not much the hotel can do about that.

Situated on the rivers edge, rooms don't all have great views but they are quiet, clean and comfortable with space and amenities you might not expect in a small town. The continental breakfast is decent lacking some originality in the eggs but the kitchen was kept clean and well stocked. The coffee machine beside front desk offers many more options... More

Great breakfast especially loved the pancake machine in the morning :) The hotel is next to a great walking trail. Only disappointment was the Mexican restaurant was closed while we were there.
