South shore is pretty run down these days and this place is no exception. A 1960's-era motel with thin walls, threadbare carpets, small bathrooms and hard beds. And a TV straight from the Johnson administration. My 7 year-old was like "what is that?" She'd never seen a CRT before. The "free" breakfast was a plate of stale pastries. They advertised... More

Great place to stay! Comfortable, reliable, friendly staff and great location. Also, the heavenly ski bus stopped right in front of the hotel and it was free. The front desk ladies were very nice and answered all of our questions, and even gave us great dinner recommendations. We had a great time and will definitely stay at this hotel again!

Hotel was great! Fantastic staff, rooms were nice and clean, great location as well. We were able to go skiing and go to the casinos since both attractions are close to hotel. Continental breakfast was good and restaurant on site had great food with big portions. Will definitely stay here again!

This hotel was perfect for us. Close to all of the attractions we were doing. Rooms were clean and basic which is great for us. Staff was friendly and gave us ideas of where to go. We would stay again at this hotel on our next visit. Great relaxing trip.

Ok people this place is great if you need a good clean bed hot shower. Good breakfast. But mid week you can get a room for under $40. It's not five stars but plenty of room to park. No resort fees. Good staff. I will be back in two weeks. Ski shuttle picks you up out side the hotel as... More

This hotel has a building permit posted on the outside wall. They should consider renovating with a bulldozer! The hotel is dated, with slipshod repairs, poor decor, lighting, and heating. The ONLY positives are: that there was plenty of hot water and the cleaning staff did a decent job and the wi-fi was good. Something is wrong on the management... More

This was my first stay in a motel, but compared to my other hotel/hostel experiences I would rate it rather highly. Rooms are not stylish by any stretch of the imagination but just functional and very comfortable, which is exactly what I wanted.

My boyfriend and I booked a room here and once we checked in and went to our room we found a dead bug on the bed spread. Where the smoke alarm should have been was just dangling wires and then the shower had mold growing in the grout. We were so unimpressed that we just left and didn't even bother... More

They used to be a Quality Inn, but is now an Econo Lodge. The rooms are still spacious, and they added in charging stations for our electronics - even offer charging adapters at the front desk if you need them. Same friendly woman at the desk. But let's be real here - it's an Econo Lodge, not a luxury resort.... More

Staff could not be nicer, however everything in rooms completely dated and must be entirely original from when it was built in the 70's?....... It was clean, again showing staff are doing their due diligence, however owners need to reinvest money to completely update. If updated this could be a gem. Now the restaurant "bar"-- run away!!! Terrible -waitresses were... More
