I recently stayed at this hotel on business, boss booked the room so I had no say in where I stayed. Hotel as a whole is well staffed, check in went great(even after some issues from the booking company). front desk folks were kind and helped me find a few restaurants that were nearby and had good local flavor. It's... More

We stayed at the Kahler Apache on August 10th in a family room which offered two queen beds and one pull-out sofa. I reserved through booking.com, but when we arrived at the hotel, they did not have the reservation. I don't know if this was an issue with Booking.com or on their end. I do know the staff was wonderful... More

The clerk on duty JJ, was great...day 2 we left our room early (9am) for an appointment that took all day. We placed the "service... More

Checked in my large family for an overnight stay. There was extreme mold growing around the hot tub- loose mold that delightfully scraped off onto your toes. Mold on the floor around the steps to the pool, and on the floor under the waterslide. That was the "Waterpark ". The bathtub floor was dirty. There were no vending machines, so... More

Thank you for your review. As I am new to the hotel, I am confused by the review's no vending machine comments as we have two vending areas immediately adjacent to the pool area on both the first floor (by the guest laundry) and visible on the second floor by the pool. . We are continuing to address any and... More

Our bedding had BLOOD on it! Clearly the bedding had not been changed. The shower curtain had mold on the bottom. The shuttle service is not continuous. It runs on an hourly schedule with a 3 hr break in the middle of the day. If you are a Mayo patient, this might be difficult and include an enormous amount of... More

The water park area is surprisingly well maintained and relatively clean (main pool needed a good cleaning to remove hard water build-up around edge). The hotel ballroom service/food/staff is excellent. The hotel itself is VERY dirty. Sheets and shower curtain were stained, needed to be replaced badly. Carpet is so dirty we always kept shoes on, cringed when things accidentally... More

This hotel gives the appearance of being neglected. While it on first blush appears to be nice, it absolutely does not measure up to the internet ads. It is also dirty. There was mold on the curtains in our room and there was so much build-up on the tiles of the pool that people could "carve" their initials in it.

The room and bedding was damp and the wall paper was peeling. The pool was nice but just because there is one slide that does not make it a water park. We would not stay here again . for the rate of $85 this room was more of a $40 motel room.

We enjoyed our stay for the most part but it was obviously not clean. Stains on the bed spreads and around toilet had not been cleaned. Carpets in hallways very stained. We checked out at 8:30 and the pool area still had dirty tables with food on them from the night before. The main reason this hotel is busy is... More
