I found this little hotel online when we decided to take a last minute vacation. What a jewel it turned out to be! The rooms are clean and don't have the cookie-cutter hotel feel. The owners are lovely and so very helpful. Although it is situated on the main street, you would never know it. The rooms are so quiet... More

This was our first time to stay at the Sitzmark Chalet. We have driven by it for years and watched it transform from a basic motor inn into a neat hotel with lots of interesting items collected by the current owners. It is a very casual, laid back place. The rooms are basic hotel rooms built in '50s and '60s.... More

Older property, but well maintained, friendly owners and staff. I had read some reviews that stated that road noise was a problem, but we didn't have to even turn on the sound masking machine that was in our room (never seen that before, but it is a clever idea). The room was larger than most, beds were comfortable, and location... More

My family of four stayed here for 2 nights in July toward the end of our vacation and absolutely loved it. The Inn itself was incredibly charming, the rooms cozy and inviting and the grounds felt like a little retreat of their own (my kids loved sitting outside near the sauna and telling ghost stories one night :). I highly... More

I stayed here one night for business. I thought that the owners seemed like they were proud of their hotel and took good care of it. The room was clean. The bathroom looked like it had been updated. I would stay here again.

Stayed here one night and it was a perfect stop for us. The owners are great hosts and very pleasant. The room was very comfortable and on the large size. Bathroom was small, but adequate.

The Inn is along a stretch of road with some dicey-looking hotels, so I was glad to have read the other positive reviews to know where to go. The property is adorable and well-kept. The rooms have free wi-fi, a white noise machine (haven't seen that in 4-star places), and upscale toiletries. They're clean and nicely decorated, and the beds... More
