The price was way to high for this place. The place is old, run down and dirty. The carpet in my room was so disgustingly dirty that I didn't want to walk barefooted. The bathroom was equally dirty and gross.

The staff was helpful. The pool area is beautiful but no hot tub. The adjoining restaurant has good food and is very convenient. The beds were comfortable. A short walk to Hjemkost center and downtown.

I am not happy with my stay this time around. First off they charged me $45 more than I was quoted for the 3 days, 3 rooms each. The breakfast for that price was minimal. We arrived at 2 pm and our rooms were not ready until 4. The evening desk clerk was fantastic I must say. We have been... More

Our room was very clean, as were the halls and the workout room. There was a definite odor in all of the main hallways. We thought it might have been the carpet?? The breakfast area was very comfortable.

This place is miserable! Dirty bed sheets, smokey smell, poor internet, poor "complimentary" breakfast. We switched rooms several times and none was satisfied. Stay far far away from it.

My sincerest apologies 472zy0 that your experience at our property was less than satisfactory. The cleanliness issues that you expressed you had experienced are not the standards we strive for as our staff normally prides themselves on maintaining a very clean facility. I am very sorry that this pride did not show through during your stay. I regret that the... More
