This is an old style lodge hotel... it's a short (3-4 minute) drive from town and a great/quiet location with very pleasant mountain views.
Our initial thoughts were not 100% positive (the hotel layout is a bit confusing and you have to get elevators from one level, back up to the reception floor, to get to the same level on the other side of the hotel), but once you understand this, the place grows on you ;-)
We really enjoyed our stay though... the spa area was very relaxing (shame we could not get any last minute massages)... the jacuzzi was welcome after a hard days hiking (although the pool had way too much chlorine in it and you could smell it as soon as you walked in).
There are plenty of places to relax in the bar area, with big comfy sofas and chairs... again, welcome after a long day out and before heading out for dinner.
Overall, despite our initial concerns, Rimrock grew on us and we really enjoyed it... we would probably stay again... If we had one gripe, it was probably the parking charges, which, for an out of town location were totally unnecessary and just felt like another way to extract more $'s from your wallet! ;-)
If you are looking for a peaceful, quiet location with super friendly staff and a relaxing lodge atmosphere, you can't go wrong...
