Our family just stayed at this resort. It doesn't look like much on the outside, but we were pleasantly surprised when entering the room. Much larger than we anticipated, nice changing area, two sinks, walk-in closet, fridge, and basic bathroom. Nice Bath & Body shampoo, soap, etc. for guests.
The room was large with fireplace, small couch, bed, small 'cafe table and two chairs.' The furniture, carpet, etc., is out-of-date, looking like a room from the early 80's, but bed was comfortable and things pretty clean.
The view is fantastic.
Things started good, but progressively got worse. Tried to have dinner in the dining room. Our young son was dressed nice, but didn't have a dinner jacket (which I understand is required for men). The maitre'd took one look, turned his nose up and said we had to eat in the bar.
We were told it was seat yourself. After 15 minutes of no service, my husband went to ask if there was a server. He was told rudely, they were short-handed and would get to us when they could. Soon after, we did have about three servers trying to help us and the other tables waiting for service. Food was okay.
The first night, the fireplace didn't work and we called the front desk. Two men came, but couldn't fix it. They left and sent someone else. He came & 'fixed it,' but it continued to stop. Next, the toilet clogged from a little toilet paper. Two men showed up with a plunger and seriously asked if I wanted to unclog it. They worked on it for 20 minutes and made a mess. They didn't lift the toilet seat to unclog and would have left without even ripping down the messed up toilet seat or floor, if my husband had not insisted they clean it.
Second afternoon, fireplace did not work again. Called for service and repairman came and fixed it this time. Toilet problems again from just flushing (no toilet paper or anything in bowl). We thought it would possibly go down while we were gone. The night, same problem, husband called the front desk. We were told (by name) who would come fix it. They never showed up. At that point, we had to start using the public bathrooms by the restaurant. (Not overly clean, plus a pain to put on your shoes and hike down to the bathroom.)
Next day, toilet seemed like it might be okay. Flushed it (no toilet paper or anything else), but water immediately raised to toilet seat. Then we started hoping in car and driving down the to nearby restaurants and visitor center to use their bathrooms.
For close to $400 a night (or any other price), I've never stayed anywhere that I didn't have a working toilet. My husband complained about the toilet, again, when we checked out and was essentiality told by the front desk worker that they couldn't do anything about our problems. My husband said the manager sat in their office, but never bothered to come out to talk to him.
The view is fantastic, but we would never stay there again. It wasn't worth all of the problems or lack of bathroom.
