We thought it would be fun to have a room right along the Narrow Gauge railroad so we could watch the trains, and that part was kind of cool, but this hotel has definitely seen better days. I can't say that our stay was terrible, as our room was basically clean and served it's purpose. We were on a long family vacation, and chose this place because they also offered a "Family Suite" with 3 beds, which was a plus for our 2 grown children, as they could have their own bed for the night. Another plus was the free shuttle that came right through the property and picked you up to take you downtown where all the shops and restaurants were. That allowed us to leave our car, relax for the ride in, and we could all have a drink with dinner and not have to drive back. The negatives.... it is somewhat outdated, especially the bathrooms. The couch in the living room was the most uncomfortable thing I have ever sat on, and we really had to do some adjusting of furniture to make sure that the sleeping area (on the 2nd floor of the suite) could get the cool air from the air conditioner (two of the beds were covering up the vents, and when we first arrived, thought there was no way we could sleep upstairs, as it was so warm, but moved the beds a little and opened the vents all the way, and by the time we retired for the night, it was nice and cool). It was also further out of town than we expected. Good thing for that shuttle, or it would have taken us another 10-15 minutes to drive back into town. Overall, it was an ok place to stay. We were only there one night, so it served it's purpose. Would we stay again.... probably not, but we have definitely stayed in worse places.
