We rented in August of this year. The location was great, and it's very close to everything - including the Grocery store, Gondola, and restaurants. The room was fairly clean, and the grounds well kept. Plenty of parking and a bike trail is right behind the property. The front desk girl was very polite and helpful when we checked in.
If you expect to be "pampered" while you're there - that is not the aim of this place, it's VERY basic and plain. It truly needs some updating badly.
Because we typically try to rent kitchenettes while traveling to save money and cook - I was surprised at how small the kitchenette room was, but considering the price I was ok with it. It's pretty tough for a family of three to cook a full dinner in such a small space - so if you are considering the lower cost kitchenette - be sure to bring things that don't need a whole lot of help to get prepared. There is also a grill outside that we missed until after we cooked steak in our room.
After hiking and walking A LOT all day - a soak in the hot tub sounded so very good - but, it was pretty luke-warm. Just wasn't enjoyable at all. It's HUGE, but it was not hot.
Our room's carpet was also pretty dirty, and the linoleum in the bathroom had mold under it. It was pretty discolored in a large area near the shower. We also (because we aim to own a hotel/property of our own someday) did the Anthony Melchiorri test on the picture frames and Mirrors, and there was a significant amount of dust built up on them. Ew.
The beds were VERY hard, as some others have pointed out. We didn't sleep well either night.
Also, the cleaning supplies to clean up the kitchenette area was lacking. A spray cleaner for oily messes would have been nice (Unless I missed it) and when I was washing dishes in the am before we left - all they had was a sponge and a washcloth. I ended up badly cutting my hand when a glass broke while I was washing it - so I left a few glasses behind so they could do it with a glass sponge or brush or something safer.
The hallways are very drab and reminded me of a college dorm or something. Some fresh paint, and maybe a mural or picture or two would make it feel a tad more inviting.
