4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

The hotel was nice and Staff very friendly, However advertising of this site claims to have on site bar with complimentary drinks, fitness center and full breakfast, First off the hotel owners own the bar, fitness center and restaurant. These are all separate buildings, some of them liek the fitness center several blocks away. I did not want to get out and go down the snow packed street in -2 degreee weather for a workout then return to my room to shower. So i go to breakfast- my complimentary breakfast include my choice of boiled or scrambled egg, with muffin or toast and canned peaches, does this sound like full breakfast? NO! Oh wait you get coffee also. but if you decide to order off the menu coffe is no longer free. but you do get a discount- how nice Buyer beware of fine print

Hi,

I apologize that our amenities did not meet your expectations. We are in the process of revising how these are presented online and it should provide less confusion in the future. I hope you will give us another try next time you are in the area.

This hotel is outdated. The front desk clerk was very nice and welcoming, and our actual room was large and clean, but that's where the compliments end. Our room was on the second floor, which would not have been a big deal, except there isn't an elevator in the hotel. The hallways are dark and outdated. When we entered our room the thermometer was set at sixty one degrees (it was 11 degrees outside). With radiator heating it took over an hour to raise the temperature to seventy two. We soon found out that there was only ONE ice machine in the ENTIRE hotel. After walking all the way to the front of the hotel to the ice machine to fill up one small ice bucket we were told that somebody must have just used the ice machine and that it would take ten minutes to make more ice! Really???? We had two adults and two children in our room but we were only supplied with three bath towels. Ummm...that doesn't exactly add up. My biggest complaint though was the fact that the walls are paper thin. We could listen to the entire conversation of the people next door. I actually woke up at 6 a.m. because the person next door sneezed! That is just ridiculous!!

Very convenient hotel for the nearby ski race. Designated area for waxing skis. The breakfast was absolutely delicious. Rooms and beds were comfortable. Everyone was friendly. Only complaint was I could hear lots of stomping from the rooms upstairs and lots of noise from the high school teams staying at the hotel, but that's not the hotel's fault. By midnight it was dead quiet and easy to sleep. I'll come back next year.

Room Tip: Get a room upstairs and you won't have to worry about hearing stomping above you.

Rooms were very clean. Lobby is very small. We were traveling with a group of 6 couples and we like to gather in lobby to visit and this did not work well. There were several high school activities going on in the area so there were a lot of young people staying at the motel and they gathered in the hallway and it was kind of loud. You could hear the showers from adjacent rooms. Location was good, good complimentary breakfast at resturant next door.

My family and I visited the hotel for an extended weekend to snowmobile. The hotel lobby and rooms were clean and maintained well for their age. We were given a trail map for the area which was very kind of the staff. They were somewhat knowledgeable of the local trails and restaurants to visit. They provided us with some great local recommendations. They had ample parking for snowmobiles/trailers. They are also right on the trail. They provide coupons for breakfast at the restaurant next door, but the "complementary" items fall short of what I have come to expect from hotel breakfasts.

Room Tip: The front of the hotel offers a view to where many of the snowmobiles are kept and offer more of the...

Just stayed for the weekend. For an older motel it's nice and clean. Front office staff were very helpful when we had snowmobile trail questions. Liked the coupons we got to eat next door. Food was excellent every day we were there. Pool is nice and hot tub great. Would return and recommend friends to stay here.
