When I was a child I used to ride by this hotel and think that I wanted to stay there. I finally did, and I was extremely disappointed. The room was relatively clean, but everything else about the hotel was a let-down. The heated indoor pool that was advertised turned out to be unheated. My wife and I wanted to go swimming, though, so we used the net to skim all of the bugs off of the surface of the water, then we got in. The water was downright cold and I couldn't get in above my knees. The jacuzzi was shut down for some unknown reason. The carpet in the hallways was worn out. I asked for a room with a view and got a room with a view... of the trees directly outside the window. Through the branches I could sometimes see the mountain if the wind blew just the right way, but there really was no view. The worst part was the "free continental breakfast". They had a toaster, three loaves of bread, and some toast and jelly. They didn't even have cold cereal and milk! The bread was still in the bags, so you were expected to open up the bag, stick your hand in to get some bread, and then close up the bag. I could only wonder how many dirty hands had been in the bag before mine, so I just decided to skip the "free continental breakfast" and go get an Egg McMuffin.
