My sister and I stopped for one night on a 2 week road trip. The only reason - other than being in a convenient place to stop for the night - was that this hotel is where Dirty Dancing was filmed.
The hotel itself is dated in places. Our room did not have a TV - which I was aware of when I booked - and the bathroom was old but very clean. Dinner and breakfast were included in our rate of $270 for the night.
The service we received was top-notch. It was raining when we arrived and the manager on duty took our bags and then followed me with the car to the parking lot, so he could drive me back to the door so that I did not have to get wet. Very impressive.
He sought us out at various points in the night, helping us find things around the hotel and telling us stories.
The front desk staff, dining room staff and bar staff were all equally friendly and helpful.
We enjoyed the Activities Barn although it was HOT on the top level, as well as wandering the property the next morning. We had a ball - but if you weren't there with children or there to carry a watermelon or take Baby out of the corner, it may not be the hotel for you.
