Somebody wrote that "you do get what you pay for", and this could be true if you'd pay 40-50$. Like all places near National Parks, this one overcharges too.
1)First of all, it was not clean and it smelled not great. We found ants and mold in the bathroom, and cotton swabs placed (by the previous guest?) IN the wall, where holes were. I should have taken pictures..but it was disgusting. No hair dryer. Old but working microwave. The refrigerator came handy.
2)Pool is big, but it is open only in the afternoon. We went once, and it needs some maintenance in my opinion. There is some rusty stuff indeed.
3)They tried to charge us $10 more than the reservation for no reason. My husband got mad and in the end they did not.
Overall, we slept. It was not noisy.
Next time we would pay a little more, though, and go somewhere else. Especially for the cleanliness, since we have a little one.
