We were simply looking for a place to stay for the night. Had we known how nice the room and area were going to be we would have planned for a second night. We arrived after dark and without a reservation, but were able to get a room with a king size bed and fireplace overlooking the river.
The room was large, bed was comfortable, and the flat screen and gas fireplace were nice additions. A refrigerator was also provided. Nice little breakfast, but limited seating. Staff was friendly and courteous.
Hotel and parking are just off the main street, but you can easily walk to anything. The location could not be any better if you are planning on spending time at the national park. We cannot wait to return, and we won't bother looking anywhere else to stay.
