Poor Lazy J Ranch has seen better days. I've stayed there a few times going back some twenty years. Unfortunately, they just do not seem to be keeping up with upgrades and maintenance. It is still an okay place to stay with nice people and a pretty environment but the rooms are showing signs of age and are getting a bit seedy. If you pay more than $59.00, you are not getting any value for your money.
I realize that some rooms may be better than others but the one in which I stayed definitely needed some repair and improvement. The bathroom needed all new fixtures, the shower was very poor and the sink was showing signs of age. Furniture was cheap and dated and the carpeting needed cleaning.
Used to be Lazy J referred to a laid back lifestyle (and a big black dog if I recall correctly) but now it seems to be the owner's attitude towards fixing the place up. WIth a brand new Comfort Inn down the road at a better price, the people at Lazy J have to get their act together and keep up with the times.
