My wife and I stayed here for two nights in September 2021. We both agreed we did not get our money's worth because of the condition of the rooms. They are very outdated and need to be cleaned better in-between guests. Other than the poor quality of the room, the hotel was nice.

Ian and Mary did everything within their power to make our stay perfect. We will be going back and look forward to alerting others to what a fun place it was and not costly. Beautiful view from our deck, which was large and equipped with a table, 4 chairs and a couch, that was vinyl, so could be sanitized. They had lovely flowers in the room and a bottle of . tequilla for me and bottle of whiskey for my husband. Bag of Ice in freezer too.

I booked a Hermosa Cottage because it is close to town & appeared to be the most affordable place to stay. I got what I paid for- a clean, quiet place w a comfortable bed. The room was small, the bathroom & shower were small but everything was functional. But I had a cooler to keep my water cold & was okay for a short stay. If you want more space & a few more amenities, my advice is to spend a little more for a different hotel.

The room was 10 X 10 including the bathroom which had mildew on shower floor & curtain. The towel rack was falling off the wall as well as the shower curtain rod. No hot water for shower. There was sand in the bed on the sheets. Not a pleasant experience at all. I would definitely NOT recommend this hotel!
