Then you walk into this fancy and beautiful lobby. If you didn't know the name of the hotel would might think you were at the Hilton or... More

Very nice facility. Hotel decor and furnishings way extraordinary. Beautiful grounds. Very good breakfast offerings. Lots of amenities. BUT our room was very noisy which made a decent nights sleep impossible. The plumbing in the hotel varies from sounding like a fire hose going on and off to cascading waterfalls. These sounds happened most of the night. In addition the... More

Pool and outdoors were very nice, whirlpool not so much so (too much chlorine). Outdoors trees and entrance were lovely. Rooms and lobby spacious but rather unattractive and really garish lighting in room. Breakfast was quite surprisingly good and better than most hotels with an included breakfast including eggs etc. prepared to order, waffles to make yourself and nice fruit... More

Beautiful hotel. So much more than a typical Best Western. Located close to that village and ski resort. Comes with a full cooked breakfast. Not a continental breakfast. The location is beautiful. I definitely recommend it

The hotel is really very nice, very attractive. The room was very roomy and pleasantly appointed, and clean. Will definitely stay there again. Breakfast in the morning was... More

Given wrong room booked months in advance - expedia booking took priority and given lower rate than corporate site. Front desk staff not cooperative and hotel is dated and very tired. Will never stay again.

Good value with complimentary breakfast. Relaxed atomosphere. Family friendly. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the live entertainment in the lounge Saturday night. Wish the restaurant/lounge was open for dinner during the week.

The location is ok, a little off the main road and there was a lot of road construction there, which made for a lot of traffic. The hotel will not check in before the 4:00 p.m. check-in time. When I made the reservation, I... More
