We came here after a day of skiing at Dodge Ridge. The room was clean and had relatively new furnishings. We were sad we did not get to try out the hot tub but it was very cold and raining so not too appealing. They had a manager's reception with some decent wine and the typical snacks. We had brought...

I needed directions back to the I-5. The staff that...

Stayed w our 3 kids on one Thursday night for our little trip to the snow. None of us slept very good, I don't know if it was the beds or what, but we were all tossing and turning. Sink was not draining very well. Carpets and flooring seem very old, could use updating. Not bad though for one night...

We are sorry that you have a poor night's sleep with your children for unknown reasons. I wish we could have helped in some way. We are pleased you enjoyed a great breakfast together. Although we check rooms daily, I will ask maintenance to verify all drains today.
