My boyfriend and I had previously stayed at another hotel years ago that had fantasy suites that we did utilize and had a lot of fun doing so, so my boyfriend thought he would surprise me and see what was around this area for fantasy suites just for something different to do on a Friday night. Thus he did find... More

Nice theme especially for us since we were missing the snow we love this winter. Whirlpool was nice and the shower was one of the best I have found in any hotel. Check in was quick and easy. Breakfast was typical continental nothing special but decent.

By boyfriend surprised me with a winter get-a-way weekend and he got us the Northern Nights room. The room was so awesome...round, like an igloo! It has a jacuzzi tub, a sauna, a frig, radio/cd player, a flat screen tv w/dvd player on the top of an electric fireplace, a shower big enough for two, with multiple jets on both... More

We stayed in the designer room, crystal cave for my husband's birthday. Nicely decorated but it had a smell to it which wasn't seriously pungent, just strange. An hour into our stay we decided to enjoy the whirlpool. Believe it or not there wasn't even enough hot water to get the whirl pool filled. We contacted front desk twice and... More

The first impression was unfortunately a smell of mold in the lobby. Then once we walked down the hall upstairs we could smell smoke outside our nonsmoking room. The worst part was the bed. It was as hard as sleeping in a sleeping bag on the floor. I was really hoping for better accocmodations for 89 dollars.

The king room was underwhelming but the cleanliness and housekeeping made up for it. There was no mildew and the bathroom had toilet paper already on the roll- not empty- and small hand soaps decorated the bath towel on the tub. The price was very affordable and the continental breakfast, included in the room price, was larger than I anticipated.... More

The Crystal Cave saw great. You start out figuring out the lighting, which was a little daunting. But once you get them figured out the fun begins. We didn't get time to try the sauna, due to too much time relaxing in the hot tub. The bed is very nice and round (kinda tough to get out of though), and... More

We stayed a night in one of the Fantasy Suites -Crystal Cave. This whole suite looks like a cave inside. It has a microwave, fridge, stereo/cd, dvd player, fireplace, personal sauna, huge walk-in shower with 2 waterfalls plus 6 shower heads and a bench. There is also a large hot tub in the main area of the suite with 3... More

My husband and I paid $225 for a fantasy suite for our one year anniversary. The "suite" is no bigger than a regular room, and simply has themed furniture. A HUGE disappointment for the price. We will not be getting one again... we could have stayed somewhere similar for much cheaper.
