Came here with my girlfriend for our 2 year anniversary. Loved the room! We stayed in the Regal (in the Inn area). The hot tub was nice, loved the shower that has the top and the sides going on at the same time. The bed was a king sized that was nice and soft. And I really liked the fireplace.... More

From the photos the exterior looks like a strip-mall motel but the room we had in the Lodge was very clean and cutely theme decorated. The dining room is lovely, serving good food (we just had breakfast) from typical breakfast to more healthy versions (enjoyed the sweet potato kale hash).
