If anyone has any questions for this area I lived there 10 yrs plus. I still enjoy the area on a regular bases due to living so close and so many friends.
The only place I can say don't go Gateway Inn.
Friend of mine has a house for rent on Alder Lake that is very cheap for a great location - on water dock - couple of bed rooms for the same price as hotels.
Depends on what you want to do - Mt Climb - Horseback ride EZ Times Horse Rentals - Great and well worth the money......
I can give insight for whatever experience you would like to have.
