We stayed here for 2 nights while on a two week road trip through California. Unfortunately our room was located right next to the stairs so it was VERY loud, although I think all of the rooms would have been just as loud.
There are signs in the hallways to be quiet but they don’t work. You can hear everything in your room. One night as we were laying in the dark trying to fall asleep listening to babies cry, people stomping up the stairs, people running down the hallway, opening doors, etc. We thought to ourselves it would be pretty funny to video the dark to show the black screen & all the noise happening.
The grounds of the hotel are very nice/summer campy feeling. There is a nice pond out front with chairs to sit in & kayaks/boats to use. There is a pool (never saw anyone use it so I’m not sure if isn’t heated or if people just weren’t interested) and a very large patio to just sit & enjoy the view.
The food is ‘included’ (you’re paying for it in the price so I’m not sure you can consider it free/included) The breakfast was much better than the dinner. They had hot coffee on “tap” all day long which was nice.
One down side is you can’t get lunch the day you arrive or the day you leave (unless you want to pay $10/lunch), so for a two night stay you’re only allowed one lunch. You need to tell the front desk the night before that you want lunch so they will have it ready for you the next day.
After driving around the two parks I would guess this is one of the best places to stay!
