This hotel will allow you to dodge a lot of tailback traffic on busy festival days by staying here the night before.
Best Western (the only other inn near-as-close to the festival) inflate their prices in festival season, so for ten bucks more you might as well have a jacuzzi and a private patio.
On weekends there are invariably weddings here, so be prepared for drunks. On the patio right next to yours. And they can smoke. This is by far the worst thing about this place for families.
Parking is also a big problem here. The layout is confusing. You may have to park a significantly far from your room. Arrive early unless you are confident parallel parking in the dark on dirt that is labelled "tow-away zone". Another big negative for me. And they dont tow, as you'll discover the next morning when tons of regulars are parked there.
Room service is average. Twenty minutes for extra towel delivery last night.
Rooms were clean. Beds are okay. I did not see any security at all, be aware.
I wouldnt bring my children here again
