This is not the kind of lodge you would want to stay on your family vacation time. The picture you see of this place is EXACTLY the OPPOSITE of the actual picture. The smell of the place, the matresses, the floor, and the bathroom- it's not the kind of place you would want to see and stay with your family. It is so dirty.

It didn't take us more than a minute two figure out how terrible this place is. The "suite" is merely just an extra bed thrown in a slightly bigger room. Everything is practically stained. There was dirt everywhere on the floor, the walls were dirty, the sheets were dirty, there was even flies in the bathroom! And a price of $300 to fit 7? Trust me, you're better off sleeping in your car.

'Pet Friendly'? They let the dogs out because 'someone' complained the dogs were barking. These were well behaved, AKC registered dogs. The had successfully contacted the sister-in-law once about the dogs, instead of contacting her the second time, the Manager opened the door and let the dogs out. Bear was hit by a car and killed. I'll sleep in my car first, thank you.

nasty, dirty, and EXPENSIVE motel...friends of mine had their poor little dog killed when the jerk low-life manager took it upon himself to enter the room and their little dog got out, ran outside, and was hit and killed by a car!! What a terrible, horrific experience and this is a pet friendly hotel??? AVOID this slum hole at all costs, if not just because its a filthy, dirty, crack head motel, then do it for justice for bear!!!!!! Thank you!!! AVOID!! AVOID!! AVOID!! AVOID!! AVOID!! AVOID!!!
