The room was beautiful and clean - excellent. I cannot imagine anyone being disappointed with this hotel. The front desk is truly a bait and tackle store and a very nice one. They sell smoked fish which seems to be very popular. We bought some of the sugar cured smoked trout and were more than 100 miles away, unfortunately, when we realized we should have bought more. I would have bought the whole supply had I tried it before leaving! The service was also excellent. We had called right as they were closing and they arranged for a key pickup and had the room ready (turned on the A/C for us since it had been 95 all day!). At first I thought they were being too particular (worrisome) but I am positive now that they were actually just being super helpful. We were just on the road but the place was nice enough to make me think about staying an extra day.
