Perhaps as an RV site or campground this is a good place to stay, but as a hotel/motel, it is not! Upon our arrival, our check-in was rushed because the attendant on duty was more interested in going home for the night than getting us settled in. The grounds are dark and finding our room was a bit of a challenge. We specifically spoke to the attendant about wireless internet availability and he confirmed it was available for a few. However, he neglected to tell us that we needed to purchase a userid and password from him. By the time we found this out, the office was closed and he was long gone. I wish that was my only concern. While the room was clean and functional, there is no HVAC. No problem, expect there is no way to latch the screen door, so basically, you're sleeping all night with the door open to get some air and the ability for anyone to just walk right into your room. Huh? Also, the outside light was not working, so getting the key into the sliding door lock was quite a challenge.
