We enjoyed our stay, but I was surprised after reading all the rave reviews to find this place is not as "excellent" as I hoped. It was very convenient for a short overnight stay although the noise from the highway at night and the noise of the neighbors when running water in their rooms as enough to disrupt our sleep. The rooms were clean but very basic. Our room had a few cable channels (15 maybe?) no vcr or dvd, no hairdryer or coffee pot. The front office did not open until 7:00 AM and served orange juice, coffee, hot water, tea bags, and locally made lemon poppyseed bread. It was nice but very limited and we could have used coffee much earlier as well as a light breakfast of toast or fruit for our toddler who is always hungry first thing in the morning and this place is quite a jaunt from a restaurant. Our room did not have a fridge or microwave. They were generous with the soap and shampoo which smelled nice. The comforters and pillows were abundant. Between the highway and the parking lot there is a small man-made pond with fish. The kids (ours and two other families) enjoyed feeding them from a cup of food given to them by someone at the front desk. We did not use the hot tub but my husband said it was indoors. There was an ice machine and a soda vending machine. It worked well for us because we just needed somewhere to crash-out on our way into Montana and it is located right before the turnoff for Hwy 2 that heads east into Montana. The staff were really friendly and helpful and the gift shop was cute. My son was particularly enthralled with the caged doves. The internet did not work well late at night and there was poor cell signal as well. During the morning hours the internet worked really well.
We would probably stay again if we needed somewhere to stay in order to break up the long drive but I found it limiting for us in many ways with a toddler: needing refreshment/food/snacks/coffee in AM, and the noise from the highway was disruptive at times. We liked many things about this place but I can't give it a four or five star for the reasons listed.
