I made our reservation 5 months in advance. "All our rooms are available and are the same price, which one would you like?" "Since I am not familiar with your establishment I will ask you to select your best room for me.:" Well - they didn't. Our room was nice but by no means the best. Two rooms on our floor were open and unused that had full bathrooms instead of the cubbyhole bath we had. The heat would not adjust so we had to turn on the window unit air conditioner. On the plus side the room was clean.
We arrived after dark and there was no outside lighting in the parking area. We could hear a dog barking quite nearby but with no lights could not see where danger might be.
The breakfast lived up to the reviews and reputation but the facility is in need of work. When I return to Bethel I will pick another option.
