I was tired when I booked this hotel and was almost going to click on Crown Plaza and saw one little review that said hard bed at Crown Plaza. I was over it that fast.
I had never heard of this small chain, but every single hotel in America needs to figure it out like they have. It is about the BEDS!
They are right off the freeway and by a train track that is true, but never once heard either. This is a unique little place that surprised my husband, Shawn, and I. While waiting in a small line, we could see the hotel is not like any we have been in before.
It is a two story hotel with an enclosed courtyard, with waterfall, koi pond and several hot tubs. Some upstairs rooms have balconies with patio furniture that face the koi pond, with koi so big it looks like they have eaten well for a while.
Check-in went great, they were really friendly to us and I had requested a lower floor because I read they had no elevator. I also asked for a quiet room because some reviews online said it could get loud. There are rooms that face the pond/waterfall and trees, which it is lush looking, for sure and others that are right behind those in a hallway.
We walked around the pond area and saw they have several hot tubs tucked into corners, like you are in a little cave and each one had a patio table with umbrella... you go Billing's MT. The pool was towards the back and on the other side of a big glass wall and more hot tubs in there. On the way back we saw a door tucked back into the rocks and saw it was a game room. Sheer cool factor made me want to go game right then and there.
Impressive, for $108 a night. We get to the room, and it has a leather lazy-boy chair in there and flat screen 42" tv that has a fair amount of good channels. We both laughed when we opened the largest mini fridge in the history of hotel rooms, complete with crisper drawer. Yeah, in case you are missing the salads at home I guess. But really impressed. The microwave was above it.
The room was spotless but we had not hit the bed yet but once we did, it was a five star slam. We talk about the beds at the River Rock Casino being the best hotel bed ever. The ones they sell you for $1600. This bed was actually better than that, and I didn't think it was possible. Who would have thought the little chain hotel by the rail road tracks would deliver like that?! I wish they were sprinkled liberally throughout, but it seems they are mostly in Montana and Wyoming.
It was hard to get out of that bed to go eat the included breakfast, but they had a cute little set up. They had french toast with real hot maple syrup, four kinds of juices, boiled eggs, oatmeal, fruit and yogurt cups. You can take a tray and take it to your room, if you don't want to sit on a patio table in the lobby. The counters are right in the courtyard and so that put one of the rooms along side it. This could be good or bad if you booked that room; one the noise might be bad 4 feet from the service counter or awesome because you only walked 4 feet to get an all you can eat breakfast.
If you don't like the sound of the small breakfast, Denny's is literally right outside the door and looked pretty new.
