This hotel has the basics, nothing special, rather spartan. I stayed here overnight on Feb. 8 because it was part of a travel package.
When I checked in to my room in late afternoon, I couldn't feel the heat. I tried to figure out the old-fashioned heater (it had 3 knobs), then I called the front desk and he sent maintenance right away. The heater worked fine after that, but it was too hot overnight and I slept on top of the bed. There is no thermostat or any way to determine the temperature of the room. The knobs, if they work, can be rotated to "warmer" or "cooler."
Shortly after checking in, I wanted to go out to dinner. I was disappointed that the staff was not knowledgeable about local restaurants and activities. Also, my friends and I wanted to catch the free shuttle/trolley into town. The clerk told us it ran every half hour, but when it didn't show up on time, I happened to read the schedule on the wall and it said the shuttle only runs on the hour after 5 p.m. Another clerk, who works part-time for the shuttle, suggested that the shuttle might not be running because of the poor weather that night. There were eight of us who had come up on a bus and had no cars and we were upset to think we couldn't get into the village for dinner. The clerk said the shuttle company had no office and no dispatcher, but she had a cell phone number for some of the drivers. At first, she seemed unwilling to help us, but later got in touch with someone. The shuttle came eventually, but as we discovered the next day, too, they aren't necessarily on time. However, they are free and it is a good idea to leave your car at the hotel and avoid the crowded parking lots and limited parking space downtown.
