“Relax and enjoy the view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Located on the river, with its rapids and greenery, you can't help but relax and enjoy the area and the super friendly and professional staff. Breakfast served each morning is very enjoyable and saves a trip downtown.

Checked in to a non-smoking room and was greeted by the unpleasant smell and sound of a ozone purifier attempting to clean the air. The front desk staff failed to inform me the room had been vandalized by a smoker the day before. After I reported the problem to the front desk I was told me that they would remove the machine but I would have to put up with the smell. There was nothing else they could do for me.

The employees with the exception of the cleaning staff were not friendly and/or willing to assist their customers. They were not able to answer general questions with regards to the town for places to eat or even if the stores were open on Sunday. It felt like we were bothering them with any questions, etc. We were not able to eat breakfast at the hotel since the staff could not keep food out and there was no place to eat with customers eating in the lobby and standing. Not very organized not customer service.

Stayed 2 nights to be near a family event. Enjoyed the river in the morning and evenings. Would have enjoyed more time on the deck listening to the river sounds. Very pleasant. Good, clean (no frills) room. Would stay again if back in the area.

An annual family gathering was a most satisfying experience due to the great rooms, superior and helpful staff, and the fantastic views of the river from our room and the deck. Can't wait for next year!

Outstanding location! Mountains and river. Lobby, breakfast area, outside back deck were tops. A really tranquil surrounding except for coal hauling dump trucks and bring shampoo-we only got one bottle for three days. Really fancy-kept looking for the butler!!!
