Everything was nice EXCEPT that June is Mayfly season, what a mess, and if you want to sleep in, FORGET IT, at 0730-0800 every morining you will awake to the wonderful sound of a leaf blower right outside your door for the next several hours. Why you ask? Because the mayflies are all over EVERYTHING and they use the leaf blowers to clean off the walkways, the building, everything!! They also leave the outside lights OFF after dark, because of the mayflies, so take a flashlight with you if you think you'll be outside wandering around the property after dark. Also, even though "quiet time" is 11PM - 700AM, be prepared to stay up late, as there is no one in the office there after 10-11 PM and for some reason, some people feel the need to TALK VERY LOUDLY, so if an issue does come up, there is no one at the front desk to call. The restaurant right next door has good food(the homemade rootbeer is not the greatest, but the fish dinner is really good). The walls between rooms are paper thin so keep that in mind. All in all, not a bad place, just go some other month besides June.
