Our family had this trip planned and was looking forward to it, but never expected the warmth and friendliness we found at Quails Crossing. George was very accomodating. We looked into many other places that were more touristy, but found our way back to Quail's Crossing every time. With all of the amenities, not one place could compare. George took 5 of our 7 children out to learn to pan, some got a few garnets and one lucky girl a dot of gold. He took time to teach them to do this even knowing that he had a prior appt. The pool was VERY clean, I NEVER saw a pool vacuum in sight working while our children were swimming. In fact, I don't think that would ever be allowed on this property as safety and cleanliness are one thing I believe George can take pride in on his property of many accomodating places to stay. Given that he had 15+ bikes to use for FREE, and pans to go panning, bike helmets and free trail passes, fishing poles, and many other items that our family used was awesome. When we went to cook outside, the shock of free charcoal and lighter fluid...WOW...then another happy of having long skewers for hot dogs and marshamallows over a campfire...this is the place I would not only recommend, but also intend on making this a regular family trip.
Inside our motel suite which had EVERYTHING we could possibly need, it was clean and very updated. Our beddings were clean neat and fluffy! We rented a DVD player to use with the very nice flat screen across from our 2 out of 3 sleeper sofa beds. Our kids played during the day and rested cozy at night watching dvd's that George provided in the office. I cannot explain how filled with amenities our family was provided with so we could stay happily enjoying our family and bringing us all together. We did roam all across the area to see Mt. Rushmore, and other points of interest, but all of us couldn't wait to get back and hang and play like families so forget to do at times.
I read about some negative testimonials that actually made me upset, when you rent a place, agreements are made, and everything was provided for to cleanup any mess that could have possibly been made. I can't imagine anyone not getting a deposit back unless you think you are wanting maid service (which is provided for a fee if you can't clean up after yourself). This is a great value for a couple to a very large family like ours. There are no complaints here, only smiles!!! We will return on a regular yearly basis if our time allows....Thanks George!!!
