This hotel has the best view in town! Hotel has been there many years and the outside could use some cleaning and refurbishing. Room was clean, sheets were perfectly white and clean, mattress was clean with no spots or stains. Shower on 3rd floor had great pressure and nice shower head, faucets had been replaced and were shiny and spotless. The price is better than most other locations in the area. I enjoyed my stay and will return.

Room Tip: Front side of hotel has the wonderful view, have never stayed on back side.

The view from mountain was beautiful. But the room and hotel was run down. Door lock was backwards and hard to open. Light fixture in bathroom close to shower exposed to elements. Most places we have stayed. Breakfast was till 10 am. Not here. 9am. Room was clean but aged look. Old TV. So forth.

Starting off positively, the view was fantastic!! The bed was wonderful and sheets were fresh. I don't like the policy of using a top sheet as a fitted sheet (it doesn't stay on well), but I slept very well. It did take the AC a little bit to kick in, but the temperature was nice.

We book the hotel on line, and was given a 3rd floor room. When I asked for a fist floor, I was told it was not possible with the online booking. There is an elevator, so ok. The third floor room had a very broken chair and the freezer had mold around the edges and in it. When I brought that to the front desk, where was a sudden opening in a first floor room. That room was ok. Mismatched chairs are no biggie to me. The fridge needed a bit of defrost--looks like someone spilled water in it and it froze to the bottom. The outside of the fridge needs dusting on side and back too.

Breakfast was ok. Sausage gravy and biscuits, egg "patties" (precooked egg rounds), donuts, cereal and the like. Coffee was good. Signs saying do not take anything out of breakfast area was a little off-putting.

Loved the noon check out. We took our time.

The pool looked nice, but we did not use it.

We got what we paid for in all.

Hotel has updated sense I was here in 93, very small tables in the room and the shower stops up,
When ur at the pool they send someone out here every 30mims to make sure ur staying here and u dont want to tell them the room cause no name tag,
But over all $50a night couldn't be any worse than others out there
