My wife and I came for the week-end, to celebrate our anniversary. We were impressed by the location, and the staff was very friendly (typical of Oregon); but the high price did not get us the romantic getaway that we had planned. It seemed to us that there were just too many rooms in proportion to the indoor public spaces and to the capacity of the kitchen to serve meals (and other dining options are miles away). The lounge and the pool area was dominated by noisy children during most of out stay. On Friday night the dining room was seafood buffet (only!) and we chose to take our meal in the bar/grill. On Saturday night the wait for a table was 45 minutes - so we did room service, figuring that would be quicker than driving into Stevenson.
There was also a professional conference gathering going on, and I suppose that is more in line with this place's business model, and why they were resorting to "buffets" to try and get everyone fed.
Our room was nice enough, but only only at the level of a good motel. And puttingi in "honor" baskets with potato chips, candy bars, teddy bears and $4 bottled water - that's just tacky, and needs to stop. At $200 a night, it should be complimentary, or it should not be in my face.
Breakfast was fine, but ridiculously expensive. $13 plus for another "buffet," or seriously overpriced menu items. I might still have enjoyed the meal, but for the loud, obnoxious table of pierced and tatooed "alternate lifestyle" folks at a nearby table. One can't expect hotel staff to actually ask guests to behave themselves, can they? Could they?
Anyway, I suppose if you need a place to turn your kids loose while the hubby gets in a round of golf, this could work for you. But don't expect peace, quiet or an intimate setting.
