Yes, I had seen a lot of not-happy-camper reviews, so I was just going to tough it out traveling with a tour group for a two-night stay to ride several railroads in the area. This was late September '13 and while there were some final signs of construction, the rooms were spanking new in decor, sheets, shower curtains, carpet, etc. There was a smaller motel-like structure to the left which someone said was the "old" place to stay. It's still there, but I don't know if they book rooms in it. Make sure you know which unit you want.
The dinner and breakfast buffet were well above average, and the wait staff very accommodating. Drinks purchased separately and served by the staff. Martini (decent) for $5.83. Wow! The bar and lounge were nearby and seem to have a crowd in there. View from 2nd floor was to the valley and hills. Nice. It did have a tiny balcony that accommodated two chairs. And, windows you can open. AC was quite. Bathroom super clean.
They are a conference center, so the corridor to the bar and restaurant houses several conference rooms which seemed to be occupied. Also, notices golfers were staying at the hotel.
It's hilly country, but I got the feeling that we were on a high level plateau since getting there was on winding roads that sloped upward for most of the trip. Would think arriving after dark would require careful driving and a good map/instructions. Allow enough time to get there.
