Very large room - we rented the large studio. This was much larger than we expected. Great to have a sofa to watch the tv from. Arrived very late because of flooding and the owner happily kept the reception open for us. Lots of storage space. One of the best motels we stayed in.
We booked the room over the internet. The room we had said it came with a view of the glacier. Luckily we had already seen on the net that the 'view' was a tiny patch of glacier that you could see out of 1 window. If we hadn't we would have been very disappointed with the view.
Only small negative was that the hot plate hadn't been properly cleaned.
