As many of the recent posts also say...the reviews had us worried...but the hotel was great! Nice, clean rooms...great location...and very friendly staff. I traveled there with 3 other (gay) friends...and my Mom, Sister and her family joined us from BC - everyone had a great time. Would definitely stay there again.
