Stayed here twice and will return. Why? Midweek price. I come to ski and need an inexpensive place to sleep. Carry my own towel, soap. Not here for all the amenities, only shower, bed, excellent heating system and free wifi. It is a two star hotel at a one star price. If you need a four star hotel, this is...

This is a pretty disgusting place. Bed cover had stains, room smelled like mildew, and there was human hair on the pillow case. I tried to take the bed cover off, but the blanket underneath it was even more disgusting, so I had to put it back. The shower is small, toilet is permanently yellow, wall behind the sink is...

Unfortunately, I had to cancel my reservation 30+ hours before my planned arrival, so I was charged 100% penalty as per hotel rules. I called an owner asking him nicely to move it to the next weekend compensating for any increases in room price if possible. An owner said that he has no rooms for the next weekend. I checked...

Pros: cute room with wood paneling, even on the ceiling. Clean, comfortable, big bed. Iron and small ironing board. Hot water is fast and pressure is strong. Fridge, microwave, coffee maker and decent wifi. Location to downtown is a decent walk, but not horrible. Cons: owner is a bit curt on check-in. Room is small. Towels are like thin dish...

Stayed only one night...Non smoking room reaked with cigarettes smell everywhere. They didn't offer me another room. Brown pillows from sweat hidden in pillow case. So disgusting. White towels had dirty spots and were rough with hair. Brought all towels for trade and receive more stained towels. Disgust... Carpet transition strips had nails popping up and that was very dangerous....

Room was clean, but small. Inside the room is like a log cabin. Bathroom is in dire need of a remodel. Overall not a bad experience and would stay again in a pinch. Free Wi-Fi and ice machine near office.

First time we stayed at this place. All hotels were booked so this was the best of the worst. The outside of the building is kinda deceiving rearguards to the cabin feel of the interior. The room decor reminds me of a place you might rent in Austria. The room was cute and for the most part it was pretty...

Stayed in the Queen suite. 3 queen beds in the room. The room was clean, clean sheets and towels as well. The duvets are stained, they could use a change. The bathroom was clean, and the water pressure was excellent. Our towels were replaced daily, and housekeeping kept it clean. I requested a room away from the road, so it...

Hotel owner was rude! I booked online through trip advisor and when I got there with my dogs,(online there's no mention about a $25 fee per dog) instead of using my cheaper booked room and just adding to my bill he booked me a new room, full price. I ended up paying twice as much as I originally thought. When...

There were so many gross bugs in our bed I looked under our pillow and saw a huge centipede. I flipped up the rest of the covers and saw 3 more bugs. Gross. Besides the nasty bugs in the place where we were supposed to sleep... On the last day, the manager was pounding on our door at 10:50 saying...
