Very dirty. Dust on almost every surface, dust gobs hanging off the ceiling. In room coffee maker was disgusting dirty, lipstick marks from previous people on the coffee cups 🤮 Lifted up the spare pillow in the front entrance of room and found a dirty empty beer bottle. Bath tub looks like someone died in it. Just disgusting.

Stayed two nights and was very happy with the inn. The rooms were very clean and large with space to move. The service was great and the breakfast that was included was wonderful! would stay again. Price was lower than most an added bonus

On arrival the receptionist was friendly and helpful however as we entered our room the overpowering smell of disinfectant was very off putting. We needed to leave the bathroom fan on to at least make the room bearable to be in We booked this hotel as it offered a bar and restaurant when infact there is no bar. There is a beer menu - which looked as if it had been left in a puddle of beer - we ordered beer and asked to look at the wine menu thinking we would have a bottle of wine with our meal. The wine menu equally looked tatty and unprofessional. We were then told that there was not a bottle of any type of wine available. We decided to stick with beer We were harassed to make our meal order, the quality of the food was excellent however the gravy came in a chipped container and also one of our plates was chipped. Really !!!! this is meant to be a quality establishment Before my husbands plate was taken away our bill was on the table no offer of desert we actually wanted to finish our meal with coffee/spirit which we asked for and got. Exceptionally disappointed we were made to feel an oddity as we wanted to sit an enjoy an evening of drinks and food in a relaxed atmosphere. I would not recommend this hotels restaurant for ambiance or relaxation as the title says completely disappointed

Stay at the Tamarack Inn in Rocky Mountain House Mixed review We stayed in the Tamarack for two nights. When we arrived on Friday night and the first thing I noted was that the lobby was dated, and the place smelled like pineapple air freshener. The chairs in the lobby are ragged and dirty. They should be replaced immediately as they and give a terrible first impression. The hotel staff issued us a room in the basement. It was dark, dated, and dreary. The carpet was stained in several places and it smelled. We asked for another room and we were moved upstairs to a better room. The carpet was cleaner, and the beds were comfy, the sheets and pillows were good, and the place was quite clean. The bathroom had some updates, but the towels were worn and rough. I wondered why they would put us in the basement if they had nicer rooms available upstairs? We had supper in the restaurant, and it was surprisingly good. Our server was a high school girl who was so sweet. Our friends arrived later and checked in, only to be given a room with stained carpets and no updates in the bathroom. This dragged down the appearance of the room. The next morning, we had a free breakfast in the restaurant. Bacon, eggs and hash browns. It was very good. My assessment of this hotel is mixed. This hotel has nice staff and the rooms are well priced. The staff tries to keep the hotel clean, but the wear and tear are obvious, and it needs a major overhaul. I would not stay here again, but I would eat in the restaurant. If you don’t mind taking your chances on a room and if you like the smell of pineapple, this is the place for you.

Both dinner and breakfast were WAY above average. The breakfast was included in the rate and was individually made and served ... just like in a regular restaurant. Place have a "olde time" feel, which is rare to find these days. I liked it!
