They market themselves as being rustic and charming, but shoddy is not the same as rustic and beyond the charming setting, at least in the "lodge" units, there is nothing charming about a motel room with small scratchy bath towels you have to leave the shower area to find, a light in the bathroom too dim to do a crossword puzzle by, a solitary waste basket in the vanity area for the entire unit, a toilet seat that is only attached on one side and slides around when you sit on it, no luggage racks, no fridge, no phone, no wifi, no TV. (They market these last items as a plus so one can "get way from it all.")
I'm content in rooms like this @ $50 or $60. At $130 before taxes, I find myself noticing what all is wrong with a place, and in this establishment there was plenty.
I didn't rate it terrible, because it isn't terrible. The beds were comfy. With the window open a bit one could enjoy the babbling river. The hot water worked. As a stop along the highway for a reasonable price, no problem; or it would have been just fine for the money in the heart of a major city, but 40 miles from Yakima? In my opinion we paid double what this place should cost.More
