    Very large space. Whole kitchenette to cook in, living room area plus bedroom. Tv's in living area and bedroom.

    They said they were pet friendly online, but the first thing they said when checking in was your pet is not allowed on any furniture/bed and if any hair was found at checkout there could be a $100 fine. I was 4 hours from home and didn't bring a kennel as i don't crate my dog, and it didn't say this on their website. I would've come more prepared had i known, or booked elsewhere since I've never been told this at a "pet friendly" hotel before.

    What my wife and I liked about this place is that the rooms are very quite. The added kitchenette is an added bonus if you don't want to go out to eat. Though the appliances are older, they all work fairly well for what you need to do. For me personally the Queen Room layout was nice, it allows you to have the bedroom separate from the kitchen area. Thus allowing my wife to sleep and me to be able to sit on the sofa, have some popcorn and watch tv. Just a little added touch to make you feel like home. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about the surrounding area. Told us a couple ski areas that were close by that we didn't even know about. I'm sure we'll be back soon for hopefully a little longer stay next time.

    For our stay there was only a couple things that we didn't like. First off for myself was the bed. It's a older spring mattress that is pretty firm. My wife didn't seem to mind it and slept well, but for me after a long day of driving I was hoping for a little softer of a bed. The other issue we both had was the parking lot, for myself driving a full size truck makes it a little more difficult turning around to leave throughout the day. The lot is an "L" shape and somewhat narrow on the south side of the property. Thus was the side in which our room was one, but with the main entrance being wider, I was able to just back into your parking spot. My wife's issue was the bushes in front of some of the parking spots. Her issue was that it made it harder to unload and load our vehicle because in order to get the passenger side at the time you have to walk around 3 spots or so in order to get to the side walk due to these bushes. For me I didn't seem to mind, no matter which was I was parked into our spot. Maybe just a trimming in the spring is all I would add.
