    Bugs bugs bug
    the hotel was in an amazing spot and is really nice. We had trouble with the lock on our door and it took 2 people to fix it and then we couldn't get back into the room when we came back. We had ants and bugs in our bath tub and bath room. They came in and sprayed but it was worse the second day. Spray does not fix cracked/missing caulking.

    Love it
    I love this hotel! It is worth the money and then some. Rooms directly over the creek, so peaceful. Great desk service. Everything you could need in a room except a microwave, which they have up front you can use. And I'd love if they had at least a continental breakfast. The best pool as hot tub ever.
