2/10 Poor

I booked and paid to stay at Rivers End, traveled 3 and half hours only to be told my reservation was over booked. I was moved to Econo Lodge. The accommodations were terrible and not worth the money I paid

Very enjoyable
We sat on the private patio in the dark and listened to the river. Then we turned off the AC unit and opened the door and listened to the river all night from bed. Slept awesome. The lady at the desk was nice too.
