Brand new units were very clean and comfortable and nice. BUT, when we arrived they informed us that they had E. coli in the water system and that you could not drink the water. They did give us an large bottles of water but I would’ve preferred to have my money back or at least for them to offer some sort of compensation. If you plan to stay here call ahead and make sure they have rectified the bacteria in the water

While there was a problem with E. Coli in the water during our stay but the office provided us with plenty of bottled water. Very peaceful setting but a bit out of town.

Enjoyed overall
Very clean, newer property. A bit out of town but only a 5 minute drive. Two things that could be easily improved - some kind of shelf space in the bathroom as there is no countertop around the sink, and softer pillows.

My wife and I had a car so we enjoyed that this hotel was a little bit out of town. The staff was nice and the rooms were new. The only issue we had with the hotel was the WiFi was very hit or miss so it made watching anything hard to do.

Disappointed and concerned
We enjoyed Franz Josef. Although clean an New we encountered two issues. When checking in we were informed that we couldn’t drink the water as it had tested positive for ecological because the well and sewage was too close together. Very alarming and a significant health issue. Second, the unit has one sink in bathroom which is only about 6 by 10 inches. Very difficult to use as bathroom plus to also function as a kitchen sink? Overall a disappointing stay. Worst of our trip.
