Comfy beds, great views & dead deer
The service was great. The food in the restaurant was quite good for a ski lodge. The views from the restaurant & bar are beautiful & you can see all the way to the Mississippi River. This property has 4 floors but no elevator. The bathrooms are very small & outdated. It was hunting season & there were no less than 8 harvested, gutted deer on the back of their vehicles parked 50 feet from the front door. It would’ve been nice if the hotel forced them to park in a specific area, maybe at the back end of the lot, away from the front door as the parking lot is huge.

Perched high on a Mississippi bluff the views were outstanding at this time of year with the leaves changing. My room on the 4th floor had a great view of the river and slopes. The room was nice and the bed was very comfortable. The dining room has great views and there are great outdoor seating options that overlook the river valley. The down side of this property is that the halls and common areas need a lot of updating and cleaning. Also, an elevator would be a good addition.
