6/10 Good

Needs improvement
First, I'll give a few positives: amenities of in-room coffee, refrig and microwave, which are pretty much the expected standard in modern travel. A/C worked well, both cool & heat. Problems: They still use "old school" key, rather than card, which would be fine EXCEPT for 1 thing - there is nobody in office except for hours 3-9 PM, so upon departure, you drop key in outside open/unsecured box.. Very dangerous, as anybody could take key, make copy and enter your room whenever to do whatever. And if you arrive after 9 PM (which fortunately I didn't) you have to go about 5 miles back to the Western Holiday Lodge (owners own both) to get a key (they do tell you this via email upfront, but this is not a good business practice). Next, the shower in Room 6 is leaky, very difficult to get the control knob in just the right position to stop it. Next, WiFi very balky & slow, cuts out repeatedly, esp at certain hours (late afternoon and evenings, not so much very early AM). Next, no towels in room, only a wash cloth and bath mat. Office clerk did provide some promptly. Told him I wouldn't require daily cleaning since I had everything I needed except for couple extra coffee packets, which he provided (no problem with him personally, he provided items needed). Was informed that they usually didn't clean daily, which some travelers may not like & makes you wonder about their maintenance overall. Won't stay again unless these matters resolved.

2/10 Poor

The WORST Hotel Experience Ever!
This is the worst hotel experience I have ever had. For a week prior to my stay, I tried calling to get info on our booking. No one picks up when you call. Even with that, we drove 3 and a half ours to get there. No one was at the property when we arrived. Rooms were left open. Hotel looked abandoned. We almost left. The person checking people in arrived 45 mins late. When we finally got the key and opened up the door to our room, to our disgust, the room had not been cleaned. Beds undone, bathroom dirty, trash in the room. The amenities they mention, BBQ grill etc. A rusted piece of garbage. THE WORST!

4/10 Fair

This place is not worth it.
I felt unsafe, the room that was given to us was the biggest one. It had a kitchen and sitting area. But right when you walk in, you had a gut feeling something bad happened there. The place was dirty and when I wanted to change my mind and cancel the room. The Man wasn’t there anymore he left and no one else was there but the nice cleaning lady. So I left and went somewhere else and have to file my refund online because the number they provide to me doesn’t answer either.
