    Not quite as pictured
    I was a little disappointed to arrive at this hotel and find I was not staying in the building that was pictured on It appeared to be a gorgeous modern black building. That building existed, but was not where I was put for the night. There is a second building attached to the restaurant that is nothing like I had expected at all. The views from this building were also really not very good at all, I had to ask to be moved to another room so I wouldn't be facing farm equipment. The staff WAS really friendly and helpful, which I appreciated. Overall though, I was looking for a retreat experience, and I drove for quite some time to get there, and to stay in the beautiful hotel pictured. That's not quite what I got.

    You can do better!
    Incredibly small austere room with small window in the corner, that opened by the main entrance. TV out of order, only one night stand and lamp. No towel bar or shelf in bath. Tea kettle but not a single tea bag. No place to put luggage or hang clothes. Skip this one, you can do a lot better in this area. Overpriced and inconsiderate of guests needs.
