Clean, quiet rooms in National Park setting. An oscillating fan was the only cooling needed. Remote, beautiful wilderness. Should be better when restaurant and entrance are completed. Food truck type menu was available and grocery store offered hot pizza. Food prices were high in my...More

Minimal but adequate amenities. No air conditioning. Restaurant was being rebuilt, but a decent food truck service was available. Morning buffet ($10/adult) was carb-loaded and packed.
