Very friendly owner, recently purchased property. The swimming pool and spa were shut down and the room could use a little remodeling but the manager warmed my heart. Very kind and honest man. He was helpful and I would stay at this hotel again!

The Wi-fi did not...

We booked online a room package that included 2 tickets on the gondola. We called the day prior to check in to be told it doesn't exist. No options provided.
