We saw lots of places around $150 per night but thought we'd spend the extra $50 and try this place out given its good reviews and ratings. While it didn't exceed our expectations it did meet them comfortably so we were happy.

We are all very happy with this hotel. The rooms are very large. The bathroom is bigger than the last hotel room we stayed in while driving through this beautiful country. Large jetted tub, big shower. Bed is very comfortable, with lovely crisp sheets. Kitchen area with table. It's only downfall is it is far from the lake where all...
