    A good place to stay. They did a good job hosting the conference. The room was clean and check in and checkout was easy. I would have no complaints about scheduling another conference there or staying there again.

    Excellent, It was my first time there and I really enjoyed it. Only thing was the Lodge room was very cold for the conference. I think they were working on it but we were quite cold especially Sat morning
