The theme rooms for couples are very romantic and fun way to get a way or to celebrate your wedding anniversary. The hearts in our room made our 5th wedding anniversary extra special. The rooms are clean and modern. The heart shaped hot tub and heart shaped bed were an awesome experience!

We have stayed here 3 other times, but this time was very disappointing. The room was not clean. The packets for the coffee accessories was open and had part of the items missing. The toilet had urine on the underneath of the seat, the toilet and the floor at the base. The jacuzzi tub had oil in it. Went to...

My boyfriend and I had previously stayed at another hotel years ago that had fantasy suites that we did utilize and had a lot of fun doing so, so my boyfriend thought he would surprise me and see what was around this area for fantasy suites just for something different to do on a Friday night. Thus he did find...

Nice theme especially for us since we were missing the snow we love this winter. Whirlpool was nice and the shower was one of the best I have found in any hotel. Check in was quick and easy. Breakfast was typical continental nothing special but decent.

By boyfriend surprised me with a winter get-a-way weekend and he got us the Northern Nights room. The room was so awesome...round, like an igloo! It has a jacuzzi tub, a sauna, a frig, radio/cd player, a flat screen tv w/dvd player on the top of an electric fireplace, a shower big enough for two, with multiple jets on both...

We stayed in the designer room, crystal cave for my husband's birthday. Nicely decorated but it had a smell to it which wasn't seriously pungent, just strange. An hour into our stay we decided to enjoy the whirlpool. Believe it or not there wasn't even enough hot water to get the whirl pool filled. We contacted front desk twice and...

The first impression was unfortunately a smell of mold in the lobby. Then once we walked down the hall upstairs we could smell smoke outside our nonsmoking room. The worst part was the bed. It was as hard as sleeping in a sleeping bag on the floor. I was really hoping for better accocmodations for 89 dollars.

The king room was underwhelming but the cleanliness and housekeeping made up for it. There was no mildew and the bathroom had toilet paper already on the roll- not empty- and small hand soaps decorated the bath towel on the tub. The price was very affordable and the continental breakfast, included in the room price, was larger than I anticipated....

The Crystal Cave saw great. You start out figuring out the lighting, which was a little daunting. But once you get them figured out the fun begins. We didn't get time to try the sauna, due to too much time relaxing in the hot tub. The bed is very nice and round (kinda tough to get out of though), and...
