I used my points to stay here based on locations and reviews. I wouldn't stay here again.

Parking lot is ridiculously tight. Rooms are old and in need of repair. Paint pealing and damaged. Bathroom will haunt me. Broken, gouged tile; broken towel rack; toilet paper holder und

We will be arriving around 1:00 on Wednesday Nov 22, 2017. Can we go ahead and park there until our room is ready and we are able to check in that afternoon?
I'd call about checking in but as noted above if hotel parking is full there is par!ming nearby.

are u pet friendly?
I don't know if they are or they aren't but what I can tell you is I wouldn't take my pet even if they were. When I was checking in a bear walked by the window and I did a double take. I said a bear just walked by and they said they come by all the time. I went outside and the bear was eating from a trash can. We were on the second floor and when we finished unpacking and came out of our room the bear was eating from a trash can on the second floor. They have a ramp and the bear went right up the ramp to the second floor. Now don't get me wrong we knew about the bear when we checked in so we didn't have any problems. I just don't know how the bear would react to another animal close by.

"River rooms"
"Me, personally. I like a ground floor close to the parking lot. There was very little noise."
"Ask for a room over the river."
"124 has an awesome view. Keep the shades closed during the heat of the day to help it stay cool."
"some rooms have balcony overlooking creek"
