Reviewed 8 July 2017

Unless you want to feel like you don't matter this is not a good place to stay. The room was dusty and the carpet had hair on it that wasn't ours. The sheets were discoloured to look at. There were no instructions for tv which we could not get to work. On the first evening we went to restaurant at 7.45and were asked if we could wait 25 minutes so we went to the bar for a drink. 35 minutes later the hostess came up and told us they would not be able to feed us after all as they were running behind in the kitchen. The owners son who was managing the bar and heard all this did not say a word to us. They even charged us for our drinks for our trouble. A friendly local who knew the owners said most other places were shut by now but he tried ringing one restaurant that he thought might be able to serve us. The manager should have been the one apologising and trying to help us particularly as we were staying at the lodge. The next evening having left our room and spotted one of the kitchen staff sitting outside biting his nails and other not so nice things we made a hasty retreat to another eatery.

Room was dirty and very worn. Permanent residents that are very shady hanging around. Tv only had two channels desk said it would be fixed in alittle while yeah right. Thought this was the worst I have seen in a long time. They need to bulldoze this place and start over.

We stayed one night, and as soon as we pulled up, it was not good. It was like a motel you'd see in a CSI episode. Full of residents who live there. Run down room, shower didn't work properly. Stay away!

Besides that they stole their name and even the logo idea from the amazing Gateway Canyons resort, this place is a DIVE filled with "residents" and the dregs of society. Don't even slow down, just drive right past and find somewhere else. I'd rather sleep in my car! I could not rate this place where it belongs, a big fat zero.
