I had booked a room for two adults for myself and a friend. We needed two beds. When I arrived, I was told the hotel was full so they had to put us in a room with a king bed. What is the point of purchasing a room with two beds weeks ahead of time if they are going to change it without consult? They must have assumed we were a couple and only needed one bed. They had my phone number on file and could have called first to check. Extremely disappointed.

The room was pretty dirty, like it hasn’t been deep cleaned. The couch had stains and the bathroom walls had some somethings.

The hotel is hidden away off any main streets so it is pretty quiet. I was only there one night, so I didn't get to experience the firepit and walking trail area outside. The suite is very spacious and I liked having a living room area, office area and bedroom area. The only negative is that the pool was closed for maintenance and the staff didn't really seem to care that I cared about that. It would have been nice for the lady at check-in to acknowledge that maybe guests chose the hotel for that amenity and apologize for the inconvenience, maybe offer a discount on a future stay or something. Something to make the customer feel special. But no. The breakfast was very nicely presented and I liked the choices: fruit, eggs, sausage, oatmeal, yogurt, and a variety of breads.

Overall good. The only downside was that there was no staff picking up my call from the airport. Maybe they were busy early in the morning. We ended up taking a taxi.
