We arrived late to the hotel and there was a bus unloading a group of tourists when we arrived and we had to wait quite a long time to get to our room as the path was blocked by the bus. We went into our room and it was very sparsely furnished with no real amenities. There was no ice bucket or ice available and no hair dryer in the bathroom. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was done up in very nice tiles and heavy glass doors. But outlets were again very sparse to plug in electronic devices and we needed to charge our phones and camera. When we woke up the next morning the view was stunning with mountains all around us (we arrived in the dark). We went to eat breakfast at the restaurant on the property as it was included and there was no coffee and the food had been left with the covers off and was very cold and not fresh. The bacon was cooked very unevenly and some pieces were almost raw. The pancakes were pretty good but cold. Their explanation was that they had a tourist group and they had consumed everything. For the price of $163 per night I was very disappointed as we stayed at other hotels for less than half that price that had hot breakfast and lots of amenities. I will not be staying there again.

Motor inn room was recently renovated and clean. Hotel staff gave guests the wrong hours of the restaurant and grocery store which wasn't good because the restaurant closed 3 hours earlier than told.... And there wasn't any other options for miles. Pricey stay for the accomodations but visitors in the area have really no other choice. Staff were friendly though!

Comment from Hotel Management

Aug 24, 2019 by PR at David Thompson

Hi JR! We appreciate and acknowledge your concerns and comments, and hope that you had a wonderful stay here. We are truly sorry if our staff gave you the wrong hours. There are occasions in which the store will have to close earlier than expected due to limited items, or delayed shipments. The grocery store is open until 10pm everyday during peak season (June-August) As for pricing we strive to provide pricing that is competitive and indicative of the market average of hotels around the national parks. And lastly, we're glad all our staff were very friendly and helpful to you!!! Thank you for your time and comments, we greatly appreciative your business! Cheers
