Too expensive for what you get

Cons: Nothing close, No free Internet
I thought the hotel was very expensive for what you get. The rooms are old and dark--kind of gross. It rained the day we were there, and there was absolutely NOTHING to do. The staff wasn't very friendly or helpful.

Huge misrepresentation

We purchased a deal for this "resort" that included two night's stay in a "Western themed room." What we got was an old hotel room that had not been updated in years that had stained mattresses and carpet, kitchen and bath cabinets that were damaged and falling apart, and little in the way of amenities. The photos on the "resort's" (and I use that term VERY loosely) web site are typically of the cabins and other accommodations that have been updated. The room we were given hasn't been updated in years. The photos on the website are so misleading it's pathetic. Unfortunately we arrived at a time after the Ranch had been closed for a week due to flooding. While we understand the staff had no control over this, nearly every staff member we interacted with was rude and nearly dismissive. The one great exception was David in the Saloon, who went out of his way to be friendly to and help all customers. I found it interesting when we checked out that they didn't even ask if everything was ok - it was like they already knew what our answer would be and didn't want to hear it. The old, outdated room aside, we DID enjoy the Saturday evening activities. The hayride and cookout were quite enjoyable, and it was fun to see a real rodeo. The petting zoo was also a fun area of the ranch to check out. The water level was so high that no boating was allowed, many of the trails were still soggy and impassable, and the "catch and release" pond was inaccessible. Again, we understand the Ranch had no control over this, but one would think that the Ranch staff would at least be apologetic rather than rude, and perhaps even offer other alternatives since so many activities weren't available. A few other points to note: * There is only one restaurant on the premises, and it closes at 8 pm. The Saloon serves peanuts and drinks but don't expect a meal there. * Although the web site claims they have high speed internet, it is only available in the "lodge," which is the area where you check in. If there is an event going on then there isn't an area to sit and work. * Don't expect to be able to use your phone; there is very limited signal throughout the Ranch. * Bring your own shampoo and conditioner, as none is provided in your room. Overall we ended up enjoying the Saturday evening activities, but we certainly wouldn't have paid what we did to stay in such an outdated and decrepit room. Additionally the Ranch needs to take a serious look at their web site and better represent what room you will ACTUALLY be staying in. Showing the cabins and rooms that have been updated is a very bad bait and switch tactic that will lead to more reviews like this.
