Room was clean and well furnished. The price was reasonable and staff very friendly. The breakfast in the morning was very good as well. We don’t go to the area often but definitely would choose to stay here again if we do.
We had a travel zoo voucher for the off season, so thought it was a great idea. We did have a lovely time, despite the tiny and somewhat dumpy room (we were only in there to sleep).
But a couple weeks later decided it was no deal after all, when we discovered we had brought home more than we bargained for in the way of bed bugs!! Gross...
I realize this can happen anywhere, from the Ritz to the Econo-lodge, but still... The room was not dirty, but that does mean anything either. And yes, we're 100% positive this is where the bed bugs came from.
That being said, the resort itself was great the village was very convenient, especially with a young kiddo. Also close to hiking areas.
