    The only thing we really liked about the room was the fact that we had a creek side room, it was nice listening to the water and seeing that view. The room wasn’t bad, just dated, but we did find a couple of hairs here and there which was gross. The tv was small, and we had to ask for an iron. Parking is very limited and can be quite an inconvenience, we lucked out in getting a spot right in front of our room. Staff was friendly and helpful. Overall it was ok but most likely won’t stay there again.

    Location is everything.

    Location, location, location! Price reflects the dated condition of the rooms but you can't beat the location for the price. The pools and hot tub were clean and nice and open until 11 pm which is great. The staff is friendly and helpful. There is no cleaning service due to covid. Parking lot by the main pool doesn't allow for you to turn around so be prepared to back out if you go back there. There is a mini fridge in the rooms and a microwave in the lobby I believe. Five minute walk or so to the strip in the heart of everything!

    Unhappy Customer. Don't Stay here

    Pictures are deceiving. The pictures of the rooms online are not what you will be staying in. Our room was gross and dirty. The carpet was wet when we arrived and was wet our entire stay. The room smelled musty. There were cockroaches in our room. Very unhappy. Would not recommend.

    Wonderful place for families or couples

    I really loved the atmosphere of this hotel. Family friendly but privacy for the rooms and balconies. Very scenic stream off the back and indoor and outdoor pools. I really liked staying here.

    Not what it seems

    I don’t mind staying in an out dated room but our door was missing our security lock, the plug-ins didn’t want to hold the cords, the front door and the bathroom doors were tore up and when I went to try another outlet which was behind the night stand it was filthy. When we got back to our room mid day the maid was cleaning the room beside ours so when we opened the door to our room it was still not cleaned. No biggie since we didn’t really need it cleaned but we thought our room would be next and we would just tell her no need to clean the room we would just need clean towels and washcloths but she never came by. The big black trash bags she threw over the balcony as we were walking to our room will still there the next day. A lot of street noise and it was very lit which lit our room up all night. For the price we paid and the pictures we seen online we expected a little bit better service and a cleaner room.

    Syndney Mountain Lodge Stay

    Our stay was great and the staff were friendly and professionally; however the building appears to just be maintained but need a lot of updating.

    Summer Family Trip

    The hotel is nice and the pools are great! We had a creek side room which I recommend. No maid service during your stay which was fine but there are a lot of little bugs but with water (creek) right there that was expected. The only thing that is bad is parking. Very short on parking and tight spaces. If you have a large vehicle good luck
