A Little Pricey for the Room Size
We stayed during the summer so there was NO ONE there. Given that we were the only guests we wonder why we were given a room that had the AC/heater mechanism next to the room. No Kleenex. 1 hanger in closet. Only 2 drawers for clothes. The down comforter was too hot; without it, too cool. Probably fine for skiers but don't bring much. No equipment allowed in the room.

4/10 Fair

TV was so old as to be almost unviewable. Offsite check in and poor instructions in how to access hotel. Nice place "in season" but a hassle otherwise.
