"Good quality. Room set up was very nice. Great location."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Housekeepers observed throughout facility, in and out of rooms, with no facemasks on at any point. Room was not as clean as I would expect from a hotel room, especially during a global pandemic. I cleaned the room and bathroom myself before unpacking for my week long stay. The location of the hotel was ideal, very relaxing and serene since it isn't close to the interstate or other commerce. I felt extremely safe as a lone traveler coming and going for work throughout the week. The bed and linens were very comfortable. Disappointed to find the onsite restaurants weren't open every day. This was one of the main reasons I chose this location; I didn't want to have to order out or worry about picking up or finding dinner options each day. I usually always select hotels that have meal/bar options inhouse. I should've researched the hours better prior to booking. Lastly, I was not aware that the casino was a smoking facility because I know that smoke carries. Unfortunately, even though I didn't enter the casino/restaurant area until my last night, all of my belongings have a strong smell of smoke and will have to be left out in the garage to air out for a few days.

upon check in, only one person checking in guests and answering phones.. although she was overwhelmed, she had a beautiful smile on her face and was patient. NOW, when we were checking out, that was a different story. no smile, not very friendly, I'm not sure she spoke 10 words to us.
