8/10 Very good

Cozy and Friendly Place!
The hotel provided flexibility to split into another room. We arrived around dinner time and they had a delicious fish stew buffet with lots of veggies and a salad. The staff were all super friendly. The breakfast was also very hearty and they provided baggies in case you wanted to pack a light sandy snack for when you are exploring the area. A very cozy family feel, great for large groups!

Recommend Overall
I have mixed, but overall positive, impressions of this lodging. We were disappointed after a long drive to not be able to check in until >1-1/2 hours after the time advertised, but understand that there were special circumstances for that day. We were also disappointed to find that wifi didn't reach our room; staff did offer to change our room, but our room (in the first red building) was significantly roomier, had more character, and overall seemed "nicer" than the alternative one showed to us in the main building. We did dine in the restaurant for their buffet and really enjoyed the variety and quality of what was offered. We also very much appreciated that the staff were willing to do a load of laundry for us, as that was a challenge during most of our trip. So, overall I do recommend this lodge, and its food, in this sweet little out-of-the-way town.
