My honest opinion
The room door had a gap under it that you could stick you hand under. There was construction going on under us. The beds were rock hard and the ice machine didn't work outside. Service was done but we ran out of toliet paper had to go to the front desk to get more. Feet would be dirty walking on the floors after a shower. Noisy neighbors slamming doors at 3 in the morning. I wouldn't stay here again not worth the price we paid for the room.

2/10 Poor

This was by far the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The showers were dirty, There was used towels from someone left there that were not of the color the hotel uses. The phone in the room didnt work nor did the internet. The room had a fireplace yet had to purchase wood from the office and the wood did not work so needless to say NO FIRE. The king size bed seemed like it was going to break with any type of movement and when we woke up there was roaches on the floor next to the bed and they were huge. I am highly disappointed and will never stay there again.

private/not private balcony
Our stay was nice. The room was ok. The bed was comfortable. Towels and linens were clean. Balcony was dark and musty smelling. It did over look a creek, but it also overlooked neighbors firepit area and parking lot. Not the mountainous country quiet view advertised. The stream was rumbling and nice, but there were also dogs barking, kids playing, screaming and a lot of road noise. I would stay there again, but I would not pay extra for a private, but not private balcony.
