8/10 Very good

The lobby & restaurant are excellent as we as the crews operating the lifts, tour boat and all. The rooms are in need of an upgrade and are very dated in their appearance looking very 1980ish. The rooms could also use a guest directory of hotel features and a TV channel guide. Overall very good, but room for improvement in the rooms.

4/10 Fair

Worst "Resort" experience
When we got there we were not given a room with a view as advertised. The hot tub was out of order. Our room was in a basement floor that smelled like mold. The bathroom door was broke. The Mountain Top Cafe was closed. When asked for an ice bucket, we were told to use a bag. The resort is not ADA compliant, guest are expected to carry bags to room because every floor has stairs and no elevator for the handicap The price we paid my girls trip was ruined due to the lack of hospitality we experienced at this "resort'
