So-so and dated
Well, mixed experience - Outside of hotel looks updated, however inside looks like they tried to update. Two floors and no elevator (strange) so my wife and I had to drag our bags up the stairs. Old school room keys, hotel has a strange smell to it. It was not awful but how did it get the high scores it has? Bathroom was ok, needed some wall repairs. We only met one staff person at front desk, she was very nice.

Spacious king room
The room was spacious and clean and had a small refridgerator and microwave. There was some remodeling going on in lobby area. There is no breakfast so the price was a little high. It is close to the Dunes State Park.
