I'm sorry you had such a poor experience with us. I would have responded sooner, but I'm just now seeing this review. I'm not sure who you were referring to during your check-in process, but I can promise you we don't allow drugs of any kind at our hotel. We also take cleanliness very seriously, so I want to apologize...

My room was dirty with a royal pine air fresher hanging from the light. The toilet us leaking and leaning to the side. The bed sheets were dirty. There were vending machines right outside my door. There was construction going on until 1 o clock in the morning. The room smelled like mole. We were actually sick when we left....

This is not the kind of lodge you would want to stay on your family vacation time. The picture you see of this place is EXACTLY the OPPOSITE of the actual picture. The smell of the place, the matresses, the floor, and the bathroom- it's not the kind of place you would want to see and stay with your family....

'Pet Friendly'? They let the dogs out because 'someone' complained the dogs were barking. These were well behaved, AKC registered dogs. The had successfully contacted the sister-in-law once about the dogs, instead of contacting her the second time, the Manager opened the door and let the dogs out. Bear was hit by a car and killed.
