This place was exactly what I was expecting, based on the reviews I'd read. Our single was very cramped and outdated, but suited our needs just fine. Although there were some less-than-pleasant scents directly outside the threshold, they did not bleed into the room itself. The room boasted a microwave and a mini-fridge, which were greatly appreciated, and the rate...

Went with my sister and her husband to dig crystals at Mt. Ida. 1st thing that struck me odd was that the owner immediately charged our cards for our full 4 day reservation the moment we arrived, saying that it took 4 days for the charge to clear. (I never heard of that before, I think she just wanted to...

The room I booked after reading positive reviews on this site turned out to be a dated, fairly un-clean 1980s decorating nightmare that was permeated with the odor of old urine in the carpeting that could have used at the very least a good steam cleaning, and at best replacing the old stinky carpeting. No amount of lysol spray could...

The rooms looked really nice when we walked in. But there was an underlying smell of urine that pervaded the whole room and it got strongest at night when we were trying to sleep. My sister stayed in the single room next door to us and it was even worse and it smelled like urine had been poured on the...

Thoroughly enjoyed my 3 day stay over Labor Day. Room was clean and neat. A/C was efficient. Restaurant was good, home cooking type food. Not as much selection as in larger communities, but good flavor and presentation. Management was very friendly and helpful. Reminded me of my Grandma. Will definitely stay again. Pool was clean and fun for kids. It...

Nice little place to stay and have breakfast before you head out to explore. Much better than your typical hotel setting, litterally within one minute drive of the rock shop we visted to get our mining passes. If you want a little more for your dollar choose this place over a hotel!

The good: Stayed in 118, a roomy efficiency with a private patio—super clean and recently remodeled. Comfortable throughout, comfy queen and king beds, pristine and barefoot-friendly carpet. We used a laptop and notebook while there; Wi-Fi connection perfect. The TV had great channels plus nice deep seating to watch from. Compared to hotels, bathroom was huge—again, all new and gleaming—with...

We had originally reserved one of the 2 queen cabins, but when we checked in, we were told that this time of year they don't open them and it wasn't worth the trouble since we were only staying one night. Instead they gave us a room in the Inn with a spacious 3 queen room. Overall the room was clean...

“they have all different size rooms. Have stayed in several different ones - my fav is the "big" room. Small apartment actually. The rates can't be beat. It's a feeling of home to me.”
