We booked this hotel through a LivingSocial deal for our friend's wedding in June. We did a little research and thought the hotel was good enough for our needs (we only needed a place to sleep and shower); plus at $150 for 2 nights, a standard room, and a bottle of wine, it was a steal of a deal, right?
Boy, was it ever misleading. The hotel has seen better days and upon checking in, we already spotted that our bed wasn't made, the towel bar in the bathroom wasn't screwed in properly, and the carpet was very dirty. We were occupied with wedding festivities that we weren't cognizant enough to inspect the room in further detail. During our last night at the hotel, I finally noticed that our bed was a double bed (instead of either 1 queen sized bed or 2 double beds) and the bathtub was grimy and plain disgusting. Again, our bed wasn't made! Those "Mountain Luxury Beds" are really feather mattress toppers on a cheap mattress from the early 90's. The free Wi-Fi didn't make up for any thing either, as it was next to impossible to connect to the internet.
I will never stay here again and would not recommend this hotel. We weren't getting any sort of deal with our LivingSocial deal. Instead, we were essentially scammed by the hotel into paying $75/night for a motel-quality room through false advertising. The only thing I recommend about this hotel is their potato wedges served at their breakfast buffet; that's it.
