We found this hotel for a wonderful prices and did some research and it looked great. The indoor pool/hot tub area was wonderful! It honestly won us over from the first second. It was perfect! The room was not dirty at all, but it's nothing special. Very plain, not much decor but had the basics, TV, fridge (and maybe a...

We stayed in this hotel from November 7-11th. We had a Jacuzzi room with a fireplace...the hotel room was run down and very dirty. Our sheets were never changed the entire 4 days days we stayed. The floors were never vacuumed, the only service that was done was fresh towels and taking out the trash. The mirrors in the room...

I recently attended an event at the Sidney James Mountain Lodge and while the staff was very friendly they did not answer at the front desk for a very long time when we had issues with our room. There were several issues that made our stay unpleasant such as the room being very dirty, sheets on bed had obviously not...

The staff are really nice. The place is really really out dated. The ceiling fan did not work and the fan in the bathroom made a loud noise and didn't work. The water pressure is terrible. I was concerned with the room across and down from mine, the door partially open with cords going in to that room from another...

This is a great place for families to stay. My boys loved the indoor pool and the price is reasonable. The breakfast buffet was really good too. Everyone that worked there was very friendly. However, there are always pros and cons to everything. There was wear & tear on the rooms, which is expected, and it was hard to keep...

We recently booked a room here and was very disappointed. They charge $10 extra for a creekside room and the balcony is'nt big enough to sit on. The refrigerator in the room did'nt work, the chairs were threadbare and worn out and the beds were put there 40 years ago. The staff was not friendly. This hotel should be bull...

This was the only room in town available for our first night. When we got there we asked if the room was available for the entire week. The staff was extremely helpful to make it happen. It is a older hotel that hasn't been updated. We weren't in the area to stay in the room however. It didn't have a...

We checked in and the gentlemen at the front desk was very courteous (not Joe). The maintenance man was friendly (we will get back to that) but that's about it. Our room blasted us in the face with smoke. Not just a "hey someone might have been smoking in here", but like a dozen chain smokers hiding under the bed....

I booked this after i found they had a deal on groupon. I had looked at over 40 hotels and this was in the running because they had an indoor pool for my kids. I read mixed reviews and thought I could handle it for a few days if it turned out not to be so great. I called and...
