Not very impressed. Person at front desk not very friendly. Main issue was we were next to restaurant/bar and had to hear loud music till 2 am. Could not use the refrigerator as there was food left from who knows when.. I would have to be really desperate to stay here again...

Room Tip: ask for a room as far as possible away from connected bar.

The only good thing I can say is that the size of the room is spacious. Other than that it sucks. The toilet in the bathroom is so close to the way that any person of size will har problems using the toilet. There were bugs around the pool on te pool deck and in the ladies bathroom at the pool. The free continental breakfast is a joke. You'd be better off going to McDonalds across the street for breakfast.

My husband and approximately 6 other co-workers reserved rooms at this hotel. The internet doesnt work unless you are sitting by the pool, The tv goes out constantly, the phones dont work in the rooms...so If you need anything you have to walk to the front desk and approach the angry owner, and duct tape is holding the fridge together. At a rate of $329 plus tax a week...NO THANK YOU! The owner is very rude and inconsiderate. Housekeeping also just walks in...doesn't knock or anything. You're better off to drive a little father and save some time, money, and grief.

If you love dirty beds and lots of ants. Please stay here. We were moved rooms only to find the ants also moved. We tried to cancel our room after being there for 1 hour an would not refund. Pool is broke. Horrible experience. Do not stay

I came into Boone for business and had the hotel booked for me. Looking online, I didn't have high expectations for the place. The place was moderately better than expected as a basic hotel room. All I used was the bed to sleep but it served my needs. On arrival, the staff was friendly and my room was fine. I just read another review that remarked that it was not family oriented and I would also agree that it didn't seem to be able to cater to families.
