We got a deal at $119/night which was one of the most expensive places we stayed at and the least value for our money. The location is fantastic... it's stunning. That's were the good experience ended. We had a room in one of the cabins which smelled and even had one of those furniture piece TVs in the living room area. The kitchen area was useless, couldn't even find a spoon. The TV in our room which was just a tube TV didn't even work. When we first arrived we had an quarter of a roll of toilet paper, no extras left so we used kleenex until the morning when we thought that surely the cleaning staff would replace the roll. When she knocked on our door and woke us up at 8:00 in the morning and we mumbled for her to come back later (forgetting in our daze that we needed toilet paper!). When she did come back, we were gone hiking and never gave us more toilet paper! We had to call the front desk for some. The bed sucked and the covers barely fit so I was freezing cold. No extra blankets in the room. And beware, YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY EXTRA FOR THE PARK PASS, we were never told this when we booked and it cost us an extra $15 per night. All in all, not a good experience and we'll never stay there again.
