I have to believe that most of these reviews are in house. Upon check in, we were asked to pay a 50.00 advance for gratuity which we politely declined. Rooms are gross (don’t even get me started on the bathrooms), old and grungy..musty..paper thin walls and holes in screens allowing bugs in...which, by the way there are MANY a variety. I get that this is the mountains..but I don’t need spiderwebs and prey hanging like drapes at every turn as I enter the room to remind me of that.
The staff seems ok..but with an air of “you get what you get” mentality. The dinner offerings are a good example of this. Family style dinner typically offers a choice or delivery of at least two different entrees and sides..this is not the case here. Expect one entree, one side and a salad. One type of dessert. Food just ok. Also strange is the bar tender who asks you if you have your old glass when you go to order a second drink at the bar. Bring your own food and snacks, unless you are ok with being redirected between meal times to a sole vending machine consisting of Doritos and Cheetos.
Indoor pool appears old, cloudy and dank. Oh and you are asked to buy towels for the pool if you did not bring your own, as guests are not permitted to use room towels there.
Entertainment is..interesting. Picture your grandpa at the keyboard playing the chicken dance and the hokey pokey with a German flair. This was probably the most redeeming part of this experience, where the time warp/ surreal feel was most forgiving....albeit cringe-worthy at times. They do give out free post cards of the resort so don’t forget to take advantage of this perk before you leave. ;)
