The front desk employees were nice and the woman in the gift shop (I believe her name is Janeth) was amazing. The rooms were also fairly clean and looked nice, and there is obviously a lot of great history in the lodge.
That being said, the overall stay was below expectations. The hotel does claim to be a one-star, but the ratings were still high, so I expected a fairly pleasant stay. First, the price was well above 3-4 star hotels, with none of the amenities provided, even with taking into account the location. Second, the doors and walls were so thin that people simply walking past your room was quite loud, and any movement from adjacent rooms was completely audible. Additionally, at least one door into the hotel did not work with the key card. Lastly, the hotels.com listing indicated that breakfast was provided, and the staff seemed to indicate that this was true, though it was never explicitly stated. Instead, we ended up having to pay for breakfast, and the food was subpar. Overall, we appreciated the people and the location, but not the price and structure of the hotel. Would not recommend that others stay here, but would recommend them walking through and reading about the history of the place.
