The location was excellent. The log buildings were very cozy and the views from the lodge were beautiful. Watching the sunset from the hot tub was a very nice perk!

The property and room was very well maintained and clean. They had a great ice maker, I know that sounds weird but so often you go to get ice and the maker is empty or the ice cubes are wet, drippy. My biggest complaint would be that we had to move the television so that we could watch it as it was on the same wall as the bed and the only chairs to sit on were the little ones at the little table.

The one positive about this hotel was the location. We could walk downtown to the River Walk and restaurants and shops. The negatives were that to cool down the room at night, we had to open the balcony and room doors and run the fan. Unfortunately, the people next door smoked right outside our door and we had to close everything up in the 90 degree weather. I saw no evidence of any cleaning other than the bed being made. The bathroom was not cleaned, the floor not vacuumed, and after waiting for 2 days for a second washcloth, I had to go ask for one the third day from the Front Desk. Then there were the dog people who didn't understand that dogs that constantly yap and bark don't belong on the balcony at 6 am. Just love the german shepherds without leashes, too. But that isn't the hotel's fault. All in all, I would rather pay a little more and stay at a better hotel.
