Pros: We were here two nights and this was, finally, a hotel that actually let you reuse your towels if you wanted. For most people this is not a big deal, but I find it frustrating that they all have that little sign about reusing towels and then they completely ignore the fact that the towels are hung up and change them all. The staff was very friendly and the scenery was beautiful.
Cons: We could hear some noises from the neighboring rooms, but it wan't horrible. One morning there was no water pressure for us to shower- presumably because the large group that was there was all showering to leave at the same time. It was not a problem for us because our schedule was flexible, but I can see that causing some stress if you really need to shower at that moment.

Cons: Nothing worked there. No Tv. No wifi. Staff was not helpful. I called the front desk several times with no response.
