Heather, Renee, Tanner (I wish I could name them all) were our guardian angels! Truck broke down and they had a place for us to stay, made sure we had food and everything we needed! Went above and beyond to make us feel safe and that we were in good hands! Room was very clean. Beds comfortable. Property is beautiful! Will be coming back and staying here! They truly made us feel like family. Thank you!

We stayed for 3 nights. It was clean and affordable. The lobby was nice and cozy. Rooms were motel style which meant that if you are on the 2nd floor, you need to carry up your luggage. It also means you can park in front of your room. Our room felt on the small side, but we did have our ski stuff with us. The staff all seemed very friendly. The breakfast was good, and the attendant was extra helpful. He was friendly and working hard to keep everything refilled and cleaned. The location is minutes from Sugar and Beech Mountain.
