We came for baskeball tournament in town with several families. we ordered pizza at 930 at night and wanted to let the boys eat together. We were told we could not be in the lobby til after 10pm. So we had to go to our rooms and wait 20 minutes til 10 to come back down and eat as a group. The parking lot was very slippery my son fell going in to check in. The next morning it had snowed and the side walks had not been cleared. The parking lot was not cleared either. which made loading our car hard. (not to mention it was icy under it) We also went down to have breakfast in the morning- there was NO Coffee!! like they had ran out and no coffee could be made. I had already checked out of my room by this time so I could not go back to get coffee.

One night stay - did not use any amenities. Bed was very good. Not happy with Expedia service: had to adjust my stay and the person online deleted both nights causing me to call the motel directly and book the night I needed at a huge markup.
