A little overpriced, but a nice hotel. Free wireless (which they don't mention on their website!). It kicks out occasionally but apparently that's due to the remoteness of the area. The outside wasn't much to look at, but the rooms inside were very nice and just like the pictures on the website. The woman at the front next was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The hotel is not close enough to town to walk, so pick somewhere else if you want to walk to a restaurant other than the one in the hotel. Close to Lake Matheson, which i appreciated since we went there at sunrise and I didn't want to wake up earlier than i had to!
