Location is top notch! A great place to unplug and relax but the accommodations and resort itself was disappointing for the price. It was during COVID so options from the restaurant were really limited. I would not go to a resort to have a hamburger or elk burger. And the store was really under stocked. We had a single cabin which was ok- rustic and sufficient sums it up. The kitchenette was marginally stocked. Service was either really good or really bad. The front desk was not friendly at all. We did not have coffee in our room (only decaf) so went to restaurant to get real coffee and the person there was exceptional. Despite all of the issues I would say the setting is beautiful and look to accept the issues. Hopefully this was due to Covid and not standard

Underwhelming Resort

I was expecting an upscale resort similar to the ones I visited in Europe and this place was a disappointment. The cabins costing $250-275/ day were basic without even a microwave in the one without a kitchen. There was always a line to be served at the front desk as there was usually just one person working behind the desk. The dressing room is small with not a lot of bench space to sit and change. The dressing floor was always quite wet. I liked the soaking pools and guests can access them pretty well the whole day. However, the pools are quite basic with no waterfall and only two jets streaming out hot water. Not what I was expecting unfortunately.

Very nice secluded place, a bit of of hwy 101, but definitely worth the drive, clean cozy cabins, hot springs were well worth the wait and there are 4 different pools. One is a cold lap pool and the other 3 are varied degrees of heat. Would have been nice to have a microwave in the room especially since this restaurant hours were so limited.

Racist staff

I went to the resort for a bachelorette trip. After hiking to pass the time until our reserved slot - I went inside the resort to buy a Gatorade. I went in line and waited as a male employee helped an elderly man. 6 minutes went passed and I was not greeted, helped, or acknowledged in any way. I didn't say anything as the employee was the only one visible and who knows of the elderly man was hard of hearing. Where things change is when a group of white men walk in and get in line as well. As soon as they arrive, a woman comes out from the back to help them. I - obviously annoyed - asked why haven't I been helped and the employee stated that I should have been in the right line. Me as the only black person in miles and the only person never to be greeted felt the isolation of the moment. The passive-aggressiveness and the diminishment of my personhood. An I'm sorry, I would be right with you would have sufficed. No one ever said sorry to me. No one.

I absolutely loved the hot springs! This was a wonderful way to relax after a long day of hiking and visiting different sites in ONP. The hot springs are surrounded by trees and mountains. Staff was friendly. When we visited there was some miscommunication regarding policies and how long you could stay in the pools but the staff made accommodations. Drinks and food are overpriced so I would suggest going elsewhere. All in all - a wonderful experience!
