Very clean room, good water pressure and plenty of hot water, which was lacking in other Inns in the area. I was impressed with the staff and overall atmosphere of the whole place. Looking forward to staying there when I'm back in the area.

There were many choices but I picked The Golden Host. It was a great place to stay and the staff were friendly and very helpful. They have a fantastic bar called the BAHI HUT wow that is a throw back to the 50's. I would recommend this place to anyone.

[Summary at bottom] Wow. One of the worst places I've ever stayed in (and I've backpacked around Europe paying €10 a night for accommodation). I'm actually annoyed that this business made money off me. From the moment we walked in we felt like we were burdening the staff member there by checking in. This process took about 15 - 20...

Stayed 2 nights for a girls weekend getaway. Booked this super cheap, $40/night 2 queen size beds. We were only at the hotel to sleep & shower. Not a great area. Breakfast buffet was a few danishes and coffee. It worked for us since we were barely there, but if you want quality go somewhere else!
