As many have already noted, this place is basic. Hunters place to stay. Clean place to sleep and shower. Air Conditioning was very loud and hard to sleep at night. I think it is just fine for a few nights and pretty cost effectiveMore

If you are a hunter or fisher this is the place to stay, we offer a cleaning area for all your effort, cutting tables, running water, even knives. Don't take it home and clean it do it here and keep the wife (or More hubby) happy! But please do not think its just for hunters, we are here if your wedding and vacation needs. Less
