  • "Unique" only begins to describe this place. It is a comfortable and reasonably priced collection of odd things from the last several decades. They sell cassette tapes and iPod accessories in the gift shop. The restaurant still serves veal cutlet. The rooms are fairly normal but may only have one circuit breaker, so it's a gamble to run the microwave if the fridge is plugged in. The ghost town museum is at least 12 times more weird.
  • I wish I could rate the ghost town and the restaurant separately. This place was just a pit stop of a couple hours for us so I can't speak to the quality of the hotel. Ghost town was pretty fun, entertaining for the price and gave us something to do for a couple of hours to stretch our legs. The buildings that make up the town are all filled with antiques and objects from the past with plaques to give information. The mannequins in the setups are pretty terrible/creepy but I like spooky stuff so I actually enjoyed them. The trains and old cars were also fun to look at. I'd give the ghost town 4 stars. The restaurant served ok food. Not bad but not really good either. It's reasonably priced. The views from the dining area are quite nice too. Unfortunately I think they were fairly under staffed when we went. We were sat at a table for at least 20 minutes before a waitress came by. ( The place was MAYBE half full so it wasn't spectacularly busy ) The waitresses apologized and took our orders quickly. She brought our tea and coffee right away. I ordered a bunless bacon cheeseburger and salad which came quickly but had no bacon. At about the 30 minute mark we got glasses of water after asking for them twice. The burger seemed to be just a frozen patty heated on a grill. Tasted fine but nothing fancy. The ceasar salad was pretty much tasteless. Again I think this was just a matter of the place being understaffed because the season is winding down? Either way I'd give the restaurant 2 stars. Would definitely revisit the ghost town but next time I'll go somewhere else to eat.
  • Good road trip pit stop. Rooms are outdated and could use an upgrade. The pool facilities are in serious need of a makeover. The garden and lake facilities are really nice and we'll kept. There is a small restaurant in the hotel, as well as a cafeteria. Hotel and restaurant staff are friendly but the service is slow and can take a while to get service when is busy.
  • Way Overpriced for what you get....or what you don't get. - NO WIFI in the room. Sure you can sit in the lobby to use the wifi but who is going to take their whole family of 5 down there in the evening and sit there using wifi. - NO A/C in the room. Sure you can open the balcony door for cooler evening air BUT the hiway is right there so you'll get to listen to vehicles all night long. - No continental breakfast, not even a muffin or piece of toast! - The "ghost town" was not a ghost town so to speak. It was just a bunch of old buildings crammed full of a lot of miscellaneous stuff. We expected each building to actually be set up like they would have been in its time, not just crammed full of all sorts of old things. A couple were sort of set up that way but most were not. - The trains that you got to walk through were definitely cool and were set up as they would have been in their time. It was sort of like walking through the past, which is what we had hoped the ghost town part had been like.
  • Eek! I think they've mistakenly called this place "Chateau" while the correct term should be "Cheap Motel". The exteriors of this hotel are very deceiving. Do not be fooled!!! If you paid $30 a night at a motel you might be accepting of the rooms you will find here. Old, thin linens, very old mattresses, dingy, dirty bathrooms that smell of sewer stink, NO air conditioning (It was so hot in the room) and little else in the room. The "restaurant" (again, another misuse of a word) was a cafeteria boasting some of the lousiest frozen foods I've come across in a while. I think people end up staying here only because, once they've seen the resort, it's way too far of a drive to anything else. Save your money!!! Don't be taken.
