Nice and tidy, simple accommodations. Great location could just view the glacier when he clouds cleared. Staff were very friendly and helpful, especially when the washing machine in the laundry wasn't. Short drive into the town. Would stay again.

Large units & huge bathroom. Had a trampoline and nothing else. Driving distance to town so not handy or walkable on busy main road with no paving. Would be good option if you like alot of room space.
