Stayed here a couple of nights. This place is close to everything that you would want. It is close to grocery stores, restaurants, even a hardware store. There are some boutique shops too. The front desk check in was quick although were were given incorrect directions to get to our room. It was enough to figure it out on your own. They also have a pool which we did not use.
We stayed in a room with jetted tub that had a spray nozzle if you wanted to take a shower. We were pleasantly surprised by the tub; it is really nice and there was plenty of hot water. The room was clean upon arrival.
They provide free breakfast. They had an assortment of items to offer such as greek yogurts, waffles, biscuits, and other warm dishes.
They give you non-card keys to the rooms. It is like a key, when you put it into the key hole - it emits a pretty high sound - almost like an alarm. It is a bit unusual and the first time we stayed at a hotel with such unusual room keys.
The few issues we had with the room is that it seems that the bathroom light was tied somehow to the jetted tub timer. If we stopped the tub earlier than the timer, the bathroom light would remain on and would not turn off. Not sure if that was just an issue with the timer itself or built in that way.
The room has REALLY thin walls. You can hear people talking in other rooms. And there is a train nearby that also comes in the middle of the night. You can hear it all. If you are a heavy sleeper, then these items will not be an issue for you.
For us the issue with the thin walls was too much for us to stay here again. You know the rooms are thin when you are trying to talk normally (not like we are having a crazy loud music party) and people start banging on the walls for you to be quiet. I think these rooms are best for solo travelers who have no guests. less

Thank you so much for taking the time to complete the online survey and leave such a great review. Our team here at the Sky Valley Inn appreciate your feedback, as it helps us to improve. I'm very happy to hear you were impressed with the location of the hotel, as well as the jetted tub and the breakfast selection.
You are absolutely right about the walls being too thin, we have gotten many complaints. I have talked to management about this issue, and plans are in the works to eliminate noise. As for the train, we can't do much about it, but if you decide to stay here again, I would suggest requesting a room on the other side of the hotel which is quieter, and we will try our best to accommodate you.
Again, I'd like to thank you for writing such an awesome review.
