Overpriced accommodations in paradise A review of Double Eagle Resort and Spa
At > $300/night, we were expecting to be pampered. Unfortunately, the meticulously maintained grounds around the spa/gym is not the standard for the cabins, which were pretty tacky, e.g., plastic floors, ugly wolf photos reminiscent of a Bush/Cheney campaign ad, etc. If you are into that sort of thing, have fun. But among the flaws in our cabin were a bathroom door that wouldn't stay open, a shower faucet that was funky, a kitchen window that wouldn't stay open, a sofabed mattress that was painfully thin, and there was some trash right next to our cabin, too, that stayed through the course of our 2 day visit. (I'll try to post a photo). When I checked out, the first word out of the desk clerk was "sorry," as if to anticipate our complaints; then, when I recited our problems, she seemed uninterested. All in all, I had the impression that this place was seriously understaffed. Do visit June Lake - and go horseback riding and climbing - but save yourself some $ and stay elsewhere. Too bad.
