Expect very little sleep here, considering the walls are about as thick as the sheets on the bed.

Expect very little sleep here, considering the walls are about as thick as the sheets on the bed. I could make out exact conversations happening out in the hallway, and it was as if the man 3 rooms away that was yelling for the hallway talkers to be quite (Those weren't his exact words, think rhymes with "shut the duck up") was whispering it in my ear.
I couldn't plug in my phone to the outlet beside the bed because it wouldn't fit all the way in to the outlet. Nothing was wrong with my cord which MUST mean there was something wrong with the wall outlet (the outlet frame stuck out farther than the actual outlet holes).
Don't expect to get a solid workout in either, because although there is an advertised exercise room for you to use at the Ptarmigan Inn next door, it has as many weights to use as I do arms and legs. That's 4. 2 20lb dumbbells and 2 15lb dumbbells. But that's okay because you can use the treadmill! Well you COULD use the treadmill if it didn't have holes in the tread...
I WILL say that the bed was comfy though.
Overall, I'd give the Driftarrow a 2.5 out of 5, which I GUESS you could round up to a 3.
