Has anyone stopped into the newly remodeled Golden Hills Lodge which is now a Hampton Inn? The hotel is now open and seems to be getting a decent amount of business recently. I hope that you all have been seeing an increase in business as well because people are in town! The Hampton Inn offers free breakfast, a digital room entry key(no more losing those key fobs!), they allow pets, a fitness center, and a covered garage! Whether you are just visiting or a local that needs to get away, the Hampton Inn Lead would be a good destination with excellent accessibility to all recreation & businesses Lead and surrounding areas has to offer.
Speaking of destinations….I will be going on vacation from July 15th to the 20th. If you need anything during this time and it is urgent, please reach out to Board President Marsha Nichols @ [email protected].
