Not that good ... But not bad either

This was a most average hotel that could use an update. The advantage is that the rooms offer 2 bedrooms, fridge, microwave; which is nice or families. The hotel is on the sandy beach, with a nice firepit, but the lake-side area is mucky and overgrown with weeds and grass. The deck area outside of the room overlooking the lake is nice. A beautiful sunrise can be viewed if up early enough. The breakfast buffet was less than ordinary, although the waffle maker was popular. The pool area is sub-standard, thankfully they offer the use of the indoor waterparks of neighboring hotels. Not much to set this hotel apart from the many, many other hotels in town.

perfectly okay, nothing special

A two-star property in a neighborhood full of them. The staff is nice and friendly, though they push the "featured" branded restaurants and don't offer any local suggestions. I thought it was a bit pricey for what we got.

Birthday Getaway!.

Staff wasn't real friendly at first.Area was away from everything ,not much beach . Did have a water park you could use off site.Breakfast was avg.Everything was clean and neat and beds were very comfortable.This was a newer motel and thought we would try something different. Price was appropriate for what you received.

relaxing vacation

We were pleasantly surprised when we checked into our room. Had a great view of the water and the bridge. Did not expect a room this nice for $65. Front desk staff was very helpful. Free breakfast was good. Our only complaint, NO HAIRDRYER in the room.

Hidden jewel

We stayed just one night, room was huge, door out to the beach will be great when the weather is better. Great staff, helpful with dinner plans. A little out of the busy part of town, but quiet all night long. Buffet breakfast was great to. Rates will be higher in season, but would stay there again.

looks are deceiving

This hotel looks like it has it all until you check in. Staff members are really rude and disrespectful. there web page only shows you there good review that are 2 years old. There rooms smell really bad and there beaches smell like wet dogs,not to mention how dirty there lawn is with geese droppings everywhere. Breakfast is nothing special really cheap. lobby is always out of coffee and tea. Dont be fooled like I was. Dont bother to ask for towels for the pool or beach because there response will be sorry were all out! Never again will i ever go there.
