Great place and friendly employees

The lake on the backside is pretty. We checked in and the woman at the desk was friendly and helpful. Upon check out the girl working was out in the lobby sitting on the couch on a personal call. She never got off the phone while we were in there. Just kept talking away on the phone like she was home. But the motel overall was exactly what we needed and Id stay again.

The property was convenient to winterplace. the walls were a little thin noisy. the food was very good Steak. Hotel was Clean

Perfect location for activities around Winterplace Ski area. Note that restaurant/ not open certain days of the week so check ahead, not much else close by for food. Very nice basic motel at great rates.

Loved the live music on the deck. Great price for a simple clean room. Everyone we met was very friendly The grounds were beautiful…waking up to the lake view was amazing

Beautiful area. As far as the property itself, we arrived to learn we did not get the lake view room we reserved and confirmed, instead we faced the parking lot. We had a room with two double beds and this mattresses were very uncomfortable. Rooms not well insulated and the outside humidity and temperature affected the inside of the room greatly, to the point we did not sleep well. No carpet in the rooms. Light fixture was falling off the wall between the beds. Poor lighting in the room. And finally, we booked here thinking we’d be able to essentially hang around the property for the bulk of our time to include meals and bar services. This was not the case as we were informed upon arrival that the restaurant and bar were closed on Sunday’s and Monday’s and we booked a Sat. - Mon. trip. Restaurant and bar options near by are minimal and mostly fast food. Yes, the room price was cheap, however there was an extra fee equalling the same price as a one night stay making the total cost more like adding an additional night. All in all, it was a place to shower and sleep (assuming one can sleep there) and nothing else.

The lodge could be a very nice location with a little updating. The view of the water was lovely and an outside patio could be nice if weather cooperates. (It rained while we were there).

I enjoyed the the view of the lake,,the room was very nice and clean and the housekeeping was very friendly,it was everything I thought it would be ! I will be going back in the near future!

Nice and quiet in the off season. Our stay was due to a family member vehicle emergency.. and they were MORE than kind, helpful and over the top accommodating for them and for us when we arrived. The restaurant food was delicious and reasonable priced too. If you need a quiet place to rest for the night..this is it!!!!

The good: Price. Great location, excellent atmosphere. Felt similar to the Mountain Lodge at Snowshoe. The restaurant was good, the bar was good, and they have coffee and snacks in the lobby in the morning. The staff was friendly. The room was well equipped and clean. It had a coffee maker (the in-room coffee was not so good), iron and board, refrig and microwave, and hair dryer. The beds were comfortable, but the pillows were pretty wore out. The bad: the smell of the room. Very heavy detergent smell when we got there; not sure how to explain it, not bad just overpowering. We aired out the room and it wasn't so bad on day 2. The pillows could use replacing. Altogether, I'd stay there again. It is hard to find an inexpensive place with a restaurant, much less a bar with a pool table. Also, not your run of the mill motel, it's got character.

There was great music at the cute pub, and the music was overlooking a small lake. Great atmosphere

We stayed on a Friday evening and enjoyed the Karoke! The staff were extremely nice! The view from our room overlooking the lake was amazing! We will definitely stay there again.

Very quiet and away from everything. Perfect spot with a beautiful pond behind the hotel

Horrible.. my bed smelled like pee and the while room was smelled nasty. The bed was not comfortable. Please stay away from that place.

This property is right down the street from Winterplace Ski Resort. It is conveniently located for day and night skiing.

The heater in our room is extremely noisy and takes 30-45 minutes to start producing warm air. Until then, it blows cold air and is very loud. The room has a large recliner that was broken upon arrival. I call the receptionist to tell her and she just says “oh, ok” with no apology or offer to move us. The location is excellent though!

Summer evening stay. Could not find the location with GPS, but found it using road signs (the town is very small). Room was fine, but restaurant had loud country music inside (we sat outside to avoid this) and rowdy redneck guests at the bar (attached to the restaurant). They made dinner somewhat less than pleasurable, especially due to smoking and frequent drunken cussing in the outdoor sitting area (even with children nearby). Food is bar grub, and not worth the price, but edible; service is a bit slow and not correct on the first delivery of our meals (and the garlic mashed potato is out of a box). No significant complaints about the room, but no good-quality coffee anywhere in the lodge nor in the town (so far as we could see; no tea or real milk either). Gas is available nearby. No pets (good for us; no fleas); and no smoking in the rooms (also good). Fair for a quick sleep stopover (I would eat elsewhere), but I would not book this place again.

The hotel was old and rundown. The a/c didn't work very well and the was falling apart.

Thank you for staying with us, and especially bring the fee to my attention. Yes we are closed Sunday and Monday so our staff can rest and have time with their families and to take care of themselves. Some of the rooms do not have carpet as these are our pet rooms, or upgrade first floor rooms. I wish you would have brought up your troubles while staying with us, we would have worked to resolve them. As you are just now informing us of them there is little we can do. In the future when staying at properties please inform them of problems so they can work to correct them, instead of posting them in reviews where nothing can be done,
