The front staff that checked me in was very friendly and personable. We had a great view of the lake from our room and the walk to the lake was very easily accessible. This Inn is close to great restaurants to choose from.

After paying for a pet deposit, and having to change rooms because of a not working tv and fridge there were no offers to make up for the incoinvenience, dog... More

The best part for me is that your Inn is pet friendly! Excellent location Quiet! Close to all points of interest, I would definitely consider staying there in the future. Never made it to the Bowling Alley But will keep in mind if I come again. Overall friendly Staff nice rooms.

I love how the location is near to everywhere ,our room has a lake view and its awesome, plus its cheap too. Would definitely come back. If you just want to tour around the place and come back to sleep its a practical place to stay, not bad for an inn.

Location is very good. Its right across the lake. We didnt get the lake view room, but there are rooms which have good view of Lake. All the amenities are present - pool, jacuzzi, microwave & coffee maker in room. The property seems old & averagely maintained.

I stayed from 2/15-2/16. The front end staff was amazing and really took care of us. They were very friendly and helpful and the room was amazing. Had a good patio, fridge, microwave, flat screen tv, and a coffee maker. I was very pleased and will be looking forward to coming back.
