this inn is probably the worst smelling and full of mould I guess this was due to the location of the lake but the room smelled of waste and whatever you find a dust gathering old bead spread out of the old farm full of who knows what The clerk seemed very nice but if you stay there I wish... More

We stayed at this inn last night. The price was the deciding factor and we were pleasantly surprised at our room. It was large and very clean. There was a fridge, microwave, and a new moderate size TV. Wifi was included. The king size bed was very comfortable, and the view of the lake from our ground floor room was... More

This small motel style accommodation is definitely a gem in the rough. Our room was certainly adequate in size and came with an extremely comfortable king bed. The bedding was pristine and I would be happy to use it in my own home. We had a new microwave, small fridge and flat screen T.V. with all the channels you could... More

Check in was a breeze and the staff very friendly and accommodating. The room wasn't huge but had all the necessary amenities and the comfortable king-sized bed made you forget about everything else. Absolutely no noise, and every room was occupied. Being able to walk down the roads and enjoy the lake views was amazing. Plus, it's proximity to Casino... More

Excellent quick check in with very friendly service. The room was large and very clean with obvious new updates. But it was the view of the lake that we really loved. No real noise of traffic just the peacefulness of water and almost country living. A plus that it was close to Casino Rama. NJ. MacLennan

This is a 3* (acceptable) review of a 2* motel.The room was clean, and comfortable. On the second floor - a preferred location. Remembering what you are paying, the room had good television, coffee maker, microwave, and bar-type fridge. Bed was very comfortable. The carpet was new, and the bathroom had been updated, although it is small and basic. There... More

From the initial reservations made over the phone the staff were friendly and professional. We had no problems making the reservation, and when we arrived the check-in service was quick and friendly. We decided to stay here because of the good price, and because they had a shuttle service to Casino Rama. We were attending a concert that evening and... More

Upon check in we went in the CABIN and wanted to turn around and run for the hills. If it weren't for the fact that every hotel in town was sold out we never would have stayed the night. The room was dirty to say the least. The electrical outlets didn't have covers so live wires were exposed, the floors... More

The Cabin is no long available, it is being demolished to rebuild 2 rooms. I believe your motivation for this lengthy tirade arose as a result of you pressuring our staff for a discounted price when you booked the room. We gave you a price that included pet. We normally do not allow pets. When you checked in, our refund... More

To start off after a long day on the lake all you want is a nice clean room where the door doesn't trap you in the washroom when you go to take a piss. Within the first five minutes I had to yell for my friend to break down the door. The rooms were messy and each had a different... More
