This was a great three days at a picture perfect resort. We stayed at the lake building. My family enjoyed the hotel, private beach and breakfast. Our room was ready very early. The staff was so friendly and we were so sad to leave.

When I got to my room in the Inn, I discovered the air conditioner vent was packed with large clumps of mold and the filters were clogged with dust. Maintenance came and took the filters out but then they were called to some "emergency" and did not return. The next day I had to call the front desk to tell... More

Great location and concept of resort but somewhat dated. Rug in room was wet from humidity. Outside bar area is phenomenal but service from clueless inexperienced staff ruined ambience. Enjoyed pool across the street. Quiet and relaxing. Staff at buffet was great and friendly.

We are on our last night of our family vacation. Have stayed 5 times total and always enjoyed it until this year. We always stay on the courtyard side of the Lake Building which is nice and quiet. We avoid the lake side so there is no risk of dealing with loud people on the beach or at the bar.... More

We just completed another great stay at the Margate for the fifth straight year. It's a perfect destination for young families. It has a really nice little beach that the little ones love and they can splash in the lake. If you need something back at your room, you're just steps away if you stay at the Lakefront building (we... More

We stayed in a lake front, lake view room and it was very nice. It was fun watching the bar goers during a huge lightening storm. The pool, hot tub area was wonderful and the room was adequate. Very clean and lots of staff. Everyone was friendly and it was a great weekend..

The group thought it was great !! Service was excellent. We all loved the bar and ate most meals there food/drinks were... More

Family spent a week there celebrating my parents fiftyith wedding anniversary. Because they have a food and liquor license we were not able to surprise my parents with any kind of a party or even a cake on the beach!! Thought that was totally disrespectful. They want you to only buy their food and liquor. No outside food or alcohol... More
