We stay at lake views whenever possible, as they have incredibly comfy beds!! Clean rooms, staff was average. It did smell a bit of smoke in the hallways but you could not smell it in our room. The breakfast was okay, they had bacon, sausages, pancakes, French toast, potatoes, eggs, bread, bagels, yogurt. Plus you can order from the menu... More

Room smelled of urine yet manager said nothing was wrong. Would have helped to have a window that would open! If you must stay here, get a room on the very top floor, otherwise you will hear when someone above you moves around as the floor creaks, cracks, etc. with every step, and quite loudly!
