We live locally and noticed the sign advertising a breakfast buffet open to the public for $8.95 pp. The hotel has always had a good reputation to my knowledge and a breakfast buufet sounds great ! Took my wife, son and his wife, daughter and father in law. Thought it would be great, a big selection of good breakfast food... More

We were here for an event in April 2014 and it is fantastic news that that yearly event will be held here again in 2015. The staff was great! They seemed genuinely pleased we were there to spend that weekend with them. The rooms were clean and functional and for the price, you could not ask for more. I really... More

In August we came up here to do the Presque Isle triathlon. Our family of five just needed a hotel room for one night and this hotel was in a great location for the race. It even had room service for some pre-race fuel. The five of us fit fine in one room. The bathroom light flickered like crazy and... More

I stay at a lot of hotels and I won't come back to this one. My work had me stay here or I wouldn't have picked it myself. The rooms smelled like an old motel... I don't know where that comes from but it isn't pleasant. The room was clean though and the beds were comfortable. Two important points this... More

When we arrived and went to check-in, we had to interrupt a multi-employee social conversation at the front desk. Once we inconvenienced them by checking in we proceeded to our room. Things went down hill from there. We were poolside, which meant all you could hear in the room was children screaming. There is a card in the book of... More

We stayed in a suite on the other sided of the hotel. It was a bit confusing getting there and back, but we managed. The hotel staff was very friendly and very accommodating. The room was very nice and spacious! Room was clean and the halls were quiet. My wedding was in the reception hall, which was absolutely gorgeous. There... More

The hotel itself is dirty and disgusting. Rooms are over-priced as is the mediocre food. Service is awful. We requested a room with a crib or pack and play when we booked the room and it is now 9:45 pm and my baby sure would like to go to bed and still nothing despite 2 calls and one trip down... More

Seriously, worst hotel I've ever stayed in. There was a used toothbrush left in our bathroom upon arrival and the refrigerator had drinks left in it from the previous guests. Housekeeping never came to our room the 2 days we were there, even though we took down our "do not disturb" door hanger AND we called them to request service... More

The rooms are clean except for some stains on the rug. The beds and pillows are comfortable. The hot tub needs cleaned better and keep the young children out. The swimming pool is kept pretty clean but the children run, scream & jump alot and splash way up on the deck area. The restaurant has good food for dinner. The... More

This Hotel was very low cost, but had great rooms with plenty of space. The Dinning area has a great patio, and the swimming pool was excellent. Would definitely stay here again. The Resturant has a great Gumbo, the Fish and Chips were average.
