4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2014

A clean, comfortable room that doesn't smell and a heating system that works without making a racket. Great bed, no excess noise from outside. Staff was very accommodating despite my having screwed up my reservation details. I have spent twice as much elsewhere and gotten a much less satisfactory experience.

We have stayed here several times over the years and always been happy with accommodations and service. Small motel but location is great being close to Fontana lakefront (10 min. walk) and area attractions. Family O&O and they are very accommodating providing a light continental breakfast, good WIFI and clean rooms. Recent renovations to most rooms although our last visit... More

Beds are very comfortable. Stuff is very friendly and accommodating. Rooms are very big and nice. Coffee, donuts and all the rest made our stay really comfortable. Really worth the money. Location is good enough to walk to the nice neighborhood coffee shops, the marina, the resort and a super nice playground for kids. Awesome little motel.

It's not the Ritz. But it is a great value. Staff was great. Zoran, the general manager, was very personable and friendly. It has what you need, coffee pot, a small fridge, microwave, TV, comfortable beds......coffee and donuts in the office in the morning. Compared to the Abbey, directly across the street, it was less than half the price. And... More

Stayed here for a night. Great location; less than half the price of The Abbey. Stay there if you want the pools, restaurants, and view. Stay here if you want a basic, clean, quiet room with a fridge and microwave. It met our needs. Friendly front desk staff.

It is true that this place is priced well below the Abbey and other area resorts, but beware that it is quite overpriced for what you get. They have a 2-night min now during the summer months but agreed to a 1-night due to a reservation snafu. We waited and rang the bell for someone to come to the front... More

I do apologize about your dissatisfaction at our place. It is always our goal to accommodate our guests to the best ability and in most cases we are successful, considering the guest return ratio of 35%. Unfortunately, the room you have stayed in was one of 6 rooms that still needed to be completed with new mattresses and new flat... More

Four girlfriends, massage appointments (across the street at Avani Spa), and lots of relaxation. We have been doing this annual trip for at least fifteen years, the last ten or so we have stayed here. Great value, wonderful staff, clean adjoining rooms. Just hope everyone doesn't find out about this place, we may begin to have a hard time getting... More

We stayed for three nights and was very pleased (except for the weather!) The room was large, clean & you can't beat the value. It is close to Lake Geneva, the Abbey & a great family pizza restaurant. We would stay there in a heart beat - in fact, we are planning to re-visit (when the snow decides to LEAVE!)... More

Room is clean but very dated, worn and sparse. Lights in room are dim and one lamp had burned out bulb. I requested that the bulb be replaced and no one showed up. Beds have no mattress cover... Just a plastic covering like a child's bed. YUCK!!!!

We stayed here for a night on the Friday night after Thanksgiving. We found it to be clean, tidy, good amenities, comfy bed and really good value for money. It's quite close to the main road, but you can't really hear it.
