initial thoughts of this hotel were...okay...well, for the price, on the lake's edge, okay, this is what we get. Upon entering the room, some more disappointment, as it was smallish, and just so-so in appearance. Think upgraded Motel 6. King size bed and fireplace made it better than Motel 6. Small bathroom with shower only and small vanity area. Some construction going on as it seems the place is under fairly new ownership and they are working on making it a nicer venue. Okay again, as the price was reasonable, and they did not require more than a one night stay, as many places seem to in high 'season'. While the bed was king size, it was nothing special. Almost lumpy, and definitely needs replacing. The place is busy, with people out and about enjoying the lake, the pool, the Jacuzzi spa, and the beach. It is a biggish facility, so plan on taking some time to find a parking space, and working your way through the masses can be a challenge.
Major Pro: We had a Beach Room, and the views out the full sliding glass door were phenomenal! I mean, to die for gorgeous. There is a full wall window on the far side of the bed, so you get the view impact on two sides. We slept with the sliding glass door open so we could hear the waves lapping on the shore as we fell asleep.
The staff were lovely.
All in all, we would likely stay here again, because as we have said to our children on many occasions, "once you are asleep, all rooms look alike, so why pay a fortune?"
