The reason the lake is fenced off is to prevent the alligators from coming into the first floor rooms! We saw several during our recent stay.
Staffmember Ernest was especially helpful. During our stay, all the rooms in building 2 were getting new beds, carpet, and paint. Our lakeview room had already been done.
Big wedding the weekemd we were there, and parking was at a premium. Could find only 1 handicap parking spot for each 4-floor building.
Despite being a no-smoking facility, 2 rooms on our floor was exuding cigarette smoke in the late afternoon and evening; didn't smell in our room, though.
Room service breakfast was good; best hotel shower I've ever had!
