This was our first visit to the area and we chose to stay here because of the reviews on Trip Advisor.
A warning to those who haven't been to this area before - there are no bars here. None. Bring your own. Being from Milwaukee, this was a complete shock to the system, but we figured it out...now back to the hotel.
We had a lake view whirlpool room, which was very clean and comfortable. Amazing given the amount of sand in the area, and how dirty people must get playing on the sand dunes all day.
Parking is a little cramped with all the trailers and ORVs parked in the lot. I can't imagine how they do it during peak times.
We didn't visit the beach area across the street, but did enjoy a beautiful sunset from our balcony.
We would stay here again if we came back to play in the dunes again.
