“I would stay again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We just needed an over night stay. The room was clean and the bed was comfy. There was a small hiccup. The lobby was full when we checked in and there was a customer who wanted to change her room at the same time we were checking in. We both ended up in the same room. Well we came in second so we needed a new room. Customer service was excellent. We were upgraded for free and the hotel employee who was helping us was very apologetic and even carried my bag for me to our room. Breakfast was the typical waffle cereal etc and we were lucky to beat the rush. I would stay again.

The desk staff was extremely helpful with all our needs! They exceeded our expectations with excellent restaurant recommendations etc! The room had a very cute rustic outdoorsy feel with the cabin like decor :-) and everything seemed clean and well maintained. We would stay again!

Stayed here in August. I chose it for a simple overnight because the sign outside advertised a room for $69. They actually charged me $121.59 plus another $15 for misc taxes and fees. When I questioned the charge, her reply was "Oh that's our winter rate." In August - really? So I paid $136.25 for a room by the pool which was very noisy - not what I had requested at all. I would definitely not go back and would recommend you ask for the actual price of the room rather than trust their outdoor signage.

We booked this hotel based on previous good experience with this chain.
On arrival the entry and stairs were dirty. Our room smelled of cigarette smoke, called the duty manager who arrived and announced he was a smoker and couldn't smell any smoke. Shortly after he left the room he called to advise should the room smel of smoke when we checked out the hotel would charge a $250 clean up fee - needless to say we had a dialogue about that!
Linen was threadbare and HBO didn't exist.
Next morning we again could smell cigarette smoke and on doing some checking we could see a couple having an early smoke on a balcony directly under our room.
It was lucky we had only booked the one night as the best experience was checking out.

I chose this hotel for its lower price. It was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. We spent time in the pool, which was also clean. The pool area has nice seating if you are not swimming. I was disappointed, however, that the hot tub and sauna were in a different room than the pool. You have to walk down the hall from one to the other. The service was friendly and helpful, and we didn't eat their breakfast so I can't comment on that, other than the breakfast area was very small. My only complaints are that the pool and hot tub are in separate locations, and that the hallway floor on the second level felt spongy, hollow. I felt uncomfortable walking on it. It made me think the building was cheaply and poorly built.

Room Tip: Get a room with lake-facing view.

Stayed here 1 night and that was more then long enough. When we first checked in the first thing we noticed is that it smelled in the lobby like one of those pine scented car air fresheners. We were told to go to the end of the building and use that door which was a security door but looked like it had been pried open at one time with a crow bar. The hallway leading to our room was very dark. After walking into the room one of the beds had a huge lump in the center of it which ended up being the blanket bunched up. The fan in the bathroom didn't work. The pool and the hot tub are not in the same room so if you have plans on relaxing in the hot tub while your children are swimming forget it. 10 and under are not allowed in the hot tub. Breakfast was the only plus side of staying here. Great breakfast.

We got a good deal on this hotel at the last minute, so I can't really complain because it served the purpose. However, the room we were assigned looked out onto the pool, not the outside (where we would have had a fabulous view of the waterfront), and the pool area was teeming with kids and very noisy. Once the pool closed, things were much quieter and we had a good sleep on very comfortable beds. Unfortunately, there are no restaurants close by so we had to drive to find somewhere for dinner. We did not have breakfast there, but the eating area looked very small and crowded. I'm not sure this is "America's Best Value"; if we had paid full price, we would have been very disappointed.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms near the pool.
