“Homey Motel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2005

My wife and I and her aunt have stayed at Edge of Lake every year in Sept for over 20 years. Have always enjoyed our stay. A couple of years ago they remodeled and we liked it even better. We think it was always a good value for the money. It's handy to everything. Not right in the downtown but walkable if you like alittle hike. Would recommend staying here highly, if you like the motel atmosphere.

I stayed at Edge of the Lake growing up while speed skating during the winter. I have three siblings - and we all have many great memories of the place. I don't remember smoke (as mentioned above) or urine. It's a nice place. And the owner is extremely friendly and accomidating.

We requested a non-smoking bedroom with a queen bed. Got a room that was a smoking room before with 2 doubles. Both adjoining rooms had smokers and the smoke would seep under the adjoining door. My husbands asthma kicked in all weekend and ruined any enjoyment we got from staying there. The comforters smelled like old wet dog and the air from the fan smelled like urine. I couldn't wait to get home and wash everything. It was disgusting and would not recommend it. The maid was nice, but was not in a position to help at all.
