Not what we expected. 1st room was for five, but very dirty. Watch out when opening cabinets. It came off in my daughters hand. We actually had to switch to a cleaner room. The one motel room we rented was so small you could barely walk around the bed. There were cigarette burns on the bed covers. The suite we switched to seemed better, we came in late to go to bed and there were hairs on the pillows and sheets of one bed, so someone actually slept on towels. Not a place to take small kids and feel comfortable with them on any floors or bedspreads.The so called fire pit we envisioned sitting around making smores, was nothing more than a cars rim. The golf practice was a tiny net you hit into. There was an open area by the lake, but no place to sit except for one picnic table. We had four families, but we could not all be together in one area without a lot of improvising for seats and space. My brother-in-law couldn't stand erect in the short shower. Even the rooms for five did not have enough seats for five people to gather. My 14 year old daughter tried to pass the time outside of the room with her grandpa's metal detector, which brought in 11 centsand a pop can. Her grandfather watched and discussed her findings in what he thought was a nice conversation with the owner. A short time later the owner decided she might find something of value and actually asked us to make her stop so he could be the one to find a fortune. I am not kiddding! Now we were back to finding a way to entertain the troops. Maybe the beach? Nope, full of glass and metal poles. We did get to see the inside of a three bedroom house, but even though it was better than what we had, the amenities were still not up to par. Oh, watch out for the drop off in the pool. It goes from 4 feet to 7 feet without a gradual slope. Just a drop off. Not the family getaway we envisioned, but it was too dificult to move four families. I would only recommend this place to fisherman looking for a place to lay their heads for the night. Very disappointing! Even camping would have been better.
