We have been here for 5 days, staying with our 2 kids in one of the family suites.
The strong points: 1) nice location on the park with lake views and easy lake swimming access, though you must drive to nicer restaurants (there is a Subway around the corner); 2) they have family suites available with a kitchenette that is well supplied, good size refrigerator, etc. plus there are outdoor gas BBQs you can use; 3) two nice pools - one outdoor, one heated indoor, with towels at the pool; 4) TVs in both the front room and bedroom.
The downsides: 1) WiFi often isn't working reliably and signal is very weak; 2) we were woken up every morning at 6:30am by the people above our room walking around - the ceilings creak badly and there is little to no sound insulation; 3) the kitchen equipment looks like they haven't been updated in at least 20 years, and while the furniture is in OK shape, the couch and seat don't even match, and look like they came from my grandmother's house. 4) the towels in our room were small and uncomfortable. 5) the free breakfast was very low quality other than the make-your-own waffles; we skipped that after the first day.
Overall, this wasn't a great value for $240 per night + tax. We can see why it was still available when we were booking a last minute August trip to Chelan.
