We bought a three day stay on living social deal. It was a great bargain and this trip was well worth the money spent. The deal was for a park (short for parking lot) view room, but after inspection I gladly paid the $20 per night to upgrade to the lake view which has a balcony and a great view of the lake. Regardless of the deal I would have checked out before staying on the park side as it seemed dark, dank and prison like. Even though it was January and the balcony was not utilized it was well worth the extra money for the view and the openess it gave the room. We enjoyed watching the ice fishermen venture out on to the ice as well as others, like us, test out the ice with everything from atv, snow mobiles to cars. Quite the show.
Room and property was clean and I am sure the housekeepers were tested with all the snow and salt being brought in. Housekeepers did great cleaning our room during our stay which isn't easy with two adults and a four year old. Only cleanliness issue was a mold ring around the hot tub(think salt on a margarita glass) which was enough to turn the bubbles on the side of the tub an unpleasant shade of green. The next day it was better, but I think just because it was used more.
Hotel location is great with many restaurants in easy walking distance with our favorite being the baker house next door.
In short it is a dated 2 star hotel in a great 4 star location that is doing pretty good with what it has to work with. If you go do what you can to stay on the lake side otherwise it will probably disappoint.
