My husband and I decided on a whim to take our boat up to Smith Mountain Lake for 2 days, and just needed an inexpensive place to stay for 1 night. After calling several places in the area, we decided to stay at the Lake Inn. Like I said in the title, it suited our purpose. I thought the service both on the telephone and in person were very good. We had a room with a queen bed (VERY firm), TV, mini-fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. Our bathroom had a stand-up shower only, but I presume they have rooms available with a tub if you need one. We didn't try to get on the internet, so I don't know about the wi-fi service. The facilities were very clean, but definitely dated. The room key was literally a key on a keyring with the room number. I haven't seen one of those in years! The air conditioning worked very well, but was also very noisy. Also, there were 2 lights in the bathroom - one being a heat lamp and the other being the light & fan. If you like to keep a "night light" on in the bathroom, there was no way to do that without the fan noise. But since the air conditioner was so noisy, the fan noise didn't matter. While I didn't personally look over the complimentary breakfast items, my husband said that there were some donuts (very fresh), great coffee (but only powdered cream), bagels (and perhaps bread) available for toasting and juice. They also offer smoking and non-smoking rooms. The location was convenient for us. My husband commented that it would be a great place for fishermen(women) to stay. I guess because the parking is suited for boats/trailers and because of the proximity to public boat launch areas. I would probably stay there again if I could be sure that the bed wasn't as hard as the one we had during this visit.
