We were a bit leery to stay here because of the lack of recent reviews, but we were pleasantly surprised. We wanted an inexpensive place to stay on the lake and this was just the ticket. We had two non smoking queen rooms. They gave us rooms beside each other which were great. The rooms smelled of cleaner, but at least we knew they were clean! The beds were a bit hard but nothing unbearable. I would suggest bringing your own pillows though if you have room. The towels were the typical small motel towels so I would also suggest brining a bath towel if you are picky but the ones provided were clean and did the trick.
The breakfast was doughnuts, yogurt and toast, all of which were fresh. Coffee, juice and hot water also available.
The staff were great. Both the reservation process and check in were very smooth. The hotel confirmation was emailed to me so that was nice, it was not needed, but good to have. It is also within walking distance to a gas station and close to mini golf and also other off-lake activities.
We will definitely stay here again. Many times we travel to the lake just for the day but after finding the Lake Inn, we may take more weekend trips now having a reliable and inexpensive option to stay at the lake.
