Loved the service at the front desk, but the rooms are beginning to show their age. It was clean, and quiet (on the lake side), but no real view of the lake from the 2nd floor. Thought it was a bit pricey, but then we were 'caught' without reservations on the long weekend. Thankfully they had some fresh apples at breakfast, otherwise it was bread, muffins, cereal, etc. Not a huge choice, but adequate. Strong smell of chlorine walking in through the front door, but the pool is right there. It's an OK place, but I'll check TA reviews next time we're 'stuck'.
