The reason I gave 5 stars was not because of the hotel room but because of a great lady named Blanca who was so very helpful during check-in! Let's just say it had been a very hectic week and she made things a lot better and did everything she could for us...thanks! The rooms were pretty good but a bit...

We have stayed here in the past and everything was great, this time was different. We tried to get a drink at the Tiki Hut bar (on the beach) but the bartender seemed more interested in discussing her love life with another employee, after waiting for 5 minutes we left to go elsewhere for our drink. The hotel in general...

Look not the best or worst place, don't be fooled by the cool looking fireplace in the lobby. Check out other places maybe in Reno It does have a fireplace which is cool, but try not to stay in the A block as the view isn't great. B or C is the way to go. They use pump dispensers in...

This hotel has a great location right on the beach. The room decor and finishes are dated, but the room pricing generally reflects that reality. The in-room coffee maker has Starbucks coffee, so you can start your day gazing out at amazing scenery with a great cup of coffee in-hand. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The restaurant food is...

The property was at a great location right on the beach, very close to Heavenly. The room had a fireplace, great partial view of the lake. Walk outside to the back, beach is right there. Room also had a small boogie board for kids to use. They had a big screen LCD tv to watch. Bathroom had stand-in shower instead...

WE enjoyed our stay here. it is right on the lake you can walk from your room to the beach. There is a little place where you can rent paddleboards & stuff right @ the resort. You are within walking distance to a grocery store. Nice place clean rooms, friendly staff.

We stayed here for one night during memorial day weekend and we couln't have asked for a better time. The room was spot on. Perfect for the two of us. It was clean and comfortable. We didn't have much of a view, but it didnt matter because we were outside the whole time. We loved the fact we could sit...
