Stayed here many years ago on a romantic weekend so I felt blessed to return on a business trip. Was disappointed to say the least. My room, which faced the ghetto trailer park behind the hotel was DARK. Good thing I am not one of those ladies who require a lot of light to put on makeup. The floor squeaked... More

The staff went out of their way to make our stay a great experience. All staff were friendly and professional. The location was very convenient, there were several great restaurants in walking distance and the view of the lake is spectacular!

Poor quality. I thought this would be a nice clean place to stay but when I walked in it smelled very musty and dirty. I wore my shoes in the room the whole time. I would not recommend this property to my friends. My balcony faced an old rundown trailer park even though the Inn is right across the street... More

Fix the air conditioning and bathroom faucet please. Nothing worse than tossing and turning all night because room temperature is unregulated. Opened the balcony doors to try and cool the room off, but this resulted in noise from street and other guests wafting in. Check in staff were friendly, warm and efficient. Room was clean.

Everything was perfect, carpets in room and hallways need to be updated. Bear beach restaurant foods don't match the quality of the inn. I will not eat again at this place. I hope next time the restaurant will be updated.

For $242 we bought pubic hair and women's head hair in the tub as I was getting ready to put my toddler in the bath tub. No shame that the housekeepers name was courtesy signed off by "x" on our night stand. Oh yeah no Disney channel for the kiddos...

Absolutely the best property and people. We've been coming every Labor Day Weekend for 10 years, plus usually once or twice during the year. For a family reunion there is no better place. The rooms are always pristine, the pool area is a delight, the picnic are and the bowling alley/restaurant on the property makes it ideal. We love it... More

It was a chance happenstance that my husband and I ended up at The Inn by the Lake. We had no idea what to expect. We were very please with our stay, the service we received at check-in, and the directions given us by the staff. The room was clean and comfortable. Thank you. We would stay here again if... More

Overall a very convenient place to stay. Within walking distance to beach and shopping. Clean rooms. We stayed in a king bed room with a view of the lake. Upon first entering the hallways felt dark and made me feel like the hotel wouldn't be updated and nice, but the rooms were big an the bedding and pillows were very... More
