Great Place to stay, can't wait to come back again. The place was very comfortable and the view was very nice.. Our last visit included the use of some white robes but they weren't there this time.. Great place to stay

Beds not very comfortable, and the price was quite steep (even realizing it was Labor Day weekend and many Inns raise their rates); otherwise: very clean, well-appointed, convenient to many dining places and lake activities.

It was nice to be away from the casinos and close the the lake. The exercise room lacked equipment for strengthening and had a few old pieces of cardio equipment. The front desk staff was pleasant. The elevator was out and no word of this was mentioned by any staff prior to my discovery of this. No compensation or apology... More

We checked in and checked straight out again. The elevator was broken and we had a room on the third floor. The stairs were absolutely filthy and full of food remnants. Not at all a three or four star hotel as advertised

This was a reasonably priced place in a great location right on the lake. Good restaurants were easily accessible and the hot tub and pool were nice. The rooms are a little funky (sort of 80s), but the bed was comfortable and we had a patio, which was lovely.nthere was some construction going on that started earlier than we would... More

Location is great! Walk right across the street and down the stairs and step on the beach! Within walking distance to restaurants. Short drive to Heavenly Village, and other scenic destinations! Quiet place to retreat to when ready to be away from people and activities!

As mentioned by other reviewers, this hotel is undergoing badly needed renovations considering what they charge for rooms. I'd recommend waiting until they are done. There's just an unclean smell in the hallways from the carpet, particularly the first floor entry area from the pool area. We were also shocked to see how filthy the spa was. We did not... More
