Rooms are older and need updating. But the most disturbing thing I found on the trip was free wifi was advertised. The wifi wasn't working and we were given their internet providers phone number to call to find out why it wasn't working. I don't think its yours guests responsibility. Poor customer service in my opinion. Wont stay there again.

We had a beachfront room, which is my idea of a good time. It was right in front of the small beach area and access to the lake. It was quiet and welcoming. Cory, who was always at the registration desk, was very friendly and helpful. The Sunrise each morning was spectacular and altho it's December, we had amazing weather....

Great front desk gal. Gave us the Trip Advisor rate even though we just walked in w/o a reservation. Room was huge; a little dated, but it came with a view of the lake so we didn't care. Bar was AWESOME. The waitress took great care of us. Huge portions of food with great cocktails. Will definitely stay here again...
