During COVID, it's always a wonder as to where you should stay and how clean is it. This place was clean and they made every effort to make sure we had what we needed. We stayed in the suite Rooms 9 and 10 and it was fun. We stayed with some friends and had a good time. They have a kitchen and microwave, dishwasher, full size refridge. We were able to go to the store across the street and purchase food & drinks. I would recommend they replace the couch in the living room. It's seen it's last days. Also, replace all the outlets to more modern with the USB. All the outlets are worn so the plug drops out of the outlet. Seems like those suggestions would be low cost to fix. Maybe add paper towels, paper towel rack and a full size mirror. We had a great time ad staff were very friendly. Next door is a mexican restaurant which was yummy.

This was my first trip since the covid pandemic. I was a little nervous staying in a hotel. I was the only person in the office when I checked in. I was told there wouldn't be housekeeping due to the pandemic. I couldn't find the parking lot when I checked in so I parked across the street. There are 2 spaces in front of the hotel and less than 10 spaces behind the hotel. My room had a beautiful view. There are stairs to climb up (if you are not physically able to you would have a difficult time). The room is beautifully decorated. The room has a small coffee maker and coffee and real cream packets. There was even 2 packages of chocolate chip cookies. There was wine glasses, wine bucket and a cork screw. There is a refrigerator and microwave. The shower had really good water pressure. The room was so quiet. It felt like I was the only person staying at the hotel. The hotel is close enough to walk into town. It is such a short walk to walk around the beautiful lake from the hotel. I highly recommend the hotel for a nice getaway.

Thank you for taking time to share your experience with others. Sounds like you need to return when you can just RELAX. Lake Gregory is a lot of fun in the Summertime.

Beautiful hotel! Abdul at the front desk was very kind and very friendly when we arrived. The room was exquisite down to every detail. The sheets smelled freshly laundered and were trimmed in beautiful lace. Whoever decorated this room did a lovely job. The attention to detail was unbelievable. And very,very clean. I felt very comfortable here. We had a balcony with a view of the lake which was an extra treat. And the lake was just across the street from our room. An absolutely perfect getaway thanks in part to this gem of a hotel. Will be returning as soon as possible.

It's been a couple years since we've been to Crestline. Used to have a family cabin, so this was the first time we stayed anywhere else. It was wonderful! We stayed in Room 3 and loved it. It was a pet friendly room and you never would have guessed it. It was so clean, even though there was carpeting. Little details did not go overlooked, such as lots of towels, and ample amounts of shampoo/soaps and coffee. We never had to ask for anything! Thank you for a wonderful stay and look forward to next time!
