We stayed here for a family gathering so it wasn't our first choice of lodging. I was pleasantly surprised. Although the hotel is rather old and is in need of some updates to the rooms, it was an okay place to stay. We had an excellent view of the lake from our room even though we didn't have a "lakefront"... More

We made the mistake of choosing a poolside room, and the odor was otrocious....musty old carpet (we could only assume) The location is great, beautiful, on the lake, but needs large amounts of remodeling, staff was nice. For the price, it isn't worth it!!

From August 7 through August 12, 2016, My wife and I along with about 100 cheerleaders had our summer ending, season beginning camp at The Inn. There are not enough superlatives to describe the wonderful treatment we received from the staff. Digger and Dwight were sort of the "go to peeps" and were so helpful and supportive of the things...

The ONLY reason I went back to The Inn, was because the rest of the in-laws want to be on WEST lake. So your going to pay a lot of money to be on West Lake, for NOTHING of a room. Plus they got our reservations mixed up and we faced the back of another building...NOT THE LAKE!!! For goodness... More

We just returned from our family reunion hosted here in August 2016 and had a great time. We started our time by requesting a room upgrade which threw the staff for a bit of a loop as there were a few large groups at the resort. They worked hard to accommodate our specific requests and we were glad to get... More

We stayed at The Inn last month and will not be going back. It was our own fault. We read the reviews and knew it wouldn't be amazing, but booked anyway because of the lakefront appeal. Well when you aren't in one of the, I think 4, lakefront rooms, it is highly disappointing. Our view was of another motel building.... More

I stayed here for the last time ever. Paid o$236 for one night in a nasty room that had THREE flights of stairs to it. The gap under the door was so wide that we had bugs swarming the lamp we had left on. What once was a great piano bar is now a noisy, blah place. The dining room... More

Pretty rough for the price. Beds were comfortable thankfully. Everything else in the room was quite dated or cheap, but clean and bug free. The grounds were nice and staff was friendly and helpful. The location is central to the area and this made it easy to get around. Not a fishing spot. But kid friendly.

The Inn is one of my favorite places to go and if I rated this strictly on my enjoyment- I'd give it a 5, but there are a few things you should know. If you are looking for a traditional Holiday Inn style hotel- this is not your place. The Inn is situated in a perfect spot on West Lake... More

My family has stayed here every summer for the past 40 years. The workers usually mess up our rooms when we book them at least 4-5 months in advance. The rooms are in DESPERATE need of a makeover. And the room we stayed in got infested by these tiny bugs that were EVERYWHERE. It was so nasty. Great place by... More
