This place is DISGUSTING, THE STAFF IS RUDE, AND THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS MANAGEMENT HERE. My main complaints are there no fitted sheets so the flat ill fitted sheet moves in the night and your leg touches nasty hotel mattress, paint in the bathroom is peeling off the wall, and there is mold black mold by the AC unit. The sheets were like 5 thread count very scratchy and uncomfortable. We talked to other guests and they were also upset with their stay. One man told me that he believed it was a $40 a night hotel. I agreed. Dont come here with your family. You won't sleep and will be disappointed with everything. The freaking wifi doesn't even work. The breakfast isnt included. They give you a voucher for $7 off your breakfast not free, you still have to pay $9 a person. Mark my words. If the rest of the world caught on fire and this was the last available place to stay, I'd kick it in the woods. Do not by any means bring your family here. The disgusting part is this hotel is the fact that they have no smoking signs on all the rooms but it smells like cigarettes. The "owner" is a liar. She told me that the owner would call me and that they were off site. She then she told my husband she was the owner. Her name was Kim. When I confronted the "owner" she hid from me in back then took jabs at me saying that she wanted to evaluate me at my job?!?!?!? IM ON VACATION NOT WORK. As someone who has worked in the medical field their claim that fitted sheets are more sanitary is BULL shes cheap and won't buy fitted sheets. That's the real reason. Hospitals have plastic mattresses. Not cloth. Gross gross gross. Take my word for it guys. Dont do it.

PRO: Mike at the counter was very accommodating. CON:Room 313(3rd floor) smelled like wet dog! Elevator was not working; after 10 knee surgeries, stairs are difficult on a good day. The Ice machine on the 1st floor wasn't working. No fitted sheets on the beds. Shower curtain 5" short of closing and hung 6" too low. Beach front not accessible due to sharp rocks and erosion. I asked Miike for the best price he quoted $198/night (Thursday).+ $24 tax. No AARP or AAA discounts. After agreeing on the cost I later found this hotel on the internet for $139 for the same night! This hotel is way overpriced. Discount coupon given at check-in for Sunday brunch reducing cost to $10.each but wasn't really worth that so we skipped brunch. We had stayed here 4 years ago and had a good experience, but not this time.

Our overnight stay here was aweful! Property is run down, like 1980 never been improved run down. Linens in the room were old and discolored, sheets did not cover the whole very uncomfortable mattress. Spider webs everywhere, obviously they have a pest problem. The final reason I will never stay here again. I actually heard a staff member using profanity and yelling at some woman if she didn't like the place * I guess I wasn't the only unhappy customer* she should go stay elsewhere. I will take his advice and never stay here again. I wish I would have read past the first few reviews before booking. There is a pattern in both reviews and responses from property owner/staff? As in bad and excuses.

The motel (resort??) has worn carpets, dirty windows, and plain, no-frills rooms which one would expect if you were paying half the price (plastic and styro cups, plastic sheets under the sheets on the bed--really?) I specifically wanted to be able to walk across the street and swim in the lake--my main reason for booking at this motel. I asked if there was a beach right across the street, when booking by phone, and was told "yes." Which was not the case at all, it was a 15 minute drive to swim. The staff was courteous and they very kindly sent me a book that I left in my room, much appreciated.

We are not returning!!! The lighthouse got our money for 2 nights but never again. The smell in the room was awful from dampness. Bed comforters very old. ... carpet was gross. Basically the hotel needs renovated!!!! Paid way too much per night ($200) for nasty room. I don’t think owners care. Mattress was very saggy.... again very old and needs replaced. Will never return!!! Maybe owner will get the hint after seeing poor reviews.
