Definitely coming back here. It was very private. The lake view was beautiful. & the room was much better than expected. We weren't bothered whatsoever, our stay was great. Would've wanted the ac to be on before our arrival and for it to be a bit more potent. But all in all, great place.

it was ok to stay there...rooms were clean and beds were spacious. At night there was too much noise from other guests and nothing was dome to quiet the place down. Parking was ok and pool was dirty. The dryer in the laundry room was down, took my money and I did not get a refund.

Pleased with service and room was not perfect but very nice. Was attended to promptly when service was needed since bathroom was missing the shower curtain. get to try out pool area though but would have liked to. Rooms have modern look.

I enjoyed my time there. The only down side was the Ac was leaking so there was water everywhere. They fixed it within hours of me informing them of the problem. Thanks for the great stay. My son had a blast in the pool even though it was small and very crowed

This place was ok for a hotel.. The shower had no water pressure when you took a shower.. You would think paying the money they charge on weekends you could take a decent shower. The parking is HORRIBLE.. Parking lot for this hotel is very small and if you drive a big truck forget it your not getting in.. And... More

We came here through the 4th of July weekend. The hotel itself was ok,furniture a little old and dirty, the ceiling didn't look in great condition and the shower head doesn't have a lot of pressure. Our neighbors kept playing LOUD music through out the night and we could also hear them fighting, had to ask them twice to keep... More

The rooms had roaches and there was a smell to the rooms. Parking is crowded and they need to add some light in water at fishing area. Staff was friendly. Breakfast area is too small. There were only two tables.
