We came during the Valentines/President Day weekend. It was the only hotel available that was under $200/night. We totally understand that peak time so the cost was reasonable.
Staff is incredibly friendly and accommodating. The property is on the older side so don't expect any frills. I'm not sure about the rest of the rooms but we only had a shower so I wish there was a tub to soak in after a day of skiing. The room was very clean and spacious. Breakfast is just toast and some cereal. I wish they had more fruit than just bananas but we were really excited about the tiny Balance bars! If you ask the front desk, they have coupons for Heidis next door and another diner down the street. The best thing about our stay was the comfortable beds. My sister and I still speak of them!
If you've never been here before, the map shows the property right next to the lake but is actually behind another property that's right on the lake. Needless to say the lake is still walking distance.
We will definitely stay here again but we probably will try to avoid peak times just because we hate traffic.
