From the initial reservations made over the phone the staff were friendly and professional. We had no problems making the reservation, and when we arrived the check-in service was quick and friendly. We decided to stay here because of the good price, and because they had a shuttle service to Casino Rama.
We were attending a concert that evening and opted to take the shuttle at about $7.50 per person round-trip. They had two departure times to choose from, and a few pick-up times. The driver was very friendly and dropped us off at the casino with no issues, and told us since we were the only ones he was picking up that evening we could name our pick-up time! A very nice gesture, considering they had designated pick-up times- but he was very accommodating for us.
The Inn has two floors- however if you are on the top floor (as we were), you simply drive around the back side of the building, park in front of your door, and only have to step up two minor stairs before entering the room. The room was a good size, clean, you could tell they had been going through some kind of renovations at some point, but that didn't cause any problems with the room. It also came equipped with a bar fridge, and there was a small balcony with a table and two chairs- very nice to watch the sunset and sunrise, and the lake was right across the street so it was quite a decent view. The bed was comfortable, the shower pressure was good. Overall, it did the trick and we were very pleased with our stay.
The check-out process was also very easy, and the staff member asked us how our stay was, which was good to ask for feedback. I would definitely stay here again, especially if I was coming to watch a concert or head to the casino. The value was great for what you received.
