This is a laid back, no frills 2-storey motel with ample free parking space. Situated about 3km away from the town centre along lake terrace, it is not really by the lake but on the other side of the road. You can't really see the lake until you are on the second storey facing the main road.
The rooms are pretty basic with minimum furniture and lighting - there is a huge tv though. Good enough if you want to just spend the night and spend your day doing activities. The bathroom tends to get flooded since it's just a shower curtain trying its best to keep the water out. It's not the most luxurious of accommodation, but it's good value. There's a small swimming pool and a tennis court too.
One criticism is that there is no internet access in the room, wired or otherwise. You have to go to the lobby to get connected. My advice is not to bother about that, but to head to town to the cafes which offer free internet with a purchase. Our recommendation is the lovely delicatessen called "Salute", or the cafe beside Subway.
