We were looking for lodging walking distance to the center of town and with a lake view, so we tried this -- and did not like it. First, though, I'd like to note that the two duty managers we dealt with were nice and helpful.

Anyone looking for lodging with a river view should realize there are very few options in town. Since the town is flat and there are no tall buildings, virtually the only places with good views are the ones right on the road across from the lake (or out of town).

This lodge is set farther back, so even the best 2nd floor rooms have obscured views.

Additionally, the Executive Spa Suite is not a suite. It is a studio with a bathroom and kitchenette area between the bedroom and bathroom. The spa tub is in the bedroom.

There are no drawers or shelves for clothes, and the pillows are very low quality.

Great friendly motel, near lake and town with views to mountains.
Room had a large in room pool/bath that you fill and soak in while watching tv.
Cute cats and dog onsite who visited during my stay.
Awesome lakefront walk just 2 blocks away.
Pool avail for warmer months, recommend highly as nice comfy home away from home.

I was one room of three with my family. We had the best experience at this Motel. The service was outstanding and so were the rooms. The Breakfast was a bonus and fabulous. We are going back there in twelve months if they will accept us. The price and the facilities were perfect for us. THANKS

Room Tip: ANY room will be fine and well appointed

The room was well appointed, quiet, very clean and with a wonderful bathroom. We had a lovely view over the lake particularly at sunset enjoying a glass of wine while sitting on the balcony of our room. The restaurant dining room provided a wide selection of dishes and local wines with the staff giving us some explanation about the varieties. We were extremely pleased with our overnight stay and would highly recommend it.
