My husband and I booked the Lake Roy Beach Inn after reading the wonderful reviews on Tripadvisor and wondered if we stayed in the same hotel! We clearly didn't have one of the renovated rooms and glad we were only booked to stay for one night. We stayed in Room 210 and found the place in need of some updating. Although the bed was clean, the place had an overall grotty look and we felt that was in need of a good clean and a lick of paint. One of the towels in our bathroom was dirty, the fridge leaked water and it sounded like we had people staying in our room because of the noise through the adjoining door.
Obviously other guests have raved about this hotel but it was not for us. Be sure to book a renovated room if you're staying here and be mindful that apart from an IHop on the doorstep there are no restaurants within comfortable walking distance.
The hotel was just about OK but I think we were expecting so much more after reading the reviews.More
