“Adults only - Not for kids”
Reviewed July 1, 2008

We arrived at this hotel in the evening with two kids and we thought it would be nice for them to experience the ambiance of a lake resort. We had a lakeside view in front of the pool where my children were not allowed to swim - adults only after 7pm.

The room was filthy, well worn and musty. The pull-out sofa bed was gross, the mattress sagged, and from the looks of the mess under it, there was more than one party there. The carpet looked like it hadn't been cleaned in years. The outdoor deck furniture was full of spider webs and bugs. The air conditioning was loud, but we needed it to drown out the adult guests who were up well into the night. The TV had no kids channels. The only good part was the breakfast.

If you are traveling with kids - stick to the national chains where there are standards for quality and cleanliness. There was a Holiday Inn Express across the street that looked nice and we should have stayed there. Lesson learned.
