You can't top the location of this hotel. It sits next to a beautiful lake, hidden away just a hundred yards (or so) off the main road (Rt 20). This was our second wonderful stay at this hotel. Our room (122) was on the first floor looking out at the lake with a small patio and a couple of chairs. After a 90 minute drive, it was great to take our very active 4 yr old out for a walk along the lake. She brought her jump rope and enjoyed jumping in the grassy area between the room and the lake! Check in was a breeze and the desk staff friendly.
The room itself was fine (although we knew from our last stay to bring our own pillows as theirs are not so comfortable). There were a few stray hairs in the bathtub but other than that, the room was very clean. I'm surprised at some of the reviews complaining about "old" looking rooms as ours was clean and up to date. The free wifi was very convenient and fast.
We ate dinner at the Oxhead Tavern across the parking lot from our room. Food was just OK, as was the service. I had the turkey dinner which was plain but fine, husband had the pasta alfredo which was too watery and the kid had the kids cheeseburger which was huge and decent.
The next morning we had the breakfast buffet at the hotel which was fine at $9.95/per person. There is an omlette station which I chose instead of the ready made scrambled eggs which looked a little like they were packaged. They had a good assortment of pastries, breakfast meats, bagels, oatmeal and juices too.
We never used the indoor pool during either stay but it looked clean. The pedal boat rental was closed when we arrived (at 5pm) and when we were leaving the next morning (at 9am) much to my daughter's dissapointment.
Overall, we had a wonderful stay - definitely the best location especially if you want to have a place with something else do do other than sleep.
