I had read the reviews before reserving. We were taking my 85 yr old Mom on vacation. Due to the possibility of canceling and Lake View would cancel, with no fee, up until time we arrived. It is located so close to the dock and they had our luggage brought to our room. This was appealing. I want to tell you that at Shepler they made sure our luggage was tagged for pick-up and gave us a discount. We arrived at Lake View and were greeted and pre registered as our rooms were not ready. When rooms ready we were very pleased with good amenities and a very comfortable bed. There was a unit that sat in the room to cool and heat as needed.
I gathered after awhile that they booked large groups and maybe that is why the continental breakfast was so bad. I am not usually one to say this, but the juice was a "drink" and the donuts the cheapest, cereal, yogurt and no fruit. . So if you stay for there location, pool and rooms, GO OUT TO BREAKFAST. Really. They really should be ashamed of what they serve. The evening out on there beautiful porch was wonderful. Also, if you need handicapp accessable, it only means there are bars to help at toilet and shower. The hotel does not have ramps.
