You cannot possibly pan this hotel adequately. Aside from some interesting lobby furnishings, this is a definite DON'T DO IT. Nothing could be more mismanaged than this "renovated" over priced, cramped, drafty, pitiful relic. The difference between a deluxe room and a standard is a closet. Want a drink? Cant have one. The only thing availble is a $5 bottle of water in each room, which Spa Manager Lori says was a mistake order that they didnt have to pay for but charge guests for AFTER they leave the hotel if it is missing. Ice is scooped from a cooler behind the front desk if you take your ice bucket all the way down to the lobby. Like coffee? Dont look to get any if the restaurant is not open....no coffee makers, no refridgerators except in the exceedingly over-priced "suites" and there isnt even a microwave for the employees, let alone the guests. Want to use the pool? You get to march through the dining room in your suit as it is the only access to the pool. I have a better tool shed than "Johhny's Cabin" which has an outstanding view of the parking lot and dumpster. Dirty Dancing may have been filmed in part there tho renovations have removed the resemblance to the movie. It is no small wonder Patrick Swayze never stayed at the inn despite the impression he did because of the "suite" that bears his name...which is the ONLY room that remotely has a "view" of the lake. And dont come downstairs in the middle of the night or you will probably catch the rotund General Manager sleeping on the couch in the lobby. The front desk clerk that has been there the longest has been working for an entire two weeks and heaven help you if you need an iron. Like the hanging lamps in the lobby....get your own at Lowe's. Like the totally non-period couch in the suite? Pier 1 imports. Walk around the second floor and you KNOW where the smoking rooms are as it reeks in the hallway! Your company picking up the bill for the room? They will tie up your credit card with the full charge until check-out and if you are very lucky, someone at the front desk will figure out how to untie it. Want to treat your spouse to something special? Get it somewhere else. The $25 for a tray of chocolate covered strawberries is a joke with about a buck's worth of content that may or may not get delivered to your room as/when requested. Want satisfaction from the General Manager? Good luck finding him as the staff notes he is rarely there. I would stay away too if I were him. And dont bring a cell phone, there is no signal for miles and miles and miles. And miles and miles is what you will drive if you follow the directions on their website. Just dont do it. Motel 6 will keep the light on for you but the tacky heat and cool air conditioners in your drafty cramped room will not make you feel at home. Of course, if you want to pay $10 for a Margarita, the converted porch bar is the place to go to get warm. Hope that the wind does not blow during your stay as the hotel front doors continually slam with each gust and will keep you up endlessly. Haunted? Hardly. The "face" that appeared in the woodwork in the dining room, which quite frankly I dont see, is a result of poorly kept wood whose finish has disappeared and is screaming for a touch of lemon oil. No small wonder the last important person to stay there was FDR. If YOU stay there, you will see just how unimportant YOU are, and be treated accordingly.
