“1 room nice, 1 room ugh!”
Reviewed July 30, 2005

The standard dbl. room in main motel very nice and clean. The kitchinette room, in a separate building, was very out-dated, torn carpet, dirty box-springs, musty smell, paper-thin walls, could hear everyone talking in adjacent room, and had to call to get a replacement microwave. Good location,nice owners, reasonable price for resort area.

We stayed here 8/19-8/23/03 and were very pleasantly surprised at the accomodations for the price. We just wanted a place with decent, clean rooms in a quiet location (but fairly close to area attractions) that would let us bring our dog . That's just what we got. A decent pool, 2 firm, double beds and a bathroom larger than a closet. The linen service needs to discover fabric softener though. The mini fridge and microwave came in quite handy. It's a very popular place, especially with boaters, campers and fishermen. There were no vacancies during our stay-we took that as a good sign! Take a drive to Mel's Crow's Nest for dinner. It's a very nice restaurant/bar with great outdoor patios.
