I really liked the Lake Inn. It's clean, the employees were helpful, polite and friendly. Did I mention it's clean? Our room was absolutely spotless when we checked in. It's very convenient to the lake and to stores and restaurants. It's not fancy, pretty basic actually, but if you're not looking for all the bells and whistles, it should suit you just fine. The rooms are pretty good-sized for a budget motel as well. There are a few things, though, that you should know. The mattresses were a bit "firm" for my taste (which is, of course, subjective) and the pillows definitely need an upgrade; I would take my own next time. The towels, however, are definitely steps above what you would expect. Microwave, coffeemaker and mini-fridge in each room. The breakfast is average, donuts/pastries, cereal, toast/bagels, fruit and milk, juice and coffee. They sell ice in the office, which is convenient. And, they are pet-friendly! As they are so basic, though, not sure how great it would be for younger children, there's no pool, playground, etc. But, still, it probably depends on your kids. I wouldn't have ever booked a hotel without a pool when mine was younger but that's just me.
Would definitely stay here again.
