we at first took the last available cheaper motel room. the room unfortunately was a twin (2 singles) and we wanted a room with just the one bed. we had to upgrade to a lake view room which was so much bigger and the view was lovely. well worth the upgrade. it was a little noisy from the people above us and the noise of them coming in and out of the front door did disturb us during the night. we were really tired from a long drive so eventually feel asleep but this could be a problem for light sleepers. service from reception was great, the cleanliness was not the best. a little more attention to detail required in this area. lots of scuff marks on the walls and the first room we checked into had milk spilled on the bottom of the fridge and rubbish left behind by a previous guest.
