Once we got over the look of the half hung drape in the lobby window, our stay was pleasant. The room was quiet and we got a good night's sleep. Breakfast was mediocre with powdered scrambled eggs, no fresh fruit, and bad coffee.

I can't say enough about this hotel. The staff was very friendly, the room was perfect nice and clean ,the pool area was relaxing perfect temperature and the location is great. it's quiet and relaxing, and very close to the lake and restaurants, about 2 blocks - we walked everywhere. The breakfast was awesome my favorite was the blueberry waffles.

The gentleman at the front desk was nice and the lobby looked decent...from there it was not good. We went to our room up the back steps and they looked like they had never been cleaned or vacuumed. The room looked dirty and when I pulled back the sheets they looked like they were never changed...dirt and stains on them....

Stayed for a wedding in the area and this hotel has a great location - close to many restaurants, and right off the highways.Our room was clean and the staff was very helpful. I would recommend this hotel to folks with kids, because they had a very nice pool area, refrigerators in the rooms and eateries very close by (some...

We reserved last minute online. This is a highly booked area in the midst of summer. The hotel only could accommodate the 3 of us in a king room with queen pull-out sofa. Unfortunately, upon arrival, the hotel had no notice of us in their computer system. Luckily, I had printed the reservation. The same room was open and the...

I am a world traveler and stayed in good hotels and bad hotels but this one is just down right poorly run, dirty, & disgustingly filthy. Let me just say that once you get past Dee at the front desk and the lobby its all down hill from there. Its very clear to me that the management is just sucking...

Checked in for a one night stay for a wedding. Looked a bit drab and dated. Which I can handle. But I will not stay in filth! I showed Dee the pictures I took. She gave us another room. Makes me wonder how clean the new room is considering the other one we left.

The front desk did move you in another room that was 100% clean and inspected. Once again we apologize for the inconvenience that you had to move rooms and was checked in...

Stayed here for the weekend with my cousin and her two children just to catch up and spend some time together. Check in was extremely fast and the girl at the front was so helpful and accommodating. We asked for a first floor room as close to the pool as possible because with two little kids we knew a lot...
