We had a pleasant stay.
We loved having our own balcony, felt like we were right on the water, the ducks and swan were beautiful! The shower has no power and the room could use a good cleaning but it was comfortable and the staff was really friendly and helpful. I would suggest brining your own shampoo if you want to feel as though you have washed your hair. Although we have a few minor complaints, we do plan on returning for a weekend!

Great view from over the lake
Very good views from the room. Bath rooms could use some upkeep but nothing out of the ordinary. I would without a doubt stay here again.

Okay stay.
We decided to book due to the relatively lower rate. However, the hotel does need some construction and refreshing. Our room had an offensive smell (stale smoke?). The beds were comfortable but suggest taking your own pillow. Left for the day without realizing our room door had not latched. Balcony fairly useless as it was covered with bird droppings. And the lake is not as desirable as antacipated. Felt safe, staff was nice, and it worked. However, I probably wouldn’t stay there again.
