  • This was a mediocre room - and the filthy, old carpeting didn’t enhance it.

  • Just an ordinary motel type place. Nothing special. Good location, however.

  • 4.0.Fair

    The room was stuffy and it was hard to cool it off when we arrived. Some of the lights in the room didn't work the shower was very small and it was a capsule (fully enclosed). The carpeting was visibly wore and dirty (I didn't want to take my shoes off). The view of the lake is beautiful and the reason we booked here. The room is in need of updating. Also this property charged us double for the room as it was previously paid through Expedia but they charged our CC again when we left and didn't return the entire amount back to us. Watch your CC charges after leaving.

    The room needed a complete renovation. Additionally, the shower was too small and did not have a hand-held shower spray. This made it impossible to shower without using washcloth.

    Good overnighter

    We spent one night here, was all good. Had a top floor room with view, did laundry and slept well. Clean and quiet.

    Great location, right in town center, many restaurants to choose from. Very close to the lake, short walking distance to the church of Good Shepherd.
