Comfortable room without a view.
This is not really a hotel, it is a "property management" of multiple privately-owned properties. This means that each room/condo will look different based on the owner's taste. We got room 235 - facing the parking lot with no lake view. Nothing we could have done about it since we arrived after 5:00 PM (the office was closed) and we got to talk only to an off-site operator. Our room didn't have nearly enough electrical outlets to charge two phones and a computer... can't think of a situation where there would be more than just two of us... with kids... something unheard of these days. One of the outlets didn't work so I found my phone empty in the morning :-( The bed was comfortable, the folding bed seemed to have a very basic mattress. not sure how comfortable that would have been. Kristin, of the office staff (daytime) was very friendly and kind, pointing out points of interest and good places to eat. Lastly, you might get a better price if you book directly.
