Superb 9.0 From 155 reviews

Fair 4.0
The hotel is gradually renovating. Check with the hotel before booking to confirm you are getting a renovated room. Old ones are functional but very old. The hotel tells me the newly renovated rooms cost more, but a comparison with other guests revealed that’s not always the case. Our room had two twin beds and no sitting area in the tv room, but hotel offered to move a bed out and bring in chairs for us.

Enjoyable stay
Very friendly service and quick check in. Nice sized clean unit with separate living and sleeping area as well as a decent kitchen, although a couple of the appliances looked very worn. A very short walk to centre of town, restaurants and sightseeing activities. Overall an enjoyable stay.

Water front motel
This motel is water front which is why we chose it. An older motel which has been nicely renovated. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Like that it is family owned and operated. Expensive for a 3 star hotel during the shoulder season. we stayed 2 nights. Up stairs one night and ground level one night. Rooms face afternoon sun which was nice.

The property is on the lakefront and one can easily walk to the town center or the areas where the tours go out. It is not a high end motel, but is clean, safe and very comfortable. The owners live on site and were very accommodating and pleasant.
