    The hotel had a good location located close to the beach and downtown. The staff was friendly and let us check in early. We liked the hot tub and pool. There were also bike rentals which would have been nice if we had the time.

    Road Trip quick stop

    Arrived late and owner waited up to let us in, left early so very little to say about Motel but it was clean and comfortable and the playground looked great for kids.

    Disappointing

    It was very noisy with a lot of disruptions during the night from other guests - so the unit was not sound proofed. The fixtures and fittings and furniture were very tired and the place could do with an upgrade. Although units are handy to the lake and that was nice.

    Great place to stay with the grandkids - they loved the pool and spa. The fridge iced up and food got frozen but was great to have a large fridge.

    The property has dated and new bits mixed, great location by the lake, nice swimming pool and quiet even though it’s near the road.

    Good location but probably best for families or one couple. Units all have mezzanine floors so there's no privacy for the second couple ( we were two couples and there is no indication that it is a mezzanine floor). Only a toilet upstairs- we thought there was a second bathroom. The pool looks big in the photo but is tiny. Crockery and kitchen equipment is very limited. Very few units have a full kitchen and full-sized fridge, so check this before booking a unit. New owners say they will be upgrading.
