scenic location,-but
The hotel has rooms in three buildings. These buildings appear to be converted from some prior use. The location is scenic on the shore of Lake Dora right next to the seaplane base. Straight out from our room was the Kalua Beach Bar that had an outside deck area with live music on a Thursday evening,- until 11:15p.m. On Friday and Saturday they are open until 2:00a.m. if you plan on staying up late.

Not So Great
Room directly above cigar bar that hosts loud karaoke til midnight on weekdays and 2:00 a.m. on weekend. Loud and stale cigar smoke permeates building/room. Obviously less than ideal. When I attempted to talk to front desk attendant the next morning about how it would of been considerate to be placed in one of the other buildings (since they were very obviously not full) is when I really got clued into how this place operates. She was aggressively defensive and stated “its the entertainment district” …and where all online booking is put… Ironically, I was not interested in officially complaining as we got use to the smell and did not go to bed before midnight and were there just one night. I thought they would appreciate the feedback. Boy was I wrong. Now they have a deserved bad review and a never returning guest.

Lovely Property
Two different ladies at the front desk at check in were quite rude to us. Lady at night was very nice. I work in vacation the rental business and absolutely understand guests. But these two women need an attitude adjustment. For the rooms, the mini splits for a/c are not that good. We had to switch rooms because the unit was not cooling the room. Second room unit was cooler but just wasn’t cooling like it should. Our friends staying in another room said the same thing. Something the property should look into. My boyfriend works in a/c and said the units were not cooling properly. Something the property should look into. The property was great. Rooms were clean and very nice bathrooms. Nice location and overall stay was nice. Would definitely stay there again.

Good Stay
Our stay was good despite air conditioner not blowing hard or blowing cold air it was just barley cool. Beds were comfortable. View was the best thing and the local eats and shops around was great for saving on gas.
