Fair price for room with refrigerator and microwave. Within walking distance of Lake and a pretty good restaurant, The Boat House, though the selections are pricey. Good view for sunset view from restaurant when clouds aren't blocking sun. Continental breakfast O.K. Receptionists are friendly and helpful.

The first thing u see when u drive in is a green pool, the pictures of the room on Web site was not the same as the actual room. There was a black hair in my bed when I pulled down the covers. Other than that it was ok

Very Friendly staff, clean rooms and a very helpful manager, James. Good breakfast, and awesome Wi-Fi. Easy walk to the beach and pier. We will stay again when we are in town. Thanks again for a nice weekend.

The mattress had a HUGE stain. What looked like someone had bled out and died there. Luckily, the staff took a percentage off of the bill or I would have written a bad review.
