So easy to find, and once you are there, you can walk all around town. Staff was very friendly and the room clean. Our bathroom was interesting as the room was big but the sink and toilet were right up against the tub/shower. Lots of wasted space. Oh well, it still functioned and the bed was comfortable. We zipped back...

We spent a night here earlier this month. The motel has the best location being on the shore of the lake and yet only a minutes walk to the shops, restaurants and bars. The accommodation is of a very high standard and honestly exceeded expectation. Spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable.The receptionist was very cheerful and readily recommended local restaurants when...

The view from outside our door was lovely. You are very close to the lake. Our room could have used a bit of TLC. The tub drained slowly & you could see daylight between the door & door frame. It serves basic needs. The wifi was basically unusable. Check the refrigerator before putting anything in it. Sometimes it is unplugged....

Stayed for 2 nights and the receptionist was really friendly and helpful.

The hotel is right on the lake shore with magnificent view of the surronding mountains. Rooms are nice and bed is comfortable. Easy access to the town, everything is at walking distance from the hotel.

We stayed in the Courtyard Cabins, convenient to everything, two blocks from the lake and right off of Main Street. Very comfortable, quiet and clean. Would like to stay longer next time. The staff is very friendly.

We spent 3 nights at the Western Riv and everything was great. We had an older cabin off the Main Street and could walk to all the restaurants and shops. While the cabin was older - we had a great walk in shower, a good bed and it was very clean. Fodor's was correct - the office staff is very...

Stayed in Lakeside Cabin #2 in Sept to enjoy the view of Grand Lake. We like to grill our own meals and the outdoor grill and small kitchen make meals easy.

We had a lovely time here late August. Staff is so friendly and helpful, while the location looks out to the water. There is no a.c. but there are fans, and the wi-fi is weak but manageable.
