This hotel offers a good value for a fair price. Everybody staying here should not expect luxury or anything exceeding a certain average standard. What you can expect is a friendly service, clean room, quiet setting and very decent breakfast. Overall, we were very satisfied with our one night stay. Areas for improvement: The linens and blankets are getting tired...

This is an older facility apparently under new ownership. Low room rate was appropriate! Much remodeling/ redecorating is needed as former owners apparently did not re-invest. Hallways and our room were stale smelling with a musty old-smoky residue. Breakfast was acceptable but not exceptional. Friendly staff. Hotel recommended a near-by restaurant on the lake that was great. (Reportedly owned by...

The rooms were clean and quite. The lady at the front desk, Nickole Adams was friendly and very helpful offering us information on site to see and great places to eat during our stay. They were placing new carpet down when we were there. The pool was clean. The service from this staff was outstanding.

This was a very nice and clean hotel. The pool was awesome with hot tub. Housekeepers were friendly as well as the front desk. Nickole was very nice and helped us with all of our questions.

Was clean. Little disappointed that we where given a queen bed when I reserved a king and the room was a handicap accessible room with no tub. We only spent one night. Staff was friendly. Slept in so no breakfast for us.

Once we got over the look of the half hung drape in the lobby window, our stay was pleasant. The room was quiet and we got a good night's sleep. Breakfast was mediocre with powdered scrambled eggs, no fresh fruit, and bad coffee.

I can't say enough about this hotel. The staff was very friendly, the room was perfect nice and clean ,the pool area was relaxing perfect temperature and the location is great. it's quiet and relaxing, and very close to the lake and restaurants, about 2 blocks - we walked everywhere. The breakfast was awesome my favorite was the blueberry waffles.
