We stayed here with our 2 children and were very pleased. The facility was a bit under construction, but everything was very clean. The accommodations considering the price were more than adequate. Bathroom is a bit outdated and could use an update.

We had a very easy check in. Staff was informational about things going on in the area. Room was very comfortable. The only thing that I was not happy with was that we didn't have a refrigerator in our room. The shower head was adjustable so I liked that. Definately would stay

Burley, I do apologize for your unsatisfying stay with us. I booked your group but do not recall telling you that the rooms would be all together as this is a very hard request to follow. I also book hundreds of groups a year and apologize if I forgot. We are a very busy hotel so I may have told you I would try to put everyone near each other but I am never able to guarantee it, I do apologize for any confusion or inconvenience. My suggestion for anyone with certain requests is to call ahead to confirm before arriving. All the rooms were Lake view, as we have 3 different views of the lake, and this is how the building was built and beyond my control, but are considered lake view compared to the City / Street View. As for as the Conference room, you had asked to get into the Conference Room very early in the morning and it was not ready to be given out. I do apologize that the font desk allowed you in the room before it was ready. It was my understanding that you needed it Friday night not morning. When you block a room for 2 nights, the rate is only applicable for those nights. Anything outside of the block is full price. However, when you called and left me a message about this dispute, I went ahead and refunded you the difference anyway. On behalf of our entire team, I would like to apologize for failing to exceed your expectations. Your satisfaction is important to us and we will be using the feedback you provided to make improvements to ensure we offer an exceptional experience for our guests in the future.

We stayed for a weekend. The staff was friendly. The room was clean. We had a lake view room(windows were dirty from the lawn being mowed). The breakfast was ok,the pancakes were tasteless. Other than that it’s not a bad hotel.
