We did not get the room I reserved ahead of time on the phone. We did get a kitchenette. In it none of the 4 glasses matched. I pulled back the covers to tuck in my 9 yr old daughter and saw a ribbed condom - luckily still in its wrapper!!! No plug for the bathtub. Overall revolting!!

We stayed August long weekend. Not sure if they jacked up the price but we paid $136 after taxes. They forced me to pay upfront $100 for a security deposit, they didn't just swipe a copy of my credit card, they actually made me pay it, i've never every had to do that at any other hotels/motels. I explained that...

Stayed in the main floor cabins. Very small room & set up isnt ideal. TV was way up in corner & hard to see. Kitchen was ok, small fridge, 2 burners & no real table, only 1 chair, 1 stool. Employees are super friendly and the location is great. Not new or updated but didn't have to worry about kids...

We loved the location, and the cabin-like feel of the rooms we rented, and the manager was nice. The rug was old and was dirty, but we didn't mind that, as it saved us feeling like we couldn't track our kids in and out from the beach. BUT-- the towels were ancient and hard, and as my daughter said of...

Location to this motel is ideal. It is right across from the beach and within walking distance of uptown. It's an old motel that is need of some upgrading. My folks stayed there and when the walked across the carpet they had to wash their feet. The bed was extremely hard and uncomfortable. The price is reasonable for being at...

Great Location, Friendly Staff, carpet is kind of grubby, we kept our shoes on, it was great for the September Long weekend with ten year old twins and a 12 year old. It was nice to have a kitchennette. I checked the beds before using them and didn't see any issues. I wouldn't pick this for a romantic getaway, but...

My wife and I like to spend a fun night at Sylvan Lake once or twice a year. We like this hotel since it's on the main strip, right near the action. There aren't any issues parking and we can hang out in Sylvan all day. The actual rooms themselves weren't anything special but they are cheap and we don't...
