  • Liked: Staff & service

The property is nice, nicely maintained and has a nice view of the lake. The room was dated, but for the most part clean. The hotel does allow pets, which I was not aware of. Had I known, I would of requested a room that specifically was not used for pet stays, as I have pet allergies which did flare up in the room we stayed in.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

When I came to check in around 2pm the front desk was not available. There was another employee who called the man who was checking in to let them know people were waiting in the lobby. She had him on speaker phone where he told her “lock the door, don’t let them in”. All the customers heard him. He arrived after to tell me my room was not available and he would text me when it was. Sometime after 3pm I can back in to find out what happen. He said he forgot to text me and my room was ready. After reading several reviews about this same man child I realize the hotel knows and just doesn’t care. They want him to treat the patrons that way, otherwise why would these reviews go back years about the same guy? He is there for that purpose, to keep you waiting as long as possible so the hotel is spending the least amount of money on your stay.

The pictures are deceiving. There is no usable beach at the property so don’t book it for the beach. The cabins are old with soiled flooring. Bathrooms are old and dirty. The two people in the front office had the worst attitude and not very hospitable
