Our stay was way overpriced and terrible overall. Not only was it dirty, the room stank of urine upon arrival, but noisy as well. The price did not match what we got.

Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
The woman at the front desk was not friendly or helpful but the rest of the staff was above and beyond. The room smelled awful when we first arrived. After keeping the window open for hours the smell was not noticeable. The hallway also smelled awful. The sheets and towels all seem like they need to be replaced. Overall a very shabby place. The breakfast was limited. The attendant at breakfast is the one shining star, he was very helpful and friendly. I would not stay here again. I’d probably spend the extra money to stay at a nicer location

The pictures that came up for the site showed a beach with people laying in the sun and swimming. The site said that Lake Flour was only a 3 min. walk from hotel. I thought my wife would love it. She loves the beach. Trouble is there are no beaches on Lake Flour. Closest one is 15/20 min. away. Cancelled our 2nd night's stay.
