The staff were courteous and helpful. The location on Lake Flower is ok, but looks at a marina and right next to Rt 86. They offer a wide selection of paddle craft to use at no charge. This is an older motel with small rooms, tiny bathrooms and showing it’s age. The rooms were disappointing especially for the price tag which was outrageous.

Pretty location on the lake. Kids enjoyed their kayaks. Bathroom door wouldn’t stay closed. The slider to the deck did not lock. Mostly enjoyed the place though. But it’s not too fancy.

Access to free canoes, paddle boats and kyacks, life preservers. Room and view of the lake was terrific. Facilities in the room needed some attention, toilet seat did not stay up, shower doors loose. Need to consider lattice work between the balconies, otherwise great place and would stay again.
