Property was a little dated looking, but the room was very comfy, clean and quite spacious. Looks like they are doing renovations so I’m sure it’ll get a good update. I’d stay here again.

The property was run down. You rated it as a 4.2 out of 5 - so we expected much more. it basically is a run down Inn trying to upgrade it self. The grounds did not look like your pictures. We were very disappointed.

It was very disappointing. The condition of the property in two works is run down. Unpainted steps as you enter. Partially painted buildings. Very dated from the 60’s. Must smell mixed with cigarette smoke. Very old carpet. I guess I can say they tried but failed. Rusty baseboard heating. An air conditioner that buzzed every few seconds. Would not recommend or will I go back . The 144$ a night was way to much for this room. Very sad

Instructions were to call front desk, no phone in room, no cable TV, the bathroom door wouldn’t stay open and not enough hand soap in the room. Location was nice and gazebo’s were nice as well.

Sara Placid is conveniently located half a mile from the main street and lake. Motel is showing its age although heat/ac and beds and tv were modern and comfortable.

Simply avoid!!! This place is dirty, old and badly maintained. There where plenty dead bugs in the room, the bath was dirty, and the beds very noisy. You hear everything from the room next door and above. We stayed the night only since we had no choice.
