Staying at Canyon Lake Resort during a trip in November met my needs exactly. The room was clean and quiet, and the staff were helpful and friendly. It is also a beautiful and unique location, situated within sight and walking distance of walking trails, the lake, and a park, all of which gave an added bonus of wildlife viewing opportunities! I would absolutely stay here again.

We had a lake view with a table and chairs. We got to see a fair amount of wildlife. There was a church across the street that had beautiful bells and music. I also liked that there was a ceramic cup to make tea instead of the usual cardboard cup. The lady at the desk dropped off a hair dryer. I would stay her again for certain.

Canyon Lake Resort is conveniently located on the edge of town and while I thought the traffic noise would be frustrating it wasn't at all. The lake and park are absolutely beautiful and I felt safe walking alone every day during our stay. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and did some magic to make our unplanned extended stay enjoyable and convenient. And the rate was excellent for what we got. I was ready to go home but sad to leave the resort and Canyon Lake. I highly recommend Canyon Lake Resort!

Check-in was a breeze — very friendly staff. The cabin was definitely older, but it suited our needs. The A/C did not keep us very cool through the night, but that did not deter the pleasantness of our stay!

Quiet and clean.
Great place to stay if you don`t want to be in town. Very quiet and the rooms are larger than a normal hotel. Staff is always super to deal with and while it is an older resort it does he job really well.

Staff was great and very accommodating. Our last night we hung out by the community fire pit and they gave us a smores kit which was a nice addition. The room was clean and ready just outdated and still smelled like smoke from years past, which would be our only complaint. The smell was tolerable. They did allow us to check in early as well. A lot do around the resort and desk staff were super helpful when needed. We will definitely be back if in the area again!

Nice location by a small lake. Clean, older style, drive up motel. Don’t expect high style, luxurious bath soaps, etc. Room seems to have been painted recently. A new mattress would be nice. Desk person at check-in was friendly. Nine minutes to downtown bars and restaurants.
