Expect a basic motel and you won't be disappointed
Posted Jun 28, 2016
I'd read the reviews and booked with a little trepidation. But everything else in the area was sold out for my late-booked overnighter. When I drove onto the property that night with my 2 young kids, I was even more worried, seeing that it was in fact a motel, not exactly an "inn and suites." But otherwise it exceeded my expectations. The room was good sized, nicely appointed, and clean. Internet access was included, and wifi worked well enough to watch netflix. The A/C worked fine and had been turned on before I arrived so the room was cool. It had a mini-fridge and mini-microwave, and TV with cable. Sure, the tub needed re-caulking, the room smelled a little mildew-y and a bit of stale smoke (from outside, not inside the room), and the parking lot was literally 3 feet from my door. But the staff was friendly and the front desk was considerate enough to call me in the evening of my arrival, to be sure I was still planning to come --rather than just selling my room to someone else. I can't comment on the pool or the breakfast or the vending options, but they were present. Was it overpriced for a motel? Yes. But that's true for every single property along the lake in the summer. For a short stay, this is a perfectly adequate option.
