Hotel is outdated and not kept up. Vouchers are confusing and just a way for them to get you to spend money in their restaurants. Food was good but over priced. Shuffle board was old and unusable. We were woke up between 7:30 and 8;00 each morning to loud leaf blowers outside our windows. When asked they said they were blowing the Millions of May flies away and providing a courtesy to their customers- at 7:30 in the morning? Pool area was dirty and pool water was thick and gross. Signs that were in room about people stealing towels was passive aggressive. The newest staff member to check us in was awesome and friendly but other staff members at the desk were loud and abrasive with customers. We choose this place because it was on the water and that was great. But this hotel is severely over priced and in great need of new management and needs a major remodel. We would never stay here again-bad vibe overall.

Pros Comfortable beds,nice beach area and tiki bar. Cons So many to list. Booked 2 rooms my brother arrived one day before me and found a syringe in his bed. It appeared to be an unused diabetic syringe but when brought to the front desk they were told that there was no way that came from the room as they have clean rooms. So in theory my brother and his wife had a syringe with them and planted it. Person at the front desk did nothing and no manager on duty, asked when one arrived to contact him but they never did. Policy is for multiple nights they do not clean the room do to COVID, they will change the towels and empty the garbage.They do not do that either. My wife called the front desk in the evening and they said it should have been done, when we asked for towels they had 1 left at the front desk and if we wanted more then 1 she would go grab some at housekeeping and we could come down to the front desk and grab them. Sticky substance was on the carpet and there were empty candy wrappers left in the room from the previous guests. Tiki bar was packed, sign said expect 1 hour plus wait for food orders. This property is not a resort and is a very old property that is understaffed and not well taken care of. They are using COVID to make policies that only benefit them not for the safety of the guests. This is the only "Hotel" style property on the lake in this very nice small town. Should have stayed at one of the many motel/cabin style properties instead.

    Way too crowded considering COVID social distancing, which did not exist here at all. Obviously overbooked and not staffed for the crowds. Food taking over 2 hours to get. Lots of "Spring Break" like partying. Even the police was called on someone at one point. Wouldn't have really cared too much, but this trip we took our 10 year old and she didn't want to stay, she was scared.
