Overbooked

Posted Jul 10, 2017
Pros: The water
Cons: Have our room available.
Reserved a kitchenette and attaching double room. Arrived to find out that 1) kitchenettes and double rooms aren't attached. 2) NO KITCHENETTE WAS AVAILABLE!!! 3) It took them 2 hours to get us into the room they did have for us. Luckily we could squeeze all of us in the double room or we would have had NO VACATION! The staff offered no discount and acted like it was our fault by booking through Expedia! If this is how they treat repeat customers imagine how you will be treated!

Dear Dee, We apologize for the confusion and not being able to resolve your dispute to your satisfaction. As you were advised at check-in, we do not offer adjoining kitchenettes and mountainside double rooms. We are not sure how that information was communicated to you, but apologize again for the misinformation. In checking all 3rd party websites, we could not find anything communicating adjoining rooms. In speaking with the front desk, we were advised that you refused the kitchenette room when you were informed the two rooms were not adjoining. The 7-day cancellation fee was waived for that room and you were reimbursed in full once the front desk was able to resell that room to another guest. The front desk also advised us that the mountainside double room you ended up staying in was available when you arrived and you were checked in immediately. Apologies again for the confusion.

Gorgeous location!

Posted May 21, 2017
Pros: Location!
Cons: housekeeping services and alternative for breakfast
This is in a gorgeous location by Blue Lakes in Northern California, just picturesque. The room was lovely and very clean and updated. Just a couple of things that surprised us. The continental breakfast was not set up somewhere where you could go in and serve yourself and the times they supposed to bring it to the room were later than we had to head out. I suppose if you planned to stay on location that would have worked but we never had the opportunity to try the breakfast. We stayed for 3 nights and were surprised that the bed was never made up. I didn't expect them to strip the bed, just make it up. Anywhere else we have stayed for more than one day they have always provided this service. They did leave fresh towels and coffee for us. Lastly, the second night we stayed we had loud, obnoxious neighbors talking very loudly outside our door at about midnight.

Dear Stephanie, Thanks for the informative review. Although we're happy to hear you enjoyed the beautiful lake location and appreciated the cleanliness and look of our rooms, we absolutely apologize for your room not being made up each day. We offer daily cleaning services, and your room should have been freshened up accordingly. We're also sorry to hear you didn't have a chance to enjoy our expanded continental breakfast. Next time you plan on visiting the area, please feel free to give us a call and reference this review. We will happily handle all your requests personally and make sure you enjoy your stay to the fullest!

Simple but comfortable in beautiful location

Lovely location on the lake. "Mountainside" rooms means roadside and there's some traffic noise but not too bad. Lakeside rooms are wonderfully located. Excellent bed. Very friendly. Simple but adequate breakfast.

Nice enough

Posted May 15, 2017
I guess I let the name fool me. This is a motel, not a lodge. It's decent enough as a motel, but it's not a fancy or particularly comfortable lodge space. They have the lake deck, which is really nice, but overall there's not much going on at the hotel. Everyone working there was very nice, friendly, and helpful. Also, the floors are tile, which is a fun aesthetic choice, but it means your feet are going to FREEZE. Bring slippers. Mandatory.

Lakeside veiw

Posted Apr 30, 2017
Nice veiw but, Noisy fisherman in am and sunset. Too close to main highway , lots of trucks and traffic for double the price of most the motels @the lake. The breakfast was decent, however, staff was not that friendy. Look like more of a chore to the staff then being polite to customers.
