People in general were very unfriendly and not helpful. Prices were also high on everything. Gas was well over $0.50 a gallon more expensive.

Very positive & pleasant front desk experience. Also great breakfast clerk. Helpfull & friendly. So refreshing in a day of non existent customer service. The check out experience was not all that. Felt like i was disturbing her sleep. Also restaurant late lunch serice was very poor. Lovely property for relaxation.

Disliked: Amenities
Didn't have enough towels or toilet paper for our stay. Had to ask several times every day for towels. Needed to do some online work and there was never internet. We stayed several nights and there is no room cleaning service. With kids our room got pretty messy. Would have appreciated at least the garbage removed. Improvements to the beach area where appreciated and well enjoyed since our last visit 4 years ago.

The gym equipment was mostly not functioning which was disappointing. That was the only downside. Otherwise everything was EXCELLENT.

Good, not great.
Hotel was ok...not great. Service was pretty good. There were a couple issues with our room (light in the bathroom and drain) and only one of the two was fixed. Not too many amenities, but that's to be expected with a small town hotel on the lake. Probably will go Airbnb next time.
