4/5 Good

Traveled with group
No ice available. No coffee or breakfast as was in description. Ive stayed other places since Covid and they still offer individual packages of a takeaway breakfast and coffee. Great view from room of lake. Clean room. Door issues- had trouble getting key out and trouble opening door knob from inside to get out - numerous times. I reported this. Overall good for price. Driveway in horrible repair. Hard to navigate without damaging my car!
