Reviews
At one point this hotel was part of a beautiful resort, and some of that resort-like atmosphere remains. The rooms are large and airy, and they each have a nice balcony; some with a view of the lake. Each room is nicely decorated. They have a couch as well as a bed, and flat screen TVs. But the shine has definitely worn off. The carpeting is stained and the walls need repainting. In one room I stayed in, there was a fist-sized hole in the bathroom wall. The restaurant has closed and they send you to the snack bar at the golf course instead. The price is reasonable, but be aware that there is a $9.00 per day "resort fee" that they charge per night. This is in addition to anything you pay through hotels.com or elsewhere. It entitles you to free local calls, Internet access, and a few other amenities. But I think it is a bit deceptive as to how they charge. All said, I do still stay there. If you look past the worn edges and threadbare look, it is a comfortable place, in a good location, and at a decent rate.
