10/10 Exceptional

What a great place!
What a gem! Loved the “old school” feel of this place (even had a REAL key to get in our room!) but the cleanliness was amazing! Great view of the lake, very fair price, clean and comfortable room and beds. We will stay here again for sure! Thank you to the office as well for hanging our keys outside the office door for us ( we didn’t arrive until after 9pm).

4/10 Fair

Incredibly overpriced!
My main issue with this location was the price . We paid around $200 when the reality of it is this is a 50-60 dollars a night motel. Way way overpriced.

A bit of an older building, but well maintained and nicely appointed. The view from every room is excellent.

8/10 Very good

A pretty decent value
An older motel that is well kept. The bed wasn’t so comfortable for me, but overall a decent value compared to others nearby.
