Not as advertised. More of a backpackers stay than a motel stay as expected.

Great location overlooking the lake. Shared kitchen facilities good but cleanliness reliant upon other residents. Also noise at night reliant upon consideration of other residents.

4/10 Fair

This is not a hotel but rather four remodeled rooms above the reception/kitchen/patio hangout of a backpackers and clamping site. The rooms are nice, but if you are a light sleeper you’ll be kept up by the backpackers drinking and partying just below your front door til way past midnight and then woken up in the early morning as some guests cook and eat breakfast in the kitchen right there.

The room was fine. I would like to have known I was booking a room at a youth hostel at the time I made the booking with through Expedia, though, we didn't realize this until we arrived. It was quiet at night which was good.
