    • 4.0.Fair

      The property is a bit older but well maintained. The halls are brightly lit. It is clean. They have a nice gym with fairly good equipment. The pool and hot tub are also enjoyable. They had provided 2 large inflated pool floaty animals for the kids. Lots of chairs and tables spaced spaciously about the area. Breakfast was also a pleasant surprise. Hot eggs, potatoes, pancake maker along with the usual cereals, yogurt and toast/muffins. Very nice ladies staffing it too. What we found a bit unusual was there was a single elevator for the 5 stories of rooms. We don't usually mind the stairs but we were on the top floor. It was also a very small elevator. Curious. The only real negative was the evening staff person. We came 20 minutes early and the room wasn't ready. OK, no problem. We will come back later. That being said, she was the angriest, most openly hostile creature I have ever met anywhere I have ever stayed. It wasn't just with me either. We have traveled extensively nationally and internationally and I have never seen anything like it. I realize that it is very difficult right now, and customer service can be trying. I worked in a service industry for more than 40 years. One takes a breath, puts a smile on one's face and moves on. I hope she is in a happier personal place today. I wouldn't want that greeting my guests on a daily basis.

      This was more of a motel rather than a hotel as advertised.

      No other options....

      With very few options in the Clear Lake area, we chose this hotel based on reviews. Upon arrival, we were very disappointed that a hotel reviewed as highly as this one would not have basic cleanliness at the helm. Our sink drain leaked and splashed water onto your shins each time it was used. The AC for us and many other guest did not work for 2+ days. Nothing appeared very clean in the room and throughout the hotel. The pool was murky at best. Pool towels were hard to come by.
