2/10 Poor

Tried to check in, and the lobby was locked and nobody to be found. Sat in the parking lot, calling the hotel over and over until someone answered and finally drove over to check me in.

Nice stay on the lake
We enjoyed our two night stay. Hotel has been recently renovated. Bed was very comfy and bathroom was huge with walk in shower. Only downfall is the parking. There is enough parking for everyone but that’s it. No place to park and register if the lot is full.

Excellent hotel option
This hotel is beautiful and provides lovely views off the balcony. The attached restaurant was excellent, a little pricier than other local restaurants but worth it. The cocktails were also wonderful. If you are traveling with a boat, there is a lot across the hotel to park, an area to launch and the hotel allows you to use a slip. I would stay here again. Very friendly staff!

Our stay was awesome. They even tried contacting us several times when we were close to missing check in time. (Although a note about that earlier in the day would have been helpful) The only negative would be choice of breakfast both at the hotel and nearby are limited.
