Positive Reviews

Very friendly employees

The employees of the motel are extremely friendly, according to travellers, frequently going above and beyond to ensure that everyone has everything that they need. Guests are very impressed with the effort put in by the staff here.

Wonderful lakefront location

Sitting right on the lakefront means that travellers love the location of the property. Guests say that the rooms provide outstanding views of the lake and mountains and that the motel is a short walk from the town's main entertainment district.

Spa baths in many rooms

Numerous rooms at the motel have private spa baths and guests who end up in one of those rooms are very happy with their choice. Visitors report that these baths are comfortable and relaxing, adding value to their holidays.

Negative Reviews

Poor soundproofing between rooms

There isn't much soundproofing between the rooms at the motel, according to visitors, as they can hear other guests talking. The lack of soundproofing is an issue at night because travellers can hear everything that is happening in surrounding rooms. Guests say that noise from the road makes its way into some rooms as well.

Updates needed

Guests say that the rooms and bathrooms could use an update, as paint is peeling from the walls and the decor looks old.
