Old hotel that needs refurbished. Leaky faucets. Disappointing considering the price and time of year.

8/10 Very Good

Nice room, poor service but friendly staff.
Friendly staff but I called as there was no vanity light and the back of the room near the mirror was too dark. I was assured it wouldbe fixed during the day. It was not. I asked again and no repair ticket hadeven been placed. After the 2nd request’ it was fixed. Also, we arrived after check inand it was notclear how to get into our room as there were no personnel after hours. It turns out, the door was unlocked. We didn’t know.

10/10 Exceptional

Complete summer resort.
The resort's hotel rooms are currently being renovated and dining facilities are closed. We were offered one of the cabins for the same price as a room, so enjoyed a "small 2-bedroom home" complete with kitchen. The resort hopes to fully reopen Memorial Day weekend and should then be a delightful place for families to vacation.

Their key machine was not working. We would have to call them everytime we need the door open or get lucky when the key machine will be fixed while we were there. Instead of checking in, we cancelled and got a refund. The parking lot was dark. We had to figure out how to get in & out of the property. This is also a part of KOA which forgot to mention. Expect a longer wait upon check-in because the campers have more involved process like camp info, direction, programs, etc.The staff was very and apologetic though & friendly.

Needs renovation
Under-staffed. Looked like a baby sitting service in the lobby. Peeling wall paper. But the bed was clean and comfortable.

4/10 Fair

We booked a standard room through Expedia, for a discounted rate. Agent at front desk disinterested, slow moving and obvious no caring service manner. Lamp in room did not have a bulb and was plugged in, safety hazard. Shower curtain liner had moderate mildew on it. Bed was comfortable and shower water pressure great. I informed the manager, day of departure. She was kind, receptive and acknowledged the concerns.

6/10 Good

The women at check is was lovely and very accommodating, she was the best part of the stay. The pictures do not accurately depict the property and the description does not inform you that the restaurant is closed. Once we got into the room we were very disappointed with the cleanliness of the room. The walls were very thin and we could hear ( in detail ) the conversations of the guests next to us.
