The complimentary breakfast was one of the draws for us at The Waterfront and when we arrived 2 minutes prior to closing, the door was locked and we were waved away. 2 minutes? All of our friends who stayed in the hotel that weekend were inside eating. Unacceptable. When it was mentioned to the front desk there was no effort...

Stayed here Dec 2 to Dec 4th. Friday night featured a large party on our floor, with doors slamming and lots of noise.Not the hotel's fault, but perhaps they should look at the door closers and loosen them up a little. (I realize they are for the fire code, but honestly, they really SLAM the doors shut.) Saturday Dec 3rd...

Very convenient location when going to see a show at the prefoming arts. Beer store and liquor store are a 5 minute walk. Decent breakfast offered. Would stay again. My only criticism would be that the air conditioner was a bit loud.

We paid for a room with a lake view and as previous guests have mentioned....we had a view of trees ! The staff bent over backwards to make you feel at home and were...

Really liked the rooms....clean, spacious, and pleasantly outfitted. Good wi-fi and TV. The view from our room was only a rooftop and mechanical things, but maybe if you ask, they would put you in a room with a view of the lake or town. It was not an issue for us as we were out except for sleeping. Beds and...

only complaint is they have NO dressers in rooms for you to put your clothes away, you have to either hang or live out of your suitcase, which I found very strange. The view was amazing, the walkway along the lake was very nice. close to lots of places to eat and drink.

The hotel is in a good location next to the waterside and a quirky little pier. The room I have is very modern and very well maintained BUT the view is depressing at best and I think the only thing missing from this room is somewhere to hitch a noose. There is nothing but a flat roof. Under normal circumstances...
