We has booked a room at a different hotel, but had issues with the establishment. We've had good luck with Best Western in the past, so figured why not. Had a beautiful room, lake side wonderful view with a patio. Breakfast was goid, but could use a bit more variety in cereal. There are many families here...children don't generally eat...

We visited during a gathering of Mini Coopers. Besides the fun of a parking lot full of these cute cars, this was a terrific place to stay. The rooms are spacious. The bedding is comfortable. There's plenty of electric outlets (important in these days of multiple devices.) Great water pressure in the shower, although you need to be careful since...

Staff was phenomenal. Always courteous, polite, and helpful no matter who we spoke with. Definitely will consider staying here if we revisit the area. Already referred this hotel to friends. Right on the beach, there are some rocks in the sand, but for the most part this is one of the nicer beaches. The view off the private balcony was...

We stayed here for two nights while doing some site seeing. The hotel was nice and well kept. Our room was clean and comfortable. We were on the first floor and could walk out to the beach. There were lounge chairs and beach chairs to use. I didn't check out the pool. The breakfast buffet was good with waffles, biscuits...

We had 2 rooms with a view of the lake and they were clean, comfortable and quiet. The beach was nice and had plenty of loungers on the beach. I would stay here again but I think some of the staff need some training on customer service. They werent unfriendly but just seemed indifferent to me and any questions I...

The hotel was right along the beach and the beach area was very nice.. Great chairs to enjoy the lakefront area. Breakfast was sufficient for all of us. The rooms were nice and the mattresses were very comfortable.

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The location was great. We were walking distance from the Star Line ferry and the shops and restaurants. There is a park next door where there was a car show and festival with live music on the weekend we were there (July 11, 2015). The view was great too. We had a...

Nice clean place close to town and the boats. Great beach. Breakfast was good with waffles and biscuits and gravy. Nice large indoor pool. Discounts on ferry rides. A little pricey but it is the high season.
