"Rooms are clean if you need help look for the mother and daughter driving the tiny white truck. They'll bend over backwards for you."
"The casitas"
"Rooms with the balcony on the lodge are nice."
"The cabins are older, but the lodge rooms are newly renovated and they have private outside doors to enter (similiar to a motel) with a balcony over looking the marina and the lake. Its a little more to stay at the lodge, but still under $100."
"If you enjoy sleeping with bugs, this is your place!"
