We stayed at the Showboat motel in 1999, and again in July 2011. The place has not changed a bit from what we can see. On one hand, the waterfront location is great and also peaceful. On the other, the accommodations are very dated, with dark wood paneling, older furniture, bedding, creature comforts and cleanliness. The bar/restaurant advertised specific hours, but seemed to change depending on business or the mood of management. Finally, it's about a 8 mile drive to get coffee in the morning, down to a new store adjacent to the Glenora Winery. The Showboat is no Marriott, where you head to the lobby for a dark roast coffee with your favorite International Delight coffee creamer and USA Today. Anyway, it's your choice, great, peaceful location, albeit with limited conveniences.
