We booked a one night stay directly thru hotel after having an unsatisfactory conversation with an Expedia agent who insisted we take a luxury room with spectacular lake view. The hotel agent, when contacted directly, gave us a ground floor room which was surprising quiet as the hotel appeared to be full, when we enquired about the AAA discount, we were given a seniors discount. The room was large with bar frig, microwave and a picnic basket of dishes,which was a nice touch if we had been staying for several days.
We ate at the bar, same kitchen as restaurant, at staff suggestions as restaurant was full of family diners. Staff were friendly, laid back and accommodating. Unfortunately the food was mediocre at best. Caesar salad had so much garlic and pepper that it was barely edible. Roast beef dip arrived with beef dry and over cooked. The evening chicken special was better with accompanying mashed potatoes and salad. An entirely forgettable experience.
The hotels lake front view is actually of the marsh and bird sanctuary, and as we were there in midsummer and water level was low, it was a long way to the lake. There was a lovely walk around the end of the lake and down the public boardwalk to the boat docks where we enjoyed the sunset.
The pool which has both interior and exterior connected pools was well attended by adults and children and the hotel appeared to be very accommodating to young families.
