This past weekendwas a very nice quick getaway to the lake. If you're planning on spending the entire day at the lake, then the one room motel works just fine. Our room was spacious and clean and had a small very clean backroom kitchen and breakfast area.
Two things I'd ask for- Did I miss the ice machine? Second, At least one lounge chair with a little table outside the room would be nice.
At the end of the day, getting some quiet reading time in a room with the TV featuring a movie more to the liking of your spouse,etc. is sometimes not possible.
Also, with the morning sun hitting that front entrance just right, it makes a good spot for a better lounge chair. A nice little side table to rest my drink and morning fruit would also be ideal. As I see it, as evidenced by the ashtrays sitting on the window seals, the one chair available for each room is there meant to further discourage smoking in the rooms (thank goodness there was not a hint of smoke inside or outside) However, it would be nice if the thought of that spot, small as I realiZe it is, would be made into something more than just a smoking area.
It may even be the start of a transformation from just the typical backroad motel look into a more quaint little cabins.
Oops! 3 things - the last, and perhaps nothing to do with their service - we had no cell service. ( "Can you hear me now? "was not even an option. Hello, At&t. I don't believe there was any wifi offered.
Aside from that, I can say, they were very accommodating. This was our second stay. On the last visit, we were granted our request to stay at one of their cabins which normally requires a min of 3 night stay. We had only planned a 2 night stay but upon arrival we were offered a cabin for a 2 night stay when it came available. The cabin was very comfy, very clean, and equally worth the value.
In sum, Me plans to visit more often!! Thanks lakepointe- thanks y'all.
