What a nice hotel. I had looked at pictures online before we stayed, and I was not disappointed when we arrived. I stayed here with my husband, son, and my mom for a little family get away trip. My husband and I were doing the Pictured Rocks kayak trip.
Our room was beautiful; it had two separate bedrooms, each with king sized beds, two separate bathrooms, and two balconies, one off the main living area and one off of one of the bedrooms. It also had a pull-out couch, microwave, fridge, and a sink. We had a lakeside room with a very nice view.
The pool is great. Our 4-year-old son loved the pool area. There is a neat mushroom looking fountain in the pool that gushes water in a very shallow area perfect for little kids. Both the cold pool and the hot tub are large. There are also nice restrooms in the pool area as well as a sauna.
We had a room on the third floor at the end of the hallway and it was very quiet. We all slept great and the beds were super comfortable, even the pull-out couch.
Breakfast the next morning was good -- yogurt, mini doughnuts, delicious, hot cinnamon rolls, pancakes, sausage, eggs, biscuits, muffins, toast, bagels, English muffins, fresh fruit, juice, coffee, and I'm probably missing some. Needless to say, you shouldn't walk away hungry! The breakfast lady was very good at attending to what needed to be refilled.
All staff I talked to was helpful and friendly. They even let us check in early and had our room nearly all set for us at about 1:30PM. We really appreciated that.
I would most definitely recommend this hotel and I would stay here again. It is a great getaway.
