This hotel is a bit of a mixed bag with some pros and cons.
On the plus side, the room we stayed in was clean, huge and well maintained. The owners were pleasent engaging and accomodating. The grounds were well kept with flowers and pretty plantings everywhere. They have a family friendly large yard and play area. They have a large playset for kids. They have some video games outside under a large covered area with also ping pong and a version of air hockey. The continental "free" breakfast provided was a little above average and fine for what it is. A full breakfast restaurant is right next door if thats needed. Pleasant was the hotel is located directly (as in steps away) on a very safe and shelterd bike path so you can ride it down the hill all the way down to the state beach.(just be warned getting back up, its a pretty steep ride and kids and those not in decent shape would struggle to make that trek back up). If you go in the other direction, down to the outlets, its fun as well and a bit easier for kids, etc to ride. The pool area had nice furniture and a nice jacuzzi. The pool had a great slide for kids to go down.
On the needs improvemnt side there are a couple things you should know. This hotel in not off the beaten path as I had heard others say. It is right next to the main road that leads into the area. There are large semi trucks and motorcycles etc all driving very close to the hotel that if your outside at times, on the front half of the property, you can have trouble talking to the person a few feet away. The noise is loud and constant during peak season. To be fair it does die down at night and we couldn't hear it in our room. The pool is located about 20 feet from the road and the noise was so loud I chose to not go there for too long. It would be great if they heated the pool it was definitely on the chilly side.
Puzzling was a large kind of rundown work pick up truck that is parked right along the parking lot by the pool for days, spoiling the lovely view of the grounds and plantings. If this were parked out of the way a bit more it'd be less of an eyesore. The truck was in running shape so there was no reason for it to be where it was parked. Do make sure you check in advance if your room is on the top floor. The stairs are pretty steep and there is not an elevator that we saw to get your gear up there. Stay on the bottom floors if you have a lot of gear. The bumper pool table really doesnt work, rubber bumpers are gone, and they should remove it.
Regarding the area. You must get the prime rib at georges. And make reservations and go to Le roux, great food there. Fireworks by the lake are free and usually on thursdays, view near the south side of the state park from the street. Fort wm Henry was expensive but informative and their tour was first class. Goony golf is the most fun mini golf in the area.
