We stayed for two nights during the summer solstice weekend. My wife and I had a decent room facing the parking lot but our friends had a room that was inadequate on the lake side, room 304B. It apparently is a room that is to be used as a third bedroom for room 304A but for some reason our friends got it even though they made reservations well in advance. It was extremely small with an odd layout and a very small window looking out over the lake. The reason to be careful is that the website shows a floor plan that doesn't match what the room really is.
Other than that, the hotel itself is nice and the people were extremely friendly. The location is great as you can walk to all of the restaurants and bars, etc. The deck behind the building is very pleasant with a gorgeous view of the lake.
I'd recommend this place with the caveat that you make sure you get a full suite.
