The Good
Reviews offered mixed opinions overall, in the recent reviews online that were read for this report, but guests had good things to say about several aspects of their stays. 

It seems that the hotel was a beautiful resort on the edge of a lake and a ski hill, in times past, but has not really been kept up to its former glory. Guests who enjoyed their stays usually thought it was a bargain for the many outdoor activities they had access to at such a low room rate. Skiers looking for a cheaper room rate and a nearby place to crash, were among these guests.

Guests who loved the outdoors really enjoyed the location of this hotel. They were pleased with the beach access and some mentioned accessing beautiful walking trails nearby. Others who praised the location said it was close to town and restaurants.

Several guests were pleased with the quality of the food and service in the restaurants on site, although this area of the hotel's service was not completely satisfactory to all guests.

Many guests reported receiving clean rooms with comfortable beds, although there were many complaints about the rooms, and the beds as well, by other reviewers.

The Bad
Guests posted many complaints over several different themes, in the recent reviews that were read for this report.

Some guests felt the hotel had lost its former excellence. Guests who had frequented the hotel in times past, were especially disappointed with the condition of the hotel. They were let down about the rooms and the lack of maintenance and upkeep the rooms had suffered. They also found the restaurant did not open as expected and were put at a disadvantage with the now more limited hours. One guest even complained that the management closed lake access on cloudy days, which inconvenienced guests who came to enjoy it. Another mentioned very short indoor pool hours which stifled his ability to entertain his children.

Many guests had complaints about their accommodations. These reviewers reported outdated decor, old and worn furniture and carpets and uncomfortable beds. Others reported poor Wi-Fi, and one guest complained about limited TV channels and no pay movies. Some guests said their rooms were not properly cleaned or maintained and complained of musty smells, and telephones that did not work in the rooms. (Guests who had no working Wi-Fi or working telephone in their rooms felt somewhat isolated in case of emergency.)

The hotel's lack of elevator was an issue for some reviewers. They described long walks from the parking lot to the hotel, as well as many flights of stairs within the hotel and grounds, and also mentioned no help was offered for carrying luggage to rooms. 

Noise transfer was mentioned by a few lodgers, who complained about being able to hear guests in adjacent rooms and in the hallway, and loud music from the terrace bar until very late.

Some guests also complained about expensive prices at the on-site restaurant and said breakfast ended too early at 10 am. 

Occasionally guests found unhelpful and unfriendly staff at the front desk and guest opinion was mixed about the staff at the hotel with some reviewers complaining about rude staff and some guests finding friendly staff members.
