The property is clean, well located, and the staff is great. It has the feel of a high end hostel with a fun common area, free breakfast, games, and tea and coffee. Room was clean and simple, but a great feel to it. The only whine I have was the sound of a motor that would randomly go off during...

We would stay again without question. Pet friendly which we appreciated. Rooms were spotless and updated. Staff went out of their way to make this a welcoming place. We loved the "lounge" area. Very inviting and friendly guests. We had off season rates which was a double bounds for us

Great little place! We stayed here for our ten year anniversary and loved it! Loved the complimentary coffee and awesome breakfast, the little touches throughout the property really made it! We definitely will be staying here again and bring out brood with us to stay in the family campout room!

Loved staying in this adorable place. Was here on work travel and it was a super convenient location, great staff, clean, well-decorated rooms and the lobby area was a great place to relax after a long day of client meetings.

The hotel and staff and location were great. We fully enjoyed the common Areas and fire pits! The free coffee and tea were great. We enjoyed the continental breakfast provided. The dinner options and drinks were also a nice surprise.

Stayed here the day before thanksgiving, it had just snowed 8 inches. Right across the street from the Lake. They did a great job of turning an average flop house hotel into a very hip place and maxed out its potential. Small but clean rooms decorated nicely, bathrooms totally updated, new energy-efficient heaters, etc. They have a community 'party room'...

Poor quality HVAC system. You have decided to attach the system to the back wall of the room (we went outside to the back of our room to confirm). Unfortunately, the system sends noise and vibrations into the room when it is running, It sounds like a large truck is idling outside your room, with the low rumbling. You need...

Loud fan noise in 120 intermittently at all hours. Appeared to come from back wall of room, was not audible in the adjacent lounge room. I wouldn't stay in the same room another time due to the volume. Office apparently doesn't open until 7:30. 7:00 is not that early, it was a minor inconvenience to wait around. Included breakfast was...

We had a very good stay. The only drawback was the light that shows the temperature on the in-room HVAC unit. If that lit up temperature could be turned off it would make sleeping easier. The alarm clock with the iPhone connection was nice.

We had a blast! Loved our room and enjoyed getting to have s'mores by the fire! I did find our room could have been a bit cleaner. When checking to make sure we got all our belongings we found dirty corners.
