nierennb, I appreciate your feedback on your recent stay with us. I agree, we do have some areas in need of an update which is why we will be doing a complete remodel starting in 2017, inside and outside. It must have been some time since you stayed with us as we have not had any internet issues since we...

The GM Doug cancelled our reservations two days before we were due to arrive. He did this because he had a bad review from us previously. This was for busy weekend of the year. He also stated that he did this because we used reward points. The reservations were made months ago... Why cancel so close to our check in...

Cynthia Horning, I will address your concerns with what I know to be documented and factual. One of your reservations was made on May 26th, 2016 and the other two reservations were made on June 1st, 2016. All of the rooms you booked were for non-lakeside standard rooms through the IHG reservation portal. On Wednesday, June 22nd, 2016 you called...

We were treated to a special weekend away and looked specifically for a pet friendly hotel. Upon arrival I was greeted by two ladies at the desk whose smiling faces immediately turned to frowns when I told them I had a pet. They checked the reservation and it verified I had told them when I made the reservation. We were...

deb5252015, thank you for your feedback on your recent stay at our hotel. I apologize you were not satisfied with your original room. We currently allocate about 10% of our rooms as "pet friendly" rooms and they are on a first booked basis and only two are on the lakeside due to the high demand for those rooms. We are...

We spent a long weekend here recently. The beach front is very nice, but otherwise this is a pretty average Holiday Inn. Our room overlooked the pool area, so it was noisy until about 10:30 pm and smelled of chlorine constantly. The mattress had virtually no padding and my wife and I woke up sore every morning. The Wi-Fi (free...

Absolutely enjoyed the stay. The hotel thinks of everything to make your stay a joy, with the complimentary canoes, bikes, fishing rods, etc. Our lakeside room was perfect. The only thing that kept me from giving 5 stars was the service in the bar. Granted it was a holiday weekend, but there should have been an extra bartender on hand....

Jane S, I apologize that we did not exceed your expectations on your recent visit to our hotel.
