A bit daggy, but if you need a bed and are not fussed about luxuries its reasonably priced (for the Entrance) and clean. You can park at your door and walk across the road to the lake. Reception efficient and helpful.

The Lake Front Motel is a facility that is lost in a 1960's approach to accommodation. It is functional, permits on site car parking close to each room and has a reception that operates during normal operating hours (not 24 hours a day). The interiors are dominated by face brick walls and low budget furniture. The TV works well and...

This was the 6th stop on my road trip to visit friends and family and there were good points and bad points. The good - quiet location even though the main road is near by, the staff are polite and friendly, the room's decor was quaint and somewhat charming with several folk art decorated items in the room. The bad...

The owners were very nice and helpful. The motel appears quite old and needs a refurbishment. The room was very small and the floor tiled; unfortunately I do prefer carpeted rooms. The bed was comfortable and I had a good nights sleep and there was no street noise. There was free wi-fi, but it was very slow. The bathroom was...

The room itself is still back in the 70's but very clean and fine for just one night ... The managers were lovely and helpful ... Wouldn't holiday there but for a night or 2 is good .. And I did think the paintings on the bed head and toilet holder was very cute ..

The title says it all. Starting with the negatives. The single beds in our room had foam mattresses and not inner springs, so they were very uncomfortable when an adult had to sleep on one. Our room was closest to the road so there was a bit of noise, but not so much that we couldn't sleep. It looks like...

This is definately a budget accomadation. Having said that, you get a clean room and caring managment for your dollar. My biggest problem with the accomadation is the paper thin walls.
