The view is absolutely beautiful. The rooms are nice and the bathroom is nicely updated. The elevators seem to have been neglected but other than that, it was great.

Good staff but disappointed....

I have stayed at the hotel when it was managed by Best Western and the service was superb. However, when my boyfriend and I stayed at the hotel that is currently managed by Clairion under Choice Hotels, the staff were wonderful. The staff did a great job on accommodating both of us and even took the time to be patient with us when asking questions or even expressing concerns. The only thing I found disappointing was the cleanliness as there was a bed cover that had a big coffee stain on it, walls had stains and the mini-fridge did not operate properly. I will say that when I spoke to the front desk they were kind enough to have the cleaning staff replace the bed cover. It was a shame to have wasted money buying frozen food and then have to toss it out because the freezer does not work. Needless to say this hotel is still great but can improve on room cleanliness.

view nice / otherwise shoddy

The views of the town and the lake are lovely. The thunder storm was spectacular from the floor to ceiling windows. The staff doesn't seem to care about much. The general atmosphere is in need of repair - everywhere is an amateur patch job. Water: burned my arm or froze my butt - take your pick (staff didn't care). Relatively clean. Need something - go to the desk yourself. Food - again view is lovely, food is overpriced and fine, but not great.
