cutest hotel room decor ever

Pros: The front deck from the room gave a great view over the lake of both the moon lite evening and the sunrise. The recently renovated room was very nice
Cons: staff availability at front desk was limited
Deck view of the lake was beautiful and we loved having a chocolatier right in the hotel.

Would avoid staying there again

Pros: location and price
Cons: lighting!!! Plumbing installation.
Very very dark room. Noise from upper floor sounded like a crew of construction workers. Neither toilet nor faucet secured. Chose facility for location and price but would try to find another option. However, it was clean and had a nice view; also next door to Highlands Village Museum.
