Stayed in the building on the lake. This place is in desperate need of an update. Bathrooms had mildew in shower, missing grout on floor and an old toilet seat. When we arrived, we had to ask for someone to come down and clean the sliding doors and windows as they were filthy. I believe they need a new housekeeping supervisor as the entire facility needed a thorough clean. Also, no fresh coffee available. Nice to have access to water toys and great walking location but definitely overpriced and very disappointing. Will not be returning.

The person who cleaned my room did a very sloppy job of making the bed. In fact, it didn't even look like they made it, but instead just pulled the blanket up and that was it.

The location is great. Right in the middle of things. The rooms are large and I loved the small patio with a view of the lake. I liked having a small fridge and the bathroom was great. My only complaint was the elevators were having problems and the service in the restaurant was slow and unenthusiastic. But you could just cross the street for another restaurant.
