It use to be owned by Best Western. The management has increased the prices for the rooms and has done nothing to update them. They have giving employees scripts to rehearse instead of the staff being genuinely friendly. The restaurant that is attached has gotten super expensive for an OK quality of food. They give you a $10 voucher for breakfast and have limited your choices. They bring you a bill with the cost of everything and then you have to ask them to take the voucher off the bill. I didn't understand the process nor appreciate the need to ask them to take the voucher off. It was almost like a test to see if we would pay for the whole meal. But if it was to secure a tip from us based off the amount we spent on the meal. Well it was over priced to begin with and I tipped for the service we received! Not happy with the changes so we will not be going back. And we have stayed there for the last 4 years! Too expensive for what you don't get!

Good Value, Especially in Off-Season

Our queen room on the second floor was small but clean, comfortable, quiet, and reasonably up to date. I believe some of the second floor rooms in the back have a "peek" view of the lake, but ours didn't. The included made-to-order breakfast was good but basic; a little fruit would have been a nice addition. Location is excellent; walking distance to the beach, marina, casinos, and businesses along Highway 50 but away from the noise.

Great inn 9 min walk from heavenly village!

Pleasantly surprised by stay during new year weekend! Queen bedroom was a bit small. Barely fit our twin cot that we brought for our 7 year old son. However, given price and location close to heavenly village, it was great. Additionally the bathroom had heat lamp that feels wonderful after a coming in from cold. The complimentary breakfast was a sit down full breakfast. Great service and full breakfast. Would definitely stay again.

Stay was great

Pros: Was quiet and clean.
Cons: I wouldn't need to improve anything.
Location: Two blocks big beach area, was off main road, so not so much traffic.
The front desk was very nice and room was very clean got new linens everyday . Restaurant was very good for the breakfasts. Male waiters were very polite and nice. Hotel was in a nice area off the main road. The grounds were kept up and looked very nice.

Nice hotel close to beach

There were many nice things about our hotel and only a couple of minor negatives. The room/hotel was clean, comfortable, and conveniently located close to the beach and activities. The room was rather small, however, and the air conditioner was difficult to adjust (it was either "hot," "cold" or "off," no gradations). The heat lamp in the bathroom was a bit extreme, and the exhaust fan didn't do much. Also, as a vegan, I wasn't able to eat anything provided by the complimentary breakfast. =(

Cool summer getaway

Pros: Great breakfast that came with the stay. Puts the typical continental breakfasts at other hotels to shame. Both waiters were tops.
Cons: Trade out the toilets for elongated models. Beds a little firm, maybe a temporpedic mattress pad would do and save the cost of a whole new mattress.
Location: Close to the strip and the beach. Could walk to all.
Though the hotel is older, it has been kept up and reburbished regularly and quite comfortable. The grounds are nice and the staff very cordial. We were able to get in quite early since the room was ready. Saved us spinning our wheels waiting. Overall a nice stay.

Nice stay

Clean, a couple blocks from beach and casinos but very quiet - would definitely stay again. Only negatives were that the room would be quite small for two people and on property parking is somewhat limited.
