What we like was that breakfast was provided, my husband was able to fish, fish cleaning area, and it was clean. What I didn’t like was that it’s located close to highway 20 which you can hear the noise of passing cars other than that it’s an awesome place to stay, would come back.

Dear Anonymous, thank you for the 5/5 rating and for taking the time to review us! We do apologize for any disturbance you may have experienced due to our location, and are happy to hear you had an awesome stay otherwise. Next time you visit, we'd recommend booking a Waterfront room, if possible, as it's far more peaceful on that side of the property. See you again soon!

A Disappointing Stay

Pros: The reviews were the best part of this hotel. These led us to higher expectations.
Cons: The owners/managers should take a look at things from a guest's point of view.
Location: In the winter there is not much to do. There is a casino nearby.
Overall, despite the efforts of the young ladies at the front desk, we had the feeling that this hotel really does not welcome guests. The room was stone cold when we arrived. We were at pool end of the hotel overlooking a canal and some backyards, rather than the lovely lake scenes described by other reviewers. The room was noisy with traffic noise, people talking and doing other motel-type activities. There were signs posted everywhere, mostly pointing out things that we could not do. As hard as we looked we could not find any charm anywhere. There are no restaurants nearby, and the one that was recommended in the town nearby was closed. The breakfast came earlier than expected, which we really appreciated since we had a long travel day, but it was another disappointment. This might be a good spot for a summer stay when you fully understand what you are getting. It is not satisfactory for an overnight winter stay.

Nice & cozy place

Nice place to unwind. Quiet and kind of secluded getaway from the big city. Not so far from SF/Bay Area. Nice view of the blue lake from your room if you rent one of the back rooms. They have a big deck area in that back with lots of eating tables, seating, fire pits, bbq grills, etc overlooking the blue lake. Our lakeview room was clean, comfortable, cozy & just enough amenities. The only complain I had was it's hard to control the shower temperatures.
