Its been a long time since a motel owner has shown us personally to our room, but this happened to us when we stayed at Baycourt Lakefront. He (Joseph) pointed out to us the way to receive the best from the facilities, which by the way, were lovely and clean, lots of spare bedding and extra towels. We loved staying there and we loved the way we were treated, even though we were only staying one night. Our new favourite place to stay.

For a family of 5 - the property is very squishy. One bedroom is great for the parents to stay in but the other room - you needed to move all the furniture around so the beds could fit. They went above and beyond to get a bed into the space - with an electric blanket - but the other 2 children had to sleep on the sofa bed which didn't have an electric blanket and were therefore cold. The heater was quite noisy too - so couldn't have that on all night. The location is close enough so that you can walk to restaurants as it was quite pretty walking along the lake on dusk. Parking is also very squishy for a big car - but the do offer off street parking. Staff a very friendly.

Thanks for the review. Sorry if you felt the room is a bit cramped. We have the option to remove the furniture to create enough space for the sofa bed. Let's do that on your next stay. Cheers!
