Very friendly manager and staff, quiet and spacious and great location not far from the lake with all the facilities you need. Loved the inexpensive upgrade. Could easily have stayed longer - alas we had to move on.

It was quite hot during our stay, while we were given a electric fan it was not very efficient. The staff did the best they could with what they had.

No good on a hot day as the unit was hotter than the outside sun due to no ceiling insulation. this is the case for all rooms. Room was super hot until about 3am when the roof finally lost its heat, almost impossible to sleep. I assume its super cold in the winter? Run down but still clean and tidy, good friendly service 5/10
