Lake views are worth it
Not bad for being on a lake, it isnt the fanciest of places but employees were friendly, had activities for the weekend and majority of the rooms all face the lake.

Get ready to wait
I stood in line to check in for 30 minutes. When I finally got checked in I went to my room and the key card didn’t work. So I got back in an even longer line and waited for it to be fixed. They needed at least one more staff member working. Hotel/resort is dated, but this wasn’t a surprise to me.
