DaveMow, thank you so much for your very comprehensive review of our hotel. We also have pontoons and a fishing boat for rent as well as bikes and kayaks/paddle boards for our guests to use free of charge.

Absolutely enjoyed the stay. The hotel thinks of everything to make your stay a joy, with the complimentary canoes, bikes, fishing rods, etc. Our lakeside room was perfect. The only thing that kept me from giving 5 stars was the service in the bar. Granted it was a holiday weekend, but there should have been an extra bartender on hand....

We were in town for my father's funeral. Members of the family stayed at the hotel and the rooms were clean, quiet and comfortable. We also had a get-together after the funeral in the Fireside Room by the pool. We ordered appetizers as well. The food was delicious and the hospitality was second to none. The staff checked in periodically...

My specific restaurant reviews have been posted for their restaurants onsite. When I arrived I was greeted quickly and nicely. I went up to my room with all of my luggage to come to find out I had an interior room overlooking a pool roof to the bathrooms and sink area. I called down to the desk and said I...

Jane S, I apologize that we did not exceed your expectations on your recent visit to our hotel. I researched your reservation to see if additional training was warranted with our reservation/front desk staff and found that Ultramar Travel Management had erroneously booked a standard room (non lakeside) for you at 4:58pm on 4/15/16. I also discussed the reservation with...

These are the places I love... Staying in a Hotel that has it all, great rooms, food, service and an awesome lake with docks, boats and swimming inside and out. In the winter it's just as great with snowmobiling, ice fishing, skiing sports near by. Food is excellent... From the in-house pizza to the fresh fish, beef and Sunday Brunch...

We booked 3 lake view rooms for a group gathering. Rooms exceeded everyone's expectations. Clean, updated, spacious rooms with a beautiful view of the lake. (Pillows and mattress were wonderful). Front desk staff were very friendly. Sunday brunch was excellent and a great value. We will definitely come back very soon.

Stayed on business. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful. Room was quiet, clean, and beds were firm and comfortable.

Senty7, thank you for taking the time to provide a very nice, comprehensive review of your recent stay with us.

Great views of the lake from the restaurant, lounge, and select guest rooms. I really enjoyed the inexpensive breakfast with a view. There is even a nice walking path that goes down around the lake a bit. Guest room hallways need an update (just dark and outdated) which I understand is in the works based on past reviews.

We checked in very easily, the room itself was great, had a microwave and refrigerator that we weren't expecting, BUT we were overlooking the pool and it was very loud until 12:00 am. The king bed was very comfortable and you get free wi-fi access.

Ms. Morse, thank you taking the time to review our hotel. Sounds like you had a great time but the pool area got a little loud for you. Next time you should visit when it's warmer out and get one of our lakeside rooms overlooking 700 feet of sandy beach on Big Detroit Lake. Hope to see you again soon....
