This hotel is a cute building, located close to the airport. Although weather didn't cooperate, the grounds look nice. From the pictures and reviews, I expected this to be more of "boutique" hotel than it is. Rooms are nice and clean, but lobby furniture is kind of stiff, and toiletries offered in room are standard issue from the Choice Hotels...

Dear lisammclean, Thank you taking the time to review us regarding your recent stay. We must apologize for the error the front desk agent made in calling you at 1:30am. While it is our standard policy to call guests to see how your room is after you check in, it is certainly not our policy to do so at such...

This hotel is a fantastic value! I was in an executive suite and it was $119 per night for a room with a fireplace and king-size bed. I loved the mini fridge and sink! As well, I went downstairs for coffee and I was too early, so the person at the front desk went and made a cup for me!...

I have stayed at the Inn on the Lake several times while working at the airport. it is only 5 minutes away and lots of free parking. The service provided by the staff is efficient and super friendly. The rooms range from very nice to spectacular. Oliver's pub has a great atmosphere, good beer ,super service and excellent food. The...

The rooms were as expected, good size, beds comfortable. The lake was a bit smelly, but that has nothing to do with the hotel, and could have been the time of year - just something we noticed, the grounds just kind of smelled of sewage. Aside from that we enjoyed our stay, and wouldn't hesitate to book here again.

My daughter and I stayed here for a couple of nights before moving west. A lovely room. It faced the highway, but there was little traffic noise while we were trying to sleep. We heard a few voices through the walls during the evening, but it wasn't enough to keep my daughter awake. One of the perks I liked was...

The Staff were very cheery and helpful. The room was a tad old, but comfy none the less. Quiet. Parking was a nuisance due to some construction. It seemed like we were parked as far from the room as possible. Beyond that it was easy to get in and out of a very busy area.

This restaurant and pub consistently provide good value for money in quality food and excellent service at reasonable prices. The wine list is somewhat limited but there are several styles of wines available by the glass and for a small rural location, a decent selection of bottles. Food is consistently well prepared and well presented.

We have stayed here several times now. It is a favorite place to go for our anniversary or whenever we would like a special getaway. We always take care to book a room with a whirlpool tub. The rooms are very cozy and romantic and we are treated so nicely by the staff. I love the location. It's close to...

You will find many room options at Inn on the Lake - I stayed in two during my visit. The first was a lovely room on the 3rd floor with fireplace and jet tub in the bathroom. Unfortunately, I had to switch rooms due to the noise from another room. While the hotel has quiet hours, they do not enforce...

Nice rooms, good service, great food. Stayed for a getaway weekend for our anniversary. In room hot tub was great. A little noisy but worth it. Stayed in January, during a snow storm, so obviously didn't get to use outdoor pool.
