We stayed at the King Copper Motel for one night and had booked the room over the phone. Since all rooms right on the lake were booked out, I asked for a king size bed room closest to the water in the v-shaped motel part. Check in was very friendly and even though they were re-doing the roads around the whole block of the motel (which the motel owners or employees did not know about beforehand), we had a great stay. Our room felt old but nice with some nice modern touches of decor and we had a great view of the water and harbor. No, it was not water front, but the ambiance made up for it. It's what we expected from an old harbor town and we can't wait until we get back to spend a few days instead of just staying overnight. The room was clean and kept up well. Wi-Fi was very slow with a weak signal but we were able to use it when putting our tablet close by the window.
