Great historic building; overall mixed
Historic hotel, used to be great, but is not being maintained as it should. The building itself is impressive, the pool very nice. Views of the lake are great (if you book the right room). The restaurant seems very outdated and is not meeting expectations for a hotel of this quality.

2/10 Poor

The or conditioner didn’t work. We paid for a lake front suite but the overbooked and we had a back parking lot view. We were given a suite that had four twin beds in it that were more like cots. When we complained to the front desk, this is not what we reserved they responded with this is all that’s available. Terrible customer service. I will never stay here again!

8/10 Very good

The food at the hotel restaurants is mediocre and the breakfast is awful. We ended up eating elsewhere - not good when you paid for breakfasts. The location, service and grounds are good. The rooms need some refreshing as they look tired but they are clean and the housekeeping is excellent. In overall, we enjoyed our stay, thank you.
