We wanted a place to just relax for a couple of days ... this hotel was a good place for that. A lakeside room with a nice view, a cozy patio to enjoy some wine and cheese and a comfortable room for our stay. Meals here were very good but food and drinks were a bit pricey. Easy walk from...

Friendly people at the inn. We had a room with the best view of the lake. The rooms are nice and big. I have the feeling that the hotel needs some renovation, especially the bathrooms. I know renovations of hotels are very expensive! We had a few meals. All but one were very good. Had twice a quiche for breakfast......

My husband and I attended a conference here and despite letting them know in advance of our need of vegan meals, we were overlooked. We never expect much from breakfast buffets so I wasn't terribly disappointed to find home fries, toast, and fruit to be the only things we could eat. However, I did expect more from lunch. There wasn't...

This hotel seems to be going down hill. The main lobby area and restaurant are nice and the outside area is beautiful in the summer but they really need to do some renovating to the rooms, it's very outdated. We stayed for one night and the price was not worth it for the room we had. We stayed on a...

The hotel is gorgeous, and staff is generally friendly. This is my first time here and will absolute never be back. My husband and I changed our reservation just for the jacuzzi room and spent 150+ extra for the weekend for the jacuzzi tub in the room and it dosent work AT ALL. The front desk told us their maintenence...

The hotel is right on the lake which is a plus. That can also be a problem in the summer months if you are looking for a quiet place to look over the lake due to the bar on the water. The hotel is tucked back behind the culinary institute and it really is nothing to look at from the...

We booked a weekend "B&B" package which included a King Suite that was very disappointing given the nightly room rate. As mentioned in other reviews, the room was very much in need of updating, especially the bathroom which was embarrassing for an establishment of this caliber. We booked this hotel based on attending a wedding we attended this past September...

We stayed at the Inn on the Lake for a friend's wedding at the end of December. The lobby was nicely decorated and it felt festive. The front desk was pleasant and efficient to get our room sorted. Our room was on the second floor and faced the parking lot. The ceiling was low and the room felt very small...

We spent two nights at the Inn, and have been there several times before. The location of the hotel on the lake is excellent with very nice views from lake view rooms or the patio. We had a two bedroom suite, and I believe it was advertised as "Two Queen Beds". However, the beds were only double beds and a...
