6/10 Good

Disappointing - you pay for the view but that’s it
The view is great, the room was ok, tired and needs updating but the overriding smell of damp and mould that came from the bathroom ruined the vibe of the views. Cutlery wasn’t clean and I had 2 spiders to contend with too.
Mould in the bathroom
More mould and dirt - would you touch the window to open it!?

A bit run down. Could do with a tidy up especially for the price.

2/10 Poor

I actually think Expedia is partly at fault for not vetting this property, which is not only not a 3 star but fails to meet the minimum standards of hygiene and cleanliness for basic accommodation. There were hairs on the sheets, gross effluvia on the duvet covers, crumbs all over the couch, and grime everywhere in the corners, including the bathroom. It's a classic roach motel in other words, and every review here about cleanliness should be regarded as suspect, unless I got the only dirty one, which seems highly unlikely. I get that everyone is short staffed--it's a bad time, still--but there are some basic things one has to do when running a motel and cleaning seems like step one.

8/10 Very good

Amazing view of lake and mountains. Short easy walk into township. Good old fashioned motel.Comfortable bed. Kitchenette unit very basic. Just needs a good dedicated cleaner and not rely on guests to clean as we had to wash the dishes on arrival.
