Very friendly helpful staff. Even Ruby,the cat,made sure we felt relaxed and happy. Some minor maintenance issues need attention eg: the fridge icebox door and the main door do not shut properly,unit needs a repaint. I twice stubbed my toe on the leg of the table which is missing a rubber tip. Shower was amazing. The position of this Motel is great as it is right opposite the main swimming beach and the view of the lake and mountains is wonderful. Thank you to all the happy,cheerful staff
