Good hotel with excellent service, excellent location, a little old.

The location is great being right across from the Shepler's Dock. The lobby is beautiful as well as the front porch. The hot tub was out of service as well as the sauna which would have been nice to know. We stayed on the 4th floor which is only accessible by elevator. Ice machine not on same floor.

Beautiful hotel. Pool was indoor which we didn’t realize and was great because we didn’t have great weather. Most rooms border pool so glad that they abide by the pool times. Not a good hotel I’d you have young children you want asleep before ten, as you’ll hear all thre pool noise.

Great location wonderful room with huge hot tub. Drop off breakfast at door in morning. I am definitely staying at this hotel again. Luggage was dealt with easily.

Good location, friendly staff. Smaller room, but comfortable.

It was a great location and a very good value for the cost.

This place was amazing, the staff INCREDIBLY helpful and knowledgeable of the locale and the entertainment. I would highly recommend this to any and all future travelers.

Nice room. Very friendly staff. Great location. Recommended

This place is the worst. In the midst of a pandemic, their "shared bathroom" is one tiny bathroom with the smallest sink ever for seven rooms!! In your own bedroom, it is so tiny that luggage can't fit. And there isn't a mirror in the bedroom either, so even when you're done showering in the bathroom, you need to occupy it to get everything else done as well, allowing for long wait times to use the facility. Do not stay here. Spend a little extra money and get another hotel room on the island that gives you more space and your own bathroom! Especially during these difficult times with COVID. Be safe!

Close to everything walking to places, good trails nearby

The property is conveniently located to all the attractions, however the service leaves a lot to be desired. Waited to receive our luggage for several hours, even after giving all the info and tickets to the front desk. Finally in the late evening I had to go search for them myself.

It was close to everything. Some of the staff were wonderful. There was one woman behind the front desk with a constant scowl on her face - not pleasant.

Being on the island was awesome! It has a nice porch to sit and relax on and people watch. The only thing we didn't like was the inside view room of the pool. Wish we had a street view.

Liked historic hotel, staff and amenities. Overall appearance very pleasing.

The staff and hotel were excellent overall. We loved the location and especially the balconies overlooking Main Street The breakfast was great, with plenty of places to sit, including outside on the deck. My only suggestion would be to replace the beds, which weren’t very comfortable and the headboard was at an awkward height.

when u pay nearly $400 for a room, u expect a complete hotel room Our room was a decent sized room,but the half with a couch and a desk for reading,etc. had ABSOLUTELY NO LAMPS IN THAT AREA.Very strange,and I don't think they cared,one way or another. Also,we were directly above the swimming pool,which had very noisy kids tll closing at 10;pm. My wife, a doctor was at a medical convention. She was also suffering with an ailment,that swimming would help alleviate. I would like an apology from the Lakeview,but I would be amazed if that happens Thank you. Dick and Joanne Guttman

It’s a very old hotel with a beautiful porch to watch everything going on! Nice indoor pool if the weather is bad!
