Other Comments: Hotel was old, room was very small. Bathroom was slightly dirty and in desperate need of updating. The food in the restaurant was pretty poor.

Enjoyed Most: Beachfront view was great. Front desk staff was very accommodating.
Other Comments: King bed beachfront room on first floor was very small and right next to parking lot. Front desk person was really nice and switched our room to a top floor double bed room which had a great view of the lake.

Enjoyed Most: Everything is great but the best part is the staff. Jeremy at the front desk is amazing! He is so professional, kind, and accommodating. Also D, Kristie and Mara at the Tavern are wonderful. They truly make you feel at home. They also make the best cocktails! The housekeeping staff are so nice and they work so hard and do an awesome job. I love this hotel and it will always be my first choice in SLT.
