This is a circa 1950 property that is very tired and worn out. The only positives are the price, the lake and we weren't there very much. I was at the mercy of others who made the reservations, but I would have gladly paid more to stay somewhere else.

I stayed at the motel on 2/22/2014 and let me say I was skeptical after reading the reviews. I don't know if people who rented in this motel live in million dollar homes or what, but to expect a $80-$100 a night room ON THE LAKE with beautiful views to be a 5-Star hotel is beyond me. Ot was not...

The only thing that makes you want to stay is the water. The rooms look horrible from the outside its like you are pulling up to the Bates Motel. I mean really they could look better inside and out if you have to go up on price do so just update them please. I didn't even want to take pictures...

Aww man, I really wanted to like this place. I'm all about finding the best kept secret, kitschy, off the beaten path places and I must say my search continues. I'm honestly floored this is ranked as high as it is in the listing. While we weren't expecting fancy, we also weren't expecting broken either. The side/arm to the banquette...

Spent 4 days at Willow Beach Motel last summer. Just completed reservations for a week stay this time. My friend and I were/are on a tight budget and this is perfect for that reason. What makes this SO wonderful is it's clean, safe and serene! There were families, couples and just small groups staying there---but everyone was respectful of others---no...

We love Willow Beach and go there at least twice a year. This place is not a five star hotel-it has basic amenities but the location on the lake and the views are so worth it! You can literally pull your boat up to your room or put it in the boathouse (for no extra charge). They have a clubhouse...

My husband and I stayed 3 nights for a good price with a kitchenette (room 7)!! Room really needs some updating, but the views of Lake Hamilton make up for it. Staff was very nice and helpful with the area, since we had never been. Can't wait to come back!

I would have given this review an easy 4 stars if not for the thousands of cigarette butts littering the groungs. They do a good job of cleaning the rooms but I was really put off by the butts. The view is wonderful and cabin was fine for the three of us. We also met some nice people while we...

Driving up to a door covered with rust was the immediate turn-off. Bad directions also. Be advised no housekeeping. No refill on the coffee or condiments for the coffeemaker. No shampoo or conditioner. Older motel and the outdoor chairs show it--rust like elsewhere. The AC was the noisiest I have ever encountered. There was some mildew on the bathtub. The...

Took a chance & stayed here even though there were a few negative reviews. We knew that we would be gone most of the day & didn't want to spend a lot of money on a hotel. Our gamble paid off because this little hotel was exactly what we needed with a nice-sized room & fantastic location. There were a...
