Anniversary stay

The hotel room was clean but nothing too fancy. The refrigerator was not working well. We sayed at ground level harbor side. The view was great but cobwebs everywhere on the windows, and ledges. There was not enough outside chairs. If someone called foe chairs they were taken from someone elses patio. Then when we would go out in the morning the chairs were gone. The fire alarm went off at 3 am and we either had to go,outide or to the lobby. The reasturant we had lunch at The Waterfront was really great we sat outside and had a good burger and drinks on our anniversary..

    Abbey is a little shabby

    A bit of a letdown. We always heard the Abbey was high end but the room was kind of run down, cleaning staff had towels and rubber gloves strewn across the hall, it took 6-8 hours before anyone picked up room service trays in the hall, the building had no elevator (which was not mentioned when they asked which floor you'd like), the doors to the building don't lock at night even though there are signs that say they do, a firer alarm at 3 AM but no one from the hotel to come around and say what's happening or if it was Ok to go back in.

    Great Family Resort

    I'd recommend the Abbey to any family with small kids looking for a night away with plenty of kids activities. The pools are great, there is a beach across the street and a marina that has many rental options. The on-site options for food/beverage are convenient and quality. The walking trail around the lake is awesome and there is a 1/2-3/4 mile section near the hotel that is paved and stroller friendly.
