Upon being shown to room after I had paid for 4 nights I saw that there was building crane in front of motels right on the lake and very much a part of the view of the lake. Building work apparently started in November 2019. Building work took place 8am to 5.30/6pm. I had not been told by expedia or motel about this. I booked expensive lake view stay here at motel to relax which was difficult. The noise could be heard in room when door and windows shut. After days of trying to negotiate compensate for this situation and owner not willing to negotiate I accepted the sum she offered. I also had calls with expedia who intervened also in the matter. Wasn't impressed with the motel for hiding the building works and not sharing information prior to check in. I was given one free laundry load as compensation.Motel kitchenette was very basic 2 pieces of set of crockery and cutlery. Only a microwave and although you could cook in it without Tupperware or there being other forms of crockery to prepare meals in it was impossible. There was a sign by the owner restructuring certain foods to be cooked hence lack of crockery for meal preparation made sense. Shower pressure was weak for washing hair but doable for shower. Studio lounge and bed were comfortable. View of lake was pretty and bench outside room was nice to sit on. Motel managed by young German ladies acting as cleaner and manager. Main owner won't be there. Overall impression - expensive stay, good location, building works
