Everything you would want and more than you would expect in the small town of Empire! The room was brand new with quality finishes. The bed was very comfortable. You won’t be disappointed if you stay at Lakeshore.
We stayed in the new building with a lower floor room. No issue with sound as others noted and I am very light sleeper. Empire has put white noise machines in the room which was greatly appreciated.
Very clean rooms. They are brand new, Bedding and pillows were super comfortable and no issues with the shower.
Room has a microwave and fridge so you can stock up on some food!
