Temple Bar Motel

This is probably the only website where you can see  the interior accommodations at Temple Bar Motel, and we're here to tell you they are clean accommodations.  They are not fancy, but they are clean and the air conditioners work awesome.  When we visited Temple Bar in July 2008 it was 107F outside during the day, but inside the room those air conditioners would freeze you out if you didn't adjust them warmer.  We had to adjust our temperature control up to a comfortable 70F.  Although the room decor is from the 1970's, the beds are very comfortable.  We don't mean to discount the decor, only set your expectations correctly.  In our opinion the decor is just right because it's comfortable, you don't have to worry about the kids breaking something.  The amount of room inside each room isn't your typical hotel room either, it's MUCH bigger than usual so you aren't always "stepping on either other."  The extra large room simply make things feel more "at home".

All rooms have two full size beds, no options for queen or king.  Roll away beds can also be brought in for a small fee if you need a third small bed. The rooms come with a good shower/tub, toilet, sink, clothes rod in the bathroom and a wood bench appropriate for wet things to drip dry.  There is no hair dryer, no refrigerator, no microwave, and no coffee pot provided. 

There is a 19" TV  with 4 Las Vegas channels, table and chairs, and a dresser and mirror.  The room measures about 15'X30', a good size to hold a bunch of stuff, like skis, wakeboards, ice chests, etc.  Each room has 2 doors, with one that can open into an adjacent room on the other side of the motel. This provides easy access between two rooms of identical size and accommodations if needed.  If you don't know the folks in the room, simply leave it locked and you're safe.   

The lake view rooms have tables just outside the room overlooking the lake.  This is very nice and worth the extra $15/room.  There is no smoking allowed in the rooms, so you'll often find people sitting at these table smoking, and there are ashtrays provided.  You also get to park in right in front of your room in case you like to keep your stuff nearby. This also makes it easy to haul your ice chest in and out of the motel room.

There are no BBQ's allowed near the motel, totally forbidden, even gas powered portables.  You may want to consider bringing an electric skillet for in-room cooking of pancakes, burgers, etc.  Otherwise the resort restaurant provides good food for reasonable prices such as burgers, fries and 4 kinds of pizza.

Be forewarned, the motel can be booked up far in advance so call to check availability.  2008 has been easier than past years to get rooms because the cost of fuel has reduced visitation, so don't assume you can't get a room with short notice.

Wireless Connection

At the check-in office they have a wireless connection available to hookup to the Internet for free. You cannot get reception from the motel rooms, you need to be sitting in the office where you check in.  Some folks were able to pick up the signal at the restaurant next door, but it didn't work for us.  Others go into the bar which is closer to the access point.   TIP, when searching for the access point NO NOT try to connect to the one named Temple Bar (as logical as that sounds).  Use the one named "Linksys N".

Here's where you find most folks hanging out at dusk, waiting to take in the awesome sunsets as the sun goes down.  Seeing a Temple Bar sunset in person is an incredible experience.  Many boaters wind down the day with drinks and food at these tables just outside their rooms to talk about their experiences during the day.  Other are making plans for the next day to ski, fish, or wakeboard. 

 

Fishing at Temple Bar

Fishing is great from Temple Bar Marina simply because of less people on this part of the lake.  The resort is very fisherman friendly. You'll find a fish cleaning station at the top of the ramp to accommodate cleaning your catch.  The nearby ice machine provides you with the means to take your catch home too.
