Main outside pool is still broken, everytime I visit never open! Shampoo bottles in shower were empty, air conditioning did not work thankfully it wasn't too hot!!! And the worse part were the dogs that barked in the hallway everytime they entered or exited their room!! Crazy horse service was extremely slow, there were flies everywhere inside the restaurant....

My family loved the Horseshoe. There was something for everyone to do. The staff went above and beyond. It isn't a five-star place. In some places it is slightly rundown. Nonetheless, we had a blast and thought it was great. It is perfect if you seek a casual, comfortable resort for the family.

3rd stay on the property (2nd time in the condos) and it's really showing its age. Stained carpets, peeling wallpaper. We paid an insane amt for 2 nights (premium rate due to the Warrior Dash race) and were very disappointed. We arrived to garbage in the bag under the sink, and an old stove with the rear burner not working.... More

We needed a quick, local getaway and Horseshoe provided that opportunity. Travelling with my husband, and two children (under 11) our destination was the adventure park. We had driven there last year for a day (drove in an out) and this year we wanted to add the nights stay. Upon our arrival we learned that it was the "Warrior Dash"... More

My wife bought the WagJag deal for $399.00 for 2 nights that included the Park passes for 1 day. As soon as we walked into the room my 18 and 13 year old wanted to leave. The smell in the room was overwhelming, damp, mouldy. The floors were stained and sticky as were the tables. The place is well worn... More

We spent one night at the hotel part of this resort. The room was ok, nothing special, we had a room at the back, no view. There wasn't a tub, only a standup shower. The hotel outdoor pool was under construction. Isn't this the height of their season, they should be fully functioning. The indoor pool and hot tub were... More
