My wife and I stay at the Horseshoe Resort for a quick getaway. We weren't expecting much as it was still a bit early in the season and a last minute booking. Many activities were also not available for this reason. SERVICE The staff was extremely friendly, and helpful upon arrival, and throughout our stay. The concierge gave us a... More

When I seen the wag jag package for this resort! I thought wow! Perfect! A great family getaway for a family of 6 before going back to school! I did research before booking this package so I thought I would be staying in a renovated condo! NO WAY! The guy at the front desk said all 8 were taken, so... More

We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom "Slope Side" condo's Aug 9th & 10th and we were very disappointed in the property overall. Specifically, the condo was discussing and the decor very dated and banged up, probability looked great in 1979 however it is long overdue for an update. The carpet was covered in stains and no one in... More

4 of us came to the Horseshoe resort after purchasing a wagjag deal for the adventure park. I should have done my homework better. I should have just booked a room for less money since we were not able to use any of the facilities due to lack of time and ability. Our rooms were nice, overlooking the golf course,... More

We enjoyed two nights at the Horseshoe Resort with our young children. Service was terrific, especially Ivan at the front desk. So helpful and friendly! Meals at Crazy Horse restaurant were pretty good and service was fast. I enjoyed that the Adventure Park was open to the public and that you didn't necessarily have to pay for all the activities...

We had to ask multiple times for tickets and supper supplies which were supposed to be included. Lines were way too long at adventure park. We waited for some rides for up an hour. Pools were very cold.

My husband, three sons and I spent this past weekend at Horseshoe. I can't say enough about the staff...extremely friendly and professional. The hotel and grounds were clean and it is a gorgeous property, but the website is very misleading. I was under the impression that all the things on your Adventure Park video were included, but very sadly, found... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Horseshoe despite the weather. Unfortunately it meant we couldn't enjoy all that Horseshoe had to offer. I was pleased to notice how friendly and helpful all the staff were. Every time I encountered staff of any function, I was directly engaged in a friendly and professional manner even if it was only passing in... More
