This was my first time ever there and I have to say I was impressed!!! We were a very large group and the staff was amazing.

As the organizer of a winter getaway weekend for 120 scrapbookers and many outside vendors, things can be difficult at times. From the moment I toured The Golden Inn in April, to the reservation process, to the planning, to the set up of the scrapbooking/vendor tables, classrooms, meals, etc. the managers - Jackie, Charlotte and Jen - made me feel...

We came on site for a Winter Leadership Retreat with about 60 college students and the staff was incredible to work with! They were accommodating, friendly and in the few days the staff got to know our students by name which was so nice! Overall great experience and I hope we can use the space again in the future. There... More

Although the hotel seems in the "midst" of renovations, the room I was given was clean and prepared. The food during meals was good with a variety of options. I would change "brunch" time to 11-1 vs. 9-11, but that may have been a coordination effort with our group. Staff was very friendly and accommodating.

Thoroughly enjoyable weekend. The staff was awesome..totally helpful, but not overbearing! With more than 100 women and scrapbooking around the clock, I'm sure the staff worked very hard to keep everyone happy. Food was excellent!

We stayed for a long weekend in early December. Hotel was beautifully decorated for the holiday. They have a nice fireplace in the lobby across from the bar. We sat there for hours one night - talking and laughing over drinks and the staff kept the fire stoked all night! Only negative was the cheerleaders staying there - they were... More

When I arrived around 4PM, I paid my portion of the balance with cash; my friends had arrived earlier and also paid cash. Later that evening my husband called to inform me that my credit... More

Dear Deborah, The authorization of a guests credit card for damages and incidentals is a hotel industry standard. Even Hilton and Marriot follow this practice. A call to your credit card company will also confirm that not only is this a standard practice, that it is 100% legal. I believe this was explained to you by our Manager on Duty... More
