The rooms are clean and the pool area is incredible. We stay during the busy football game weekends and still enjoy the five-star service from the staff! The breakfast buffet is good too. The location is quiet and relaxing.

I booked an overnight stay at this resort recently because it's reasonably close to home. I was very pleased. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Wayne, especially, was most informative and always offered to help. My husband was on crutches but I felt Wayne would've been the same w/o any physical disability noticeable. My son enjoyed the pool, in... More

Last weekend our family stayed at the Marriott to celebrate my son's 1st birthday. We had a wonderful time. We were allowed to check in early so the kids had a full day at the pool. We were also allowed to stay at the pool until 5pm after we checked out at 12. The pool was great for the kids... More

Attended a reunion at this Marriott and was very impressed with every aspect...from the ease of check in to the beautiful pool and surrounding golf course. Did not have time to use these facilities but I can see where this could be an amazing destination getaway. What I liked best? The bathroom had a very nice bathtub AND a separate... More

I recently attended a conference at this property. The grounds are very nice, great setting back in the woods. The hotel itself is attractive and well kept with an open and welcoming lobby. The front desk staff was very open, friendly and helpful. The disappointment came with the room. I registered for my function late and had to take a... More

We recently stayed at this hotel for an annual golf trip. We previously stayed off the property at another hotel, but decided to stay here this year. The room was no different from other similar hotel chains (that offer a free breakfast). The bathroom as a little nicer since it had a separate tub and shower. The biggest advantage for... More

Have to say this is one of best resorts I have been to in some time. Hotel staff is great, grounds are clean and the entire property has something for everyone!

Kudos to the lovely night manager that checked us in and took perfect care of us. I'm sorry I can't remember her name. After a long day of preparing the boys new home while they are at AU, our clerk gladly got us more towels and sundries. She was a wealth of information. The only drawback was our waitress at... More
