My family and I have stayed here for years. Its very pleasant. Its not too far from anything. We usually take the golf from the villages to the hotel. The hotel has a good breakfast (although they should have some more things to place on their omelettes). Rita usually cooks breakfast and is super friendly. She has been doing this... More

We stayed here this year for Thanksgiving and we're really disappointed. #1. At check in they gave us a room with guests already in it. So we almost walked into someone else's room but they had the deadbolt locked. #2. We got to our room on the third floor it smelled odd, musty and like mildew. Our room always felt... More

I was here over Thanksgiving and it was packed. The staff was friendly and courteous, and the room was clean and inviting. Breakfast was outstanding... Real food. My only complaint was that the bathroom (nice and spacious) was too dim, but at $75/night I'm not complaining! A great stay.

Older hotel but has been updated. Our bath had a constant drip and the sink took a long time to drain but the room was very clean and well attended. The breakfast was outstanding and so well organized...one of the best I have experienced. All the staff very attentive and friendly. Would definitely stay there again.

We were at the hotel for a family birthday celebration with about 50 people. The hotel staff could not have been mere helpful, polite or efficient. Jennifer was our main point of contact and was outstanding. She made the difficult easy. Rita was responsible for the hotel breakfast. She was courteous, efficient, thoughtful and always cheerful.
