I wanted a quiet, relaxed weekend away from the hustle and bustle of Orlando, where my family and I could meet my old friends from Lakeland FL and have a relaxing time. Boy did we make a mistake in selecting this place. Quiet? No chance. On all online resources you will see charming waterways leading to a peaceful lake. They... More

We booked this hotel online and got a great price. The hotel is as pictured on the website. Very relaxing to sit on the balcony and look at the water. Our room was clean and the staff we had contact with was very friendly. Loved the way they folded the towels each day.

If you're looking for a four to five star resort, then you've come to the wrong place. As they say "It is what it is". I booked it through their website, which uses a third party for the actual booking. The cost for three nights was very reasonable. On arrival you might just be greeted by Jackie, a former New...

The resort was nice with a great view. Alligators came out at night. The morning staff were very rude, in fact when I asked for a receipt the girl threw it to me. She initially wouldn't give me one, which I found to be worrisome. Almost was overcharged when I did view my receipt. Also poor to no internet service.... More

Booked my room online. Pictures looked very nice, price was very reasonable. Get to the front desk only to be told by Lisa, that I would have to wait four hours before I could be put into a room, which is not what my reservation said. Obviously not a concern to her. No kind of help. Very poor customer service.... More

We stayed at the hotel last year for 2 weeks on vacation. It had a cool tiki bar and restaurant onsite. It was called Dockside. It had live entertainment every night. This year the breakfast was minimal at best . The property is getting more outdated each day and it has non restaurant anymore. A staff member said that the... More

Booked through Expedia. Excellent price. Arrived March 25. Room was clean and comfortable third floor over pool. No highway noise. Most staff were friendly and accommodating. Disappointed in "breakfast" as was just prepackaged muffins and danish during week. Weekend...fruit and bagels were added. I understand the resort is under new ownership and will be reopening their restaurant around June. Pool... More
