We were in a bind to find lodging when my husband saw a groupon for this location. He purchased it . . . Clearly, the facility has seen better days. It isn't pristine, nor is it up-to-date in appearance. To give a hashtag, might be #the70'sweregood. However, I can say, while I didn't go barefoot in the room, the sheets... More

Though it advertises itself as a resort, except for having a detached inside pool, it's anything but a resort. It's just a Motel 6 with cabins. Internet service was poor the whole time there. The beds were average, low-grade and the pillows were hard. The carpet appeared to be old and worn. We stayed in Room 7 of the West... More

I should have had a clue when I walked in the front office and it smelled of old, stale and mildew. Hallway floors were tattered, had cob webs up the wall. The three days we were there I NEVER saw anyone clean anything!!! Our room smelled stale and of mildew. The strong air freshener smell told me they were just... More

Maybe the reason some reviews praise this place & others show dissatisfaction has to do w/ which room is occupied. We got stuck in the outbuilding - our room had ratty blankets and old sheets. Nothing in the room matched. The room was permeated with a sweet air freshner - very unpleasant. This made Motel 6 look like a luxury... More

We booked a cottage for $89 but when we arrived, the friendly woman at the front desk told me the rooms were going for $79 and refunded the extra $10 to me. She let us look at a room instead of a cottage but we chose the cottage. It was a huge cottage, very roomy with a small screened-in porch... More

My husband and I stayed for a week end with a groupon so it was inexpensive but the place is beat! Even at a discounted rate not worth the trip. It seemed like it has not been upgraded in years. Even the sheets old and dingy!

I would not call this place a resort, by any stretch of the imagination. I stayed here for a night earlier this summer and it serviced its purpose. I bought the night on Groupon and it was a good deal. We arrived around 10PM and the place was shut down. I found our room key in an envelope by the... More

Beacon vacation a memory from childhood, then with my kids, now with grandchild. When I called to reserve and said we were 3rd generation I was told nothing much has changed. So true. Meaning nothing has been updated or repaired. Front door of our room only locks with chain (broken knob lock). Room door opening to indoor pool area stuck... More

I really looked forward to this trip as I had heard about the Beacon Resort for years. But we never stayed there. The employees at the resort were all very nice and helpful. But honestly the place was very dirty. Area's were not cleaned the three days we were there. The rugs were just plain dirty. Dust everywhere. I enjoy... More
