Our stay here was very relaxing. The room was awesome and very clean. My husband enjoyed the golf and I relaxed and enjoyed the pool. Everyone was nice from the time we checked in until we checked out. WE will be back it is our new favorite place.

This was our fifth trip to the Ellington. My first stop is always to see Marilyn Guarino and get the arts and crafts schedule for the week. I have learned so much from her from painting on glass, to making shell wreaths and this visit I learned to design flower wreaths. I also was taught to make wreaths for all... More

Stayed in a two bedroom from April 19 thru April 24. Had a first floor unit directly across from the pool area which was nice since we did not have to lug our baggage up the stairs. Units was clean and spacious but definately needed upgrading. Counters in the kitchen area were all chipped up. Old style tube televisions in... More

Check in / check out made simple. The 1br suite was clean and equipped with all of the necessities. We didn't take advantage of all of the amenities because it was a short stay, but my husband enjoyed the driving range. It would be nice to have a shuttle from the condos across from the main entrance to the golf... More

We were very pleased with the 1 bedroom second floor unit. The king-size bed was firm and comfortable. The unit was very clean and had adequate kitchen supplies. For ~$103/night including... More

Our original accommodation was not acceptable. The furniture was old and broken down. The door to the adjoining suite was left unlocked and people walked in on my wife and I. We were moved to an " updated " suite. It was better. The hallways were dirty, the cleaning service was to come mid- week with clean towels and to... More
