We loved all the deer right in the yard and they would eat right out of your hands. The pool was clean but very cold, but we did take a dip, just once, after all it was Jan!! We would come back to this place again.

As far as resorts go, this one is right in the middle. There are some really pretty parks to picnic at with playgrounds for the kids overlooking the lake. The best part of staying at The Shores is enjoying the abundant deer roaming around. Being some deer corn with you so you can throw feed out your back door. It... More

We went thinking it was a good hotel for the price. We were very wrong. It is old. And now you can't go near the lake. The pool is small and people that are not guests use it... It says it has two bathrooms but only one has a shower!! The main one has a jacuzzi but no shower... Really... More

I wish I was on here to complain only about the out dated décor/appliances and the spotty wifi. After the one night experience we had at The Shores of Lake Travis I would take cracked counter tops and 70's style restrooms in a minute, over the disgusting bed bugs that filled our sheets and pillows. Our first night there my... More

Other reviews have indicated this property is not close to attractions or towns. While this is true, the remoteness is one reason to like the property as a place to explore the Texas Hill Country. Austin is not far, and Marble Falls is about an hour away. Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge is near Lago Vista, but because of the... More

When we walked to door it was covered with spiders and cobwebs-that was a very poor beginning! As we walked in there was a hole in wall behind door and it went downhill after that. The back patio was the same way-no maintenance and full of cobwebs. The lamp shades were same. The walls were covered in mirrors from the... More

This was a quiet relaxing place for a family vacation. The rooms were clean and spacious, the beds were very comfortable and the staff was outstanding. The facility wasnt on par with RCI standards but were very nice for being almost 35 years old. The furniture and decor were very solid and texas themed. The kids had a blast feeding... More

We stayed a week to enjoy the Texas Hill country and enjoyed it very much. The staff was most helpful. Although we did not participate in the deer feeding until the last two days, we enjoyed it very much. The deer come right up to your patio and will eat out of your hand. The staff have corn for you... More

Overall, we enjoyed our stay at The Shores at Lake Travis, but there is room for improvement. The service of the staff was good. They were quick to answer any question we had and were quite helpful throughout our week-long stay. Our kids enjoyed our time in the pool. We also enjoyed the upgraded master bathroom. Beyond those items, it... More

Stayed in a unit that needs updating, Especially the bathrooms, but overall, it was fine for us. It was an easy drive to Austin to see the sights, etc. the staff were very friendly and willing to answer all questions and help. The fitness center up the hill had plenty of variety for those who do strength and aerobic exercise.... More
