It was OK, but not anything special. The pool is really nicer, but was not heated so did not use. Grounds are pleasant, but unsure why the lake is fenced off and trees hide it from view to a certain extent. Glad it was a quiet period; this is a big complex and could see it being very busy at times. Checkout seemed to take longer than it should in this computer age. Not sure what the extra "amenity fee" really got us; we were on a long trip and this is the only place that charged that, yet we got similar facilities at other hotels without an "amenity fee".
