We had never stayed at a Homewood before and we were immediately impressed by the excellent free dinner buffet including free beer & wine from 5-7pm. The dinner was better than any restaurant dinner that we've had in awhile, and breakfast was equally impressive. (For caffeine overload, just had to try the 4-flavors from the cappucino machine, and 8 different flavored syrups for the iced tea.)
Our king suite was a bit small, but the room and the entire hotel were new and very well decorated (like a 5-star hotel minus all the bell-boys). There were two flat screen TV's in the room, about 46" each. Staff was very friendly, especially the lady providing drinks in the restaurant.
Our only complaints were that the pool was temporarily closed, the bed was too soft (sunk in), and the air conditioner was very loud. The thermostat was guest-adjustable to almost any temperature. Shower water pressure was good, and the room came with at least 5 towels.
Brought my own secure wifi router that I connected to the in-room LAN and had no problems.
We took a nice walk around the lake (you may need mosquito spray) and borrowed a free DVD from the good recent selection in the hotel's library.
If Homewood management read this, I would suggest adding a covered front entry so guests don't get wet if it's raining while unloading baggage.
