My wife and I stayed here on a Saturday night in October. We stayed in a room located in the Hermitage building. I have to give the hotel two separate ratings, so please bear with me. In recognition of the grounds, the scene as you drive up the driveway towards the main hotel, the view from the front of the hotel overlooking the lake, I don't know that you can beat this facility. For that, I would rate views/scenery a 5 out of 5. The lobby and check-in process could not be more pleasant or professional. I was given clear directions on how to get to the Hermitage building, and off we went.
The room is a 2 level room with a living room, seating area, along with a tiny kitchen equipped with a small refrigerator and a two burner electric stove downstairs. Upstairs was our king bed, television in a wooden cabinet, closet and bathroom. Keeping in mind the rate this hotel charges, we had the following criticism. The refrigerator and two burner electric stove top were archaic at best. The refrigerator struggled to keep a cool temperature. The couch and easy chair were well worn and one of the couch cushions had a burn mark in an alleged non-smoking unit. Above the television was a well developed cobweb that was very obvious. Upstairs, the housekeeping woes continued, as on top of the television cabinet we found a layer of dust, some dead bugs, and a July edition of a real estate sales magazine. It is safe to say that had been there a while. In the bathroom, there is an old school bathtub with sliding glass doors which has been retro-fitted with a low, low flow shower head. Above the shower head is a slanted alcove where the bedroom closet is. Again, this piece of wall was coated in dust, as was the bathroom vent. Lastly, the toilet seat was very, very loose. It slid all over when you sat on it. Not sure it was even attached. The bed was comfy, so that was nice. Overall, I would have to give the room a 2 out of 5. Given the price of this resort, this room ends up north of $300, it's really quite disappointing. I mean, apart from the grounds/views/scenery, you'd be better off staying for much cheaper at any of the 101 roadside motels you pass on the way to the resort. Then for the day, go up and use the grounds and enjoy The Sagamore views. I guess it's true that you really do pay for the view.
