Had a three night stay. Room not ready when we arrived (we were arrived at 1, so it was reasonable room not ready. Room ready at 4, standard room in which there was a 14 inch step up to get in the bathroom. We both have knee issues and expected the middle of the night trip in going in the bathroom, but thankfully no issues. Furniture was dated and room was right over the entrance way to the hotel. Golf was pretty good except nobody moves along the idiots who play golf once a year and need to hit three shots off the tee box followed by 15 minutes looking for the first two shots. Five plus hour rounds are normal. Dinner on Friday night in the ballroom was quite the experience - arrived 15 minutes late for an 8:00 reservation and was told since we were late, no tables were currently available in the main ballroom. Finally seated at 8:45 and every course was awful- oysters Rockefeller were cold followed by a tasteless bisque, then the lamb shank was bland.
Checked out on Sunday and received my $3,000+ folio. Questioned a $65 charge which turned out to be a breakfast the Friday morning (yes it is 30+ a person for an omelet). I specifically asked on check in when the meal plan started and the desk clerk said Friday morning, so we went and enjoyed the omelet. The clerk at check out explained my meal plan began Friday night, not Friday morning, and was not moved by my explanation that we were told meals began on Friday morning. So, I paid the additional $65 with a promise that was the last straw for the Homestead. Imagine in business arguing over that charge when the customer just spent over 3k.
So in summary, old and outdated, poor service and way over the top pricing - what more could you ask for on a vacation.
