We took an impromptu 3 day get away from Cleveland to Wheeling. Its an easy drive south on I-77 from Cleveland, just over 2 and 1/2 hours. Traffic light and scenery pretty.
Staff was very friendly and accommodating. We were given our room and soon discovered it was a very long walk from parking. My husband has health problems so I went back to registration and we were given a different room slightly closer to parking. The room, even with the upgrade to intermediate was adequate. No refrigerator, no guide to television channels and the air conditioner sounded like a small jet on take off. The bath tub showed some mildew and dirt seemed ground into the safety treads on the bottom of the bath.
The staff is exceptional and cordial. Food at the restaurants was good, nice try on the vegan choices, but not stellar.
The best thing about the resort is the variety of things to do; a small zoo, museums, both indoor and out door pools. The scenery is breath taking, fresh and bright and green!!!
Don't hesitate to make your needs known when you make a reservation, it will eliminate little glitches to an otherwise very pleasant stay.
