Unless you don't mind spending your well-deserved vacations on a construction site - complete with the machinery, the dirt, the noise and the construction workers starting at 7 a.m. - FORGET IT!
It is just a plain bad business decision to keep offering rooms (even for cheap on Priceline) while all this is going on... I feel sorry for the staff that has to explain (justify) charging a 20$/day "resort fee" while this is nothing of a resort and services are not offered.
The self-parking (17$/day) is far from the lodge and poorly lit at night, so bring a flashlight and watch your steps because the asphalt is badly damaged (when not flooded).
The exterior spa pool had major brown (rust?) stains around the drains, the water was somewhat greenish, and weeds grew in the cement cracks around the pool. Lots of empty lounge chairs, though...
The air conditioning in our room was antiquated and vents (not adjustable) spewed ice cold air directly at our heads when in bed. Very uncomfortable.
My recommendation - forget this place until next year. The 2014 World Golf Championships, Cadillac Championship is scheduled to take place there in March... and hopefully, the much needed makeover will be completed by then...
