Thanks again for a great stay. Charm of an older resort, but all great updates. Fabulous new bed, beautifull new shower. Work out and pool facilities awesome and clean. Food was spectacular. Will recommend to many.

Rooms were mediocre at best. Sink detaching from the wall. No mini frig. No microwave. Wanted to go somewhere to stay(park the car and not have to leave for a few days). Dining room closed for memorial service (which they could have told us about when we arrived) Saturday we went out for dinner and came back to have a... More

This is a very nice place and location but because of loud noises, you just cannot sleep there. There were constant weddings and parties there on both nights that I stayed with very loud music and noise until midnight. I tried to drown it out with my tv and iPhone sounds but could not do it. As a person who... More

This was a great get-a-way for getting our recruit to some peace and quiet. Only 25 easy minutes away to RDC. Great staff, great food, great surroundings! Also was given a great discount for Navy graduation. This may not be a 5 Star hotel so no complaining if you find something wrong. Enjoy the positives!!!

I chose this hotel because it has a pet friendly policy. The location in the middle of Illinois State Beach Park was great. If someone would take the time and money and invested in this rundown hotel it would be awesome. To keep his review shored that is how I will sum up the hotel very run down. The housekeeping...

I do understand that the resort is under construction, but that is not an acceptable excuse for its poor housekeeping or maintenance. My family and In-laws stayed here for a little getaway Saturday - Sunday. We had booked two rooms, which was very pricey for the condition. We made reservations months in advanced but still were on opposite sides of... More

This isn't a review of the actual hotel, because we weren't even able to stay there. We have a family of 6 (four kids 5 through 11), and they don't allow that many people in one room. Fine - that's not an uncommon problem for us. They told us we needed two rooms (which is reasonable and we were willing... More

I made reservations for this hotel through Travelocity. I contacted the hotel before our arrival to make sure there was wifi in the rooms as my husband was oncall the weekend of our stay. I was told he would be fine. After we checked in, he of course had a high ticket assigned and needed to log into work. The... More

Quick close get away for us. Rooms are nice, clean but older. Restaurant was amazing. Prices very low and quality very high. I would suggest this place to anyone looking for great views and thousands of acres of nature to walk.

The room were very outdated. There was a leak that never got rectified. The shower plug was missing that got fixed by putting a plug in it! The receptionist was helpful but completely lacked social skills. We won't ever stay again!
