Take heed of the string of reviews from people who booked at the Catfish Bend, but instead were placed at the Pzazz Resort -- a very different hotel that is worn down and definitely not worth what you are charged for the Catfish. I brought my mother into town for a family funeral, arriving at the time that I specified in our reservation, and was told that we'd been "placed at our other property." Upon objecting I was told it's "not as bad as it looks," but it most definitely was -- from the smelly dumpster out front to the tattered decor. I immediately contacted the customer service team at Agoda who attempted to work this out with the Catfish Bend, but the management would not work with them to resolve the situation, stating that the fee was no-refundable as stated in the reservation. So, as you read the reviews, do not fault the booking agents these rooms are being sold through. The issue seems to lie with the Catfish Bend. I would have accepted a no refund policy had I actually been housed at the hotel whose photos I check and whose link I clicked. Beware of booking here.

Becky - I am so sorry that, ultimately, we did not meet your expectations. When reservations come into our system from whatever source we do process them as received. Again, I apologize that clearly there was some miscommunication in that process. If you would like for me to investigate further, I'm happy to do so. Please contact me at Catfish Bend Inn as I will need more information in order to determine what went wrong.

Interesting place with bars restaurants and a casino all a bit dated for my liking but on the plus side the Catfish rooms are large and well appointed. The staff are friendly and can’t do enough for you. I would definitely stay here again on business but perhaps not with my family.

Hotel was very nice and clean. The staff was very nice and friendly. It’s nice they offer both a adult and kids resort into one. They have great food choice. The rooms very clean and so was the bathroom.

Frankly, don't expect too much, but this is a comfortable, well laid out hotel. My only complaint is the availability of power outlets for devices. Breakfast buffet that comes with the room is a nice feature. While attached to the casino, it's usually pretty quiet and you don't need to partake of the casino environment unless you wish to.

We stayed here for a quick weekend for St. Patrick's Day. Cass at check in was very welcoming. The room was decorated nicely. However, the TV mounts need attention to detail as they make the room look terrible (see picture attached). The bed was great with alot of pillows. The room was extremely quiet. The temperature wouldn't go down past 68 degrees which did affect our sleep. We had the breakfast buffet the next morning and it was good. Nancy was friendly very attentive with our drinks and plates. Note: if you want to go to Coldstone, you currently have to walk outside. We did enjoy the casino, but it is small. The bartenders are great with a good selection of drinks.

We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and that our staff made an impression on you. We are terribly sorry the TV was in the state you found it in. We are in the process of getting them switched out so that the correct size of TV is in the rooms,. It appears the room stayed in has a smaller TV then normal and that they did not tuck the wiring behind neatly. That certainly isn't the way we want our rooms presented. Thank you for bring that to our attention, We will check with our maintenance staff on the heating / cooling. We do have them set at a certain temperature but don't know off hand how high or low they will go. We will look into getting that corrected. Thank you for choosing the Catfish Bend Inn & Spa for your getaway.
