We visit 2 to 3 times a year,the new rooms are great the Lobby was very impressive,the only complaint is the toilet paper rolls are placed on the wall behind the toilet,made it awkward to reach behind you..The staff was kind as always. Can't wait till summer...Thanks Sue for the great room.

Tan-Tar-A Resort check in was simple and quick. The guest service gentleman went above and beyond to accommodate our needs. He was genuine and made adjustments to our room location without even being asked. He was attentive as I was discussing the room issue and he fixed it without prompting. What amazing guest services! We were put in an amazing... More

First off I apologize for no pictures... I really kept meaning to take pictures but was too busy enjoying my time there. This place is more than 50 years old and I was expecting very old place after hearing my parents tell us this is where they took their honeymoon 35 years ago. It has been updated very nicely. NOW...

Room 184 is located in the main building. It had a very comfortable king bed that was low enough for a wheelchair transfer. The room was very open and spacious with an accessible ground level patio. Nice view of the lake. The bathroom was divided into the roll-in shower/toilet area and a separate sink/mirror area. The adjustable shower head was... More

This was my first stay at Tan-Tar-A since they have started remodeling. Tan-Tar-A is a sizable resort so it will take some time for them to complete the update. It was in the off season so there was few people staying at the resort. The remodeled rooms were very nice and clean! As far as the rest of the resort... More

Stayed at Tan-Tar-A resort, building A (Windgate Building). Updated rooms, comfortable King-Size beds. Lack of a work desk was a bit confusing; however, it made for a great vacation away from work. The food at Black Bear Lodge was only so-so. It was nice to see light bowling balls at the bowling alley that could be used by adults. My... More

I just returned from an educational conference held at this center. I had read some reviews stating the hotel was in poor repair and that customer service was lacking. This is far from the truth. There were two of us and we stayed in the tower building across from the main building. Our room was great! The room was well... More

We stay here when we have tournaments. Our kids love the hotel because there is so much to keep them occupied. They loved the bowling, pool, arcade and pizza. The adults enjoyed eating at the bears den and the security of letting the kids play in the arcade or bowling while we finished eating. The rooms have been renovated since... More

Just returned from a three day stay for a teachers' conference at Tan-Tar-A and it was a great experience! Front desk help was friendly and efficient despite the big crowds arriving. My room in Building E was very comfortable and well decorated. We had dinner at the Black Bear Restaurant. The food there was basic, but with very good service.... More

We stayed here for a science teacher convention, which was the third year I have been here. The place is definitely making some great improvements. The rooms are really clean and big. Showers are clean. Bed was above average.
