I have to say I was so disappointed in our stay. It was great to see the hotel full and people everywhere. We drove in to meet our daughter for her 28th birthday and room was so tiny. We have stayed many times at this hotel and always had a great room with plenty of space. This time our room was above the Italian restaurant our view a tin roof. We are Gold Members and I expected what we have always had as a standard double room. I called and could not get anyone to answer the phone I was on hold for over 10 min and just used the chat on my bonvoy appt to complain about our room. The message said sorry best they could do it was 12:30 and I know they had rooms Available. Same issue to get towels. Then we needed toliet paper and still couldn’t get anyone to answer. We asked the cleaning lady for tissue and towel she was kind enough to give to us. The electric train was broken Not running at all. Just disappointed overall.

Pros: 1) Epic resort unlike anything you've seen (outside of Gaylord in Nashville) 2) Wonderful bathrooms everywhere in the convention side 3) Great air quality Cons: 1) Parking is too expensive (even Nashville) - it's insane. This is Dallas. Bring down the prices please 2) Loud screaming - please tell the parents to control their little brats. This is not Disneyland. It's a live hotel with people sleeping. 3) The atrium is terrible - the windows face the people and noise. It's not Embassy suites where the bedrooms face the outside. Thus you can hear the screaming children all day if you're in the Gaylord hotel room Not sure if dogs are allowed, BUT NO DOGS should be allowed at this resort. I DO NOT want to step on dog mess at a beautiful resort. DOGS NEED TO STAY HOME. What is the matter with people?

Let me first say that we have absolutely no problem paying top dollar for really nice hotels and resorts, but when food and drink prices are high enough to be considered price gouging, that is when I have a problem! First, the good...this place is nice, clean and beautiful. We booked 3 rooms for our adult kids and their children, our grandkids so we could spend the weekend enjoying the Gaylord water park, which turned out to be nothing like the pics and much smaller and slam packed with people! Crowded was an understatement! Chairs were full with many zip tied and marked reserved, but sat empty all day while noone showed up. Cabanas were booked up at least a day ahead of time. Our main issue and problem was with dining, food and drink prices at both the water park and the resort. We put our name on the list for one resort restaurant and were told it was a 45 minute wait...over 2 hours later, we went out and got pizza. This was after trying to get into the Italian restaurant on site and being told we had too many people (6 adults and 3 kids) and they could not accommodate us. Prices were ridiculous!!! A stack of 3 pancakes for $22??? Really??? Everything was priced so high it could easily be considered gouging! We ended up dining out all weekend, so instead we got to try some amazing restaurants such as Pappacitos and Pappadeaux! A burger for $18...a house salad for $10... I probably could have fed our group of 9 at YO Ranch Steakhouse downtown for what it would have cost to feed half us at this resort! We may be back, but definitely will not have plans to eat at the resort...

Pros: - This hotel is seriously beautiful. There is so much to see and we enjoyed walking around and taking it all in. - There is a lot to do relatively nearby Cons: - SO MANY PEOPLE. SERIOUSLY. EVERYWHERE. We went on a weekend in the summer and it was almost unbearable how crowded it was. - Seemingly not enough staff to handle all these people. Ex: 2 girls assigned to work the coffee shop on a Saturday morning. They did incredible and both deserve raises but get them some help. The line for coffee at both coffee locations was outrageously long. - You feel like just another guest. No special amenities I noticed or special attention given. I'm a gold elite Marriott member. I'm not expecting a lot but it felt like we were just a number. - The car situation in front of the lobby. What an absolute disaster. I expect so much more from a hotel this size. It was an absolute free for all. People parking randomly to go inside and check-in (which involved waiting in another long line). I was so mad we got caught in this absolute cluster of a situation. Avoid this area at all costs. - Not only are you charged a resort fee but even if you choose self parking you are charged another fee for that. No free parking option. Which is laughable considering what they charge for a room. - Room was okay at best. We paid for an upgrade/atrium view. The room was just okay. One thing I didn't appreciate was the black mold growing in the grout in our bathroom. Yuck! Summary: This hotel is fine for a special occasion but be prepared for massive crowds and sub par service for what you would expect paying these resort prices.

We are annual staycationers, every now and then we pop over for a night. On a whim we decided to give Gaylord another try after our child’s request. What was a fun place back in 2016ish, had degraded miserably each year to a slow putter during Covid. The service year on year and food was horrendous. Well, everything has changed! Upon check-in they honored our Titanium Elite status and upgraded us to a gorgeous one bedroom atrium suite. We had used points to stay, so this was an unexpected bonus. The room was fantastic, plenty of space. I doubt I’ll ever stay in the single 2 bed room again. Second, we tried the Italian restaurant. A+, fantastic server, great food, killer cheese board and drinks, beautiful atmosphere. Great addition to the local area. Next, the water park was crowded, so that wasn’t as fun for us, and you have to pay to reserve chairs. Instead we took a table at the dining side area and ordered a lot from the server. I felt better about giving my money to that guy, rather than the hotel, and at least get some food instead. Worked out great. Did all the summer activities. Painting a go-to. A little weird they made us carry the paintings away wet. Didn’t like that. Crowds at the outdoor pool were a bit um rough going. Not my scene. Avoided breakfast buffet as we’ve made that mistake over the years, but attended the lunch buffet which is FANTASTIC. $25 all you can eat Mexican? Sign me up. Wonderful. For breakfast we get hot sandwiches at the marketplace. Occasional DoorDash to limit costs. Staff this time were amazing everywhere. Have to be a little watchful over the bills. Menu items are not billed same amount listed when checks come in either Texas station nor market, everything is off $1-$2 more. Keep an eye on that and point it out. They need to fix that because it’s consistent theft. Got obnoxious. That said, I’m fully prepared for the costs that come with roaming around enjoying Gaylord. I’m happy to say I definitely feel like we got our monies worth. 48 hours of fun and food cost us around $1200. Family of 5 (with room discounted heavily). We’ll be back!
