I stayed here twice while looking at property in The Villages. The rooms were spacious, pleasant & very comfortable. I found the beds to be "just right" for a good nights sleep. Because I was worn out after a very long day of driving I ordered room service. Although the service was good I was disappointed in the food. The staff is courteous & helpful & the location can't be beat.

This hotel was great! The service was great and very accommodating. We had a full view of the lake and golf course. We rented a golf cart for the day which allowed us to travel all in the villages. Highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: Top floor, lake front view.

Finky wallpaper in the hallways. Can't beat the location if you are staying in the villages. Walk to happy hour in the town. They don't include breakfast which most of the surrounding hotels do. Very loud room next door but that may have just been bad luck.

5-Star for The Villages. Granted, it's no Ritz-Carlton, but it is as close as you can get for The Villages. POINTS: Cleanliness, Great Location, beautiful facilities, helpful & cheerful staff. The rest of available hotels cannot compare AT ALL....they are chain motel-hotel types (Holiday Inn, Comfort, etc) and bare-bones.....which are okay, but those are quick-stays for ($tight) visiting relatives etc.....but if you want to stay somewhere special.....somewhere you will truly enjoy the facility itself....a notch or two above the others....then the Waterfront Inn is THE ONLY place to stay. Located on Lake Sumter Landing with shops & restaurants at your convenience.....nightly live music at the Landing....you will probably pay $20-30 more per night than the others but you will have a much more overall enjoyable experience making it worth the extra change. If you're staying a week or more? They will negotiate rates.....don't be shy, If you don't ask you won't get it. Don't stay anywhere else. BTW, It's pretty popular so don't expect to get a room at the last minute.....plan ahead and you'll be happy that you did!

Room Tip: Waterfront View....really nice.
