I am used to staying at Marriott Hotels around the world but since this hotel is located so far from any major city I wasn't expecting such a world class hotel. The hotel looks brand new and the grounds are being renovated! The hotel includes a convention center along with a very large pool that seems to have everything for the kids and there is a bar just outside the pool gates for Mom & Dad. The room I had over looked the 14th hotel on the golf course as well as the lake (not going to try and spell the Indian name for the lake). Was not a great looking lake but the golf course looked first class. The rooms are typical high class Marriott. My room had a king bed with a desk, free wifi, a big screen TV (which I never had time to watch). The best feature in the room was the very nice bathroom with a separate shower and tub.
The hotel is about 10 miles from downtown Auburn and besides the bar and the main restaurant, there is not much around the hotel for miles for food. There is a small shop at the hotel that sells snacks and soft drinks. Plan ahead if you want food other than hotel food or plan on a good drive to find other food.
If I am back in the area, I would definitely stay here again. Very nice hotel!
