“Nice, but not worth the price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

We started out in a villa. The sofa was disgusting and then when we opened up the bed, it was ripped in several places and uncomfortable for our daughter who can usually sleep anywhere. Watching TV wasn't our main activity, but the one in the bedroom was so small and far away that we couldn't even see it from the bed. We complained about the room and we were moved to the Inn the next day. That room was much nicer. The pool was nice; I think they must let the resort employees use it when they are not working. The restaurant was good, which is a relief since it was the only place to eat. Overall, it was an OK get-away, but I have absolutely no desire to go back.

There is only 1 restaurant. A door separates one building that serves different food on each side of the wall! No room service. We reserved a Lakeview, but when we arrived they only had "Resort views" which is literally a parking lot view. There are only a few very fuzzy news channels to watch in your room, no movie rentals. The pools are not near the hotel. The only thing this resort has that is nice is the view. I was definitely hoping to find a much nicer resort closer to home, but we will definitely be going back to Horseshoe Bay from now on!

We stumbled upon this place researching vacation resorts in Texas on the internet. That was 3 years ago. We have been back for our summer vacations each year for the last 3 years. Each year we research new places to go visit and always end up returning here. Between the easy access for launching the boat, and the wonderful food at the Chaparral Grille, the cleanliness of the Inn, the friendly employees and wonderful service and all of the other activities offered, the kids and I always have such a wonderful time. It is our plan to continue visiting and maybe even consider buying property at the resort in the future and becoming members.

Room Tip: Lakeview room at the Inn has amazing view!

There was so much to do, but the heat was an obstacle. The tennis courts were scorching, but the pool made up for it! The kids playscape area is great in early morning or right before sun down. Bring BUG SPRAY!! I know, I know, it wild life it's pretty is scenic, but there are all sorts of bugs! (Luckily none in the room) We got a less expensive room facing the parking lot rather than the lake, but really the only times we were in the room we had the AC turned up high and the thick curtains closed so we could sleep! The folks there are all super sweet. The best part for my 3 yo was feeding the fish bu the marina!! Even if you don't have kids this is a sight to see!! I defenatly recommend going with the family, but my next trip will be just me and my hubby, we want to check out the SPA and the JET skis that we didn't get to because of the kiddos this time. Oh yeah and the live music on Saturday night would have been more fun had we been drinking, but ther is still plenty of summer left!!

Premium rates for motel 6 service. Boatng is a joke. Rooms are sad. Place could be great but year after year unprofessional employees, BAD managment and no investment into property. NOT a resort, do yourself a favor and sleep in your car.

Spent a weekend here recently for a business meeting. The people at check in were professional, if not friendly. Building 1 had an unpleasant smell in the hallways, the other buildings did not. Rooms were nice, quiet, well appointed, with a very comfortable bed. The AC was very loud but cooled well. Be sure to check the plugs before you try to charge your cell phone; mine didn't charge overnight because the plug wasn't working. Be sure to ask for a room with a lake view, it was great. Nice to sit on the patio at night looking at the lake. The food at the restaurant was ok, but again, not great. The staff was friendly. They have a nice gym with a wide variety of equipment. My wife got a massage at the spa and she said it was great. The facial was just ok. I didn't play golf this trip but the course looked nice. The conference center was adequate and worked fine for our meeting.
This is a decent place for a quick getaway, only a short drive from DFW (about 1.5 hr drive). Overall, our stay was better than average but not quite very good. Say three and a half stars.
