We enjoyed our short trip to Possum Kingdom!
Check-in: Quick & easy; staff helpful
Room: Spacious, clean, fantastic lake view!
Food: Just ok
We arrived on Saturday afternoon famished and hoping to eat in the restaurant right away. Only the bar was open and we had to choose: eat bar food now --or-- wait another 2 hours. We opted to eat right away. We ordered off the bar menu and asked if we could special order one item. Not a problem, they were happy to accomodate us. There were about 8 noisy golfers who had just come in from their round, which was kind of annoying. But, it was a bar and to be expected. We also ate the breakfast buffet the next day, which was average. They offered scrambled eggs, potatoes, biscuits, fruit, pastries, juice & coffee. Service was a little slow, especially considering there were only 3 tables occupied at the time.
Yes, the A/C unit is annoying and there are limited food choices (we wanted take out dessert at 8:30 that night & called the restaurant, but we were told they were too busy for take-out orders after 7pm). The front desk was kind enough to call around for some other choices, but we settled on a candy bar from the vending machine!
The best part about this hotel is the view and location. We rode our mountain bikes all around The Cliffs resort and housing development, as well as down by the marina. We saw many deer on the property. The golf course looked spectacular, although we did not play during our stay. If you drive over to the PK Trailhead, you will find some very well-maintained hike/bike trails with great maps posted throughout. We hiked to the top and enjoyed the cool breeze and phenomenal views. There were also several deer on the trails.
We had a fun experience, but feel this hotel is a little pricey for what it offers.
