La Torretta Lake Resort & Spa
Ranked #1 of 6 Hotels in Montgomery
Reviewed September 19, 2012

The hotel is modern and spacious. Great value for the money. Large rooms for a family of four with two big screen TV's!
We had three families that went and had a good time at the pool and walking around and eating at the restuarant. We also brought our boat and enjoyed the lake. There was a dock right at the hotel.

We were very cautious going to the hotel based on some of the polarizing reviews. Overall, the hotel is a fine hotel, with some room for improvement. The hotel itself is clean, rooms are spacious, clean, well decorated. the lobby is modern, the spa (we didn't use it) seems modern and very pretty. Food was good at the restaurants and drinks were good at the Pool bar. The pools are awesome, including a kids pool, lazy river, and two additional pools. Great for families and in our case, we went there without the kids (we are planning to go with our kids next time). The service at the pool side is poor or non-existent. I was ok with that, but some people might not be ok with it. The service at the pool bar was great. Some people complaint about shaded areas in the pool and perhaps they could use more umbrellas and fix some that are broken. Chairs at the pool are clean and fairly new. They probably need more side tables to put drinks. The maybe bad is their parking. Uncovered and not paved. If it would be raining or wet I can see how people would complaint if they get their cars dirty. If you get it at the right price, then it is worth it. We got it at $129 per night plus $20 resort fee and taxes. Came out to $169 a night. At that price, it is worth it and with kids, it is a great deal. Will be back soon.

If you are looking for four or five star service, than this is not the place for you. Service was ok but not the best. But who cares? I bought a $139 Groupon and had a fantastic weekend with my family for under $300. This is a great place for families (like mine) with little kids who want an affordable and close (we live in Houston) place to mix up the routine weekend. The pros: affordable, nice rooms (we had a "Tower Suite") with large showers and bathtub and separate bedroom and living room; entertaining aquatic park for young kids. The cons: the grounds are not well kept (missing outdoor floor tiles, faded paint, unkept flower beds). It seems that there is much more supply of facility convention space than there is demand which made it feel like a ghost town in some areas. I think if this hotel is picked up by a major chain, and with a $20-$40 million facelift, than those who expect 4 star service and facilities may feel that their needs are met. Until than, I would go again if I pick up another deal.

We used a Groupon for a one night stay with breakfast included. We thought our stay was great. We did not visit the dining room for dinner, but the breakfast buffet was great. Our 2 year old really enjoyed the aquatic area. Our only issue was that the pool grill closed at 5 and the kitchen was closed by 4:45. After spending the entire afternoon at the water park, it would have been nice to eat at a normal dinner time without having to go back to the room and change first. We will surely take our little one back, but will plan better for our meal times.

Room Tip: The one bedroom tower suite was very spacious and was great for our family of 3. the bathroom, espe...

My husband (Lee) and I love to take trips all year long and have been going to La Torretta since Labor Day of last year. We went there because of a suggestion from coworkers that had heard about it themselves, but had never gone...so we decided to be the guinea pigs.

The first few visits had really tried our patience and resolve as travelers but the third time took the cake and we contacted management as high as we could go. I'll interject that the reason we continued to go back is because it was not too close but not too far and encompassed everything that we wanted in a weekend getaway and had faith due to the potential. Anyway, after dealing with various levels of management, the resort made amends and we decided to give it a 4th try. We were very pleased and even more pleased after the 5th trip which we just took this past Labor Day weekend.

I have read the reviews and always do my research online and I have to say that I think some of the reviews are way off. Each and every time we have gone, the rooms have been clean and immaculate. Although we have had customer service issues not related to having our order taken, we have never had to ask or even give a nod to get our glasses filled, get seated or order taken at Prime. As far as Mokka Cafe, there isn't a kitchen present when you walk in so don't expect a fresh hot sandwich made to order. We have alternated between breakfast there and breakfast at Prime and have not been disappointed once.

We have hit the gym, tennis courts, racquetball courts and miniature golf every time and have not had any problems.

Room service is also fast and have not had any problems with check in or check out...both very fast.

We always stay in the Premium King Suites with Lake View and will continue to do so until we can figure out how to book a penthouse suite :)

The pool area is also above par. It's the main reason we keep coming back. There is something to appeal to everyone. Yes we may have had a scrape or two because of the concrete but there would be a ton of reviews that were bad if it was too slick. We have had more than one great waiter on more than one occasion...Brian is phenomenal! If people are expecting 40+ year old wait staff at poolside bar then perhaps they are staying at the wrong place.

The one bad thing that has been constant is the parking. We have an above average vehicle and it is kept immaculate. It is also cleaned again before every trip and our black car looks like it has been antiqued with a handful of flour when we leave because its parked in the dirt. On our 4th trip there was an Aston Martin parked in the dirt so don't think they make exceptions. All in all...we love the place. it's perfect for us and we will be going back next month!

** the service is receiving the 4 stars for the parking

We stayed in the lake villas and wow. Clean, nice and plenty to do. We played golf, rented wave runners and visited the spa. I have visited hundreds of spas all over the country and this one is fantastic. Great inventive service offerings and talented polite staff. Pool areas are great for kids. Water slides and a lazy river appeal to all ages. Room service is very good. Have the crab cake. Overall, food in Prime was not great at dinner but all other food was good and we ate most meals at the hotel or room service. Note there are no microwaves or fridges, which can be tough for kiddos so bring an ice chest. They bring bagged ice for free. Definitely give this place a try and upgrade to a lake villa if your budget allows! Super holiday weekend.
