I say this hoping I don't offend Motel 6. This hotel was in desperate need of a makeover, and there was no sound proofing in the walls at all. It is a great hotel if you are 20 something looking for a Vegas style cheap hotel that you can stay out really late partying and then have some place to crash. If you are a family, this is not a very good hotel. The hydraulic door closers are set to slam and they do not enforce any type of noise ordinance as far as I could tell. I finally got to sleep about 2am once everyone decided the party was over and stopped yelling in the hall and slamming their doors.

I was disappointed because this is the perfect distance from my house for a quick weekend getaway and I was really hoping we had found a good place for that. As others have said, the staff is great, it is the same type friendly staff that I have encountered at other resorts. The prices on everything other than the rooms is really good too.

I cannot give them more than 2 stars simply because while all of the amenities are really good, it doesnt make much difference if you cant get a good nights sleep so that you are able to enjoy them.

Service and general experience of Tanglewood resort were positive. Service at the front desk and in the dining areas were good and we were treated well at the golf course. To be fair, our children 3 & 8, had a nice time.... That being said, the building itself is falling apart. The rooms are dark and dingy. There are areas of the hotel were you actually feel like you have time warped into the 60s or 70s. The pools were poorly maintained...plaster (bottom of pool) was new but the tile and stones around the pool were falling off and the water was so murky you couldn't see the bottom of the pool. Also, there is a tower to get an incredible vantage point of the lake but that's only if you can endure the frightening elevator ride, shakes all the way up and down and it looks like people have tried to climb through the ceiling to escape up the elevator shaft. Tanglewood has lots of potential...a couple million dollars in renos and they will be on there way.... We would love to go back but we won't be doing so until their website site says "Newly remodeled rooms and pools!" Heading back to the Cliffs at Possum Kingdom for now...

Room Tip: Ask if they have any newly remodeled rooms :)

The pools were the main attraction for our young kids and there were a blast! We had a wonderful time there and the staff was very helpful. We also ate at Barnacles and the Commodore resaurant. Baracles was as expected- a poolside bar and grill with the usual. The Commodore restaurant exceeded our expectations- a complete homerun for a memorable steak dinner. We had hoped for all the ladies in our group to get a pedicure. However, the prices were high so we went into Denison and all had one there. Our family enjoyed the entire trip. We spent the majority of time with the kids at the pools. It was perfect!

Room Tip: We got the cheapest rooms available and they were completely adequate. We hardly spent any time in...

Family reunion at Tanglewood Resort - The staff makes this place. The pool area is nice and clean and the service there is good. The lower pool is tough to get into because of the distance from the side to the water and ladder. No steps going into this one. The upper one has stairs going in. There are no accessible pools for anyone with even a minor problem with steps.

The building itself is in disrepair. The entire electrical panel was falling out of both elevators. The tubs in all our rooms didn't drain and the water pressure is a joke. The tubs were slanted to the side so you had to keep moving. There were ants all over our window sill. The elevator never really 'matched up' with the floor so there was a definite walking hazard.

The food was really good...and not ridiculously priced. The facility is very attractive....just needs some TLC....lots of it.

We enjoyed our stay. The view from the tower is beautiful. There were many activity options here too.

Our stay at Tanglewood was great. Very close to the Islands which are the destination of most recreational boaters on Texoma. Great Food/Bar, close to Highport Marina, Pools and Hot tubs are clean and well maintained. Weekends are 40 dollars higher per night than week days.

Room Tip: Get a lake view room. They are all clean and great, but enjoy the view while in your room.

We thoroughly enjoyed our master suite at Tanglewood Resort! The prime rib and crab stuffed steak dinners were exquisite and the service was always friendly and competent. My husband enjoyed golfing and I appreciated the on-site massage center. The fitness room was well equipped with treadmills and every weight-lifting machine you could think of. I enjoyed the unique Egyptian artwork in the hallways, and exploring the neighboring towns' antique and artisan shops was lots of fun. Was a relaxing week.

I was there for a meeting a few weeks ago and loved the place! We had great food for the whole stay! The manager Bryan I think his name was very helpful and of great service. The meeting went well we had lots of food and drinks and the a/v guy josh was awesome with helping us with everything we needed. We went fishing with a guide and caught our limit of fish. Had a wonderful time playing golf and out at the lake. Overall the service was great the food was awesome and the the staff was amazing! I've all ready book a week for my family!
