Ok, so this is my quandry: Is it a fun place to bring the kids and family reunion, etc. and enjoy the pool, the lake, etc.? Yes, it certainly is. However, the word "resort" is definately applicable here, except for the pool! The beds were comfortable, clean linens and towels. That's about it......But for a three night stay, with a view of only a parking lot full of boats, trailers, and trucks, i won't be back.

32" tube t.v. with poor reception makes for annoying late night entertainment option. Excrutiatingly slow food/drink service at the restaurant. Very old and dirty green carpet everywhere! no floor padding whatsoever and a very thin grade of carpet. Being dark green one couldn't tell if it was clean or not. A/C unit in-room was very loud, and with humid, warm weather, you either turn it on high and freeze out, or you turn it on low and it comes off and on ALL NIGHT LONG! Hollow Panel doors would hardly even close, including the front door! (be carfeul with your belongings). The shower had two temperature settings......scalding or cold. no in-between at all. There were many more annoying things, like paint splatter on the walls, carpet, door frames, etc. yellow paint that was awful to look at; neighbors who were smoking the "Mary J" in their room, disgusting smells eminating through the entire corridor until we called security; no towles at the pool; no parking space because the boat trailers took most of them; and lastly...........

I only saw a total of one Adult worker, the entire time we visited! Very nice kids working here, but no one to take charge it seemed. Food was pretty good (chicken salad sand was awesome) but again, the service was so slow that it took away from the experience totally, and was very expensive.

The overall experience was fine, but I would have much preferred staying in a Holiday Inn or similar limited service hotel than this rather dumpy hotel. The bounce house was a hit with the kids, and the service was always with a smile, but to add $15 per day for a resort fee, was frankly an insult.

Room Tip: Demand an upgraded room. If they don't have one, don't stay.

My husband and I purchased a one night stay (Thank God!!) for $99.00 through Groupon and I must say that I have had far better experiences staying at places like Holiday Inn Express, Comfort Inn, and EVEN Motel 6!
Our room had black mold growing on the bathroom ceiling, there were spider webs hanging from the ceiling to the top of the curtain, and the tv remote didn't work.
The morning breakfast buffet was a total disaster. Apparently the Manager didn't plan accordingly for a major holiday turn-out so the staff in the dining hall were completely overwhelmed and unable to serve customers efficiently. We waited 20 minutes and reminded waiters passing by,that we hadn't recieved our coffee and juice. I finally got up and found a pitcher with ice water and served myself for I could finish my breakfast!
We will not be returning here, nor will we recommend this place to anyone we know.

We paid $179.00 a night for a room with a lakeview at a resort that looked pretty nice on the Internet. It is amazing how deceiving pictures can be!

We arrived for our long Memorial Day weekend on Thursday night, 5/23. We were not welcomed by the staff. There was a blonde haired male at the desk by himself who seemed put out to have to help us. First strike for this, "resort" and only the first of many when it came to their unfriendly staff.

When we stepped off the elevator onto the 4th floor, there was no Air Conditioning, the floors were dirty, and the smell was musty, cracks in the sheetrock, etc. We arrived at our room, #422 and thought this had to be a joke for what we were paying. The smell was so musty, the furnishings so dated, the paint job looked sloppily done with paint all on the ceiling. The carpet had no padding whatsoever and reminded us of outdoor pet carpeting. Perhaps that explained the smell. The bathroom had cracks in the tile, rust stains from past plumbing in the floor, and was in need of a good scrubbing. I will not rip the room any further but have to mention a reddish colored pleather lazyboy, circa early 1990's that we refused to sit on (we used it as a suitcase perch) and a matching era television. When we finally did get to see our view out the window the next morning, we were impressed. One positive for the, "resort".

I can't give a review on the restaurants there because we thought if the accommodations were so sub-par, just imagine the cleanliness of the kitchens!

We did walk by the pool to get pool towels for the lake (which were just thin bathroom towels, some just wash clothes). We noticed the utility closet was wide open and no surprise, it was a jumbled mess with chemicals and old trash strewn around. Again, these details make you wonder what the cleanliness of their restaurants are like!

We ended up leaving a day early, partially due to weather and partially due to our accommodations. No surprise, the manager would not give us our last night's room fee back.

The one positive of our trip was being so close to Highport Marina so we could have easy access to our boat. That place was run very well and the Island Grill Restaurant was wonderful! We went there 2 nights in a row and really enjoyed ourselves!

Moral of the story, we know good accommodations near Texoma are hard to come by, but we will never come back to Tanglewood unless it is taken over by new management and renovated.

We stayed in villa 3 and had a good time as always when we go. The food was okay. They took out the hot tub that was very upsetting. Our room was ok the maid service was spectacular my son dropped and broke a glass the lady happened to be in the hall and cleaned it right up. We rented a boat for a good price and they printed directions at the front desk.

The whole hotel feels damp and humid. Our room looked and felt like a Motel 8 room. Hampton Inn's, Holiday Inn's, etc, rooms are nicer! You had to hold down the handle to flush the toilet in our room. The bathroom door didn't shut. Found a spider on our pillow. Not sure how recently they painted the rooms, but horrible paint job. They have a game room, but half the things in there didn't work. For the money we paid ($119/night), it definitely was not worth it. We could've stayed at a hotel and not a "resort" and had a nicer overall experience. The only pleasant thing was that the front desk employees were very friendly.
