Our family arrived at the Lakeview for a family-oriented conference. Having two rooms reserved, they offered us one of the timeshare Condos for the same price, which we loved.
We were in Condo 18, but I'm assuming they're all mostly the same. Upstairs had 2 bedrooms: Master w/ Queen bed, swivel chair and bathroom w/ jetted tub, 2nd bedroom with 2 twins beds and shower. Both bedrooms have TVs. Downstairs has another 1/2 bath, a full washer/dryer, a full kitchen and a love-seat and sleeper sofa with another TV. Balconies are off of the master and the living area. There was a gas fireplace which wasn't working. Each condo has 1 assigned parking spot.
The hotel itself is pretty spread out. We attended conferences in the seminar rooms on level 2, which is actually downstairs from the main lobby. This was a very busy resort with lots of events happening simultaneously. The staff were all super friendly to our two young children. There is not a ton to do in the immediate vicinity of the hotel. For example, there isn't a single pizza place that will deliver to the resort. The resort bar/restaurant does offer pizza, but it is a bit overpriced and it's not the best quality. If you need supplies or want to shop, it's at least a 15-20 minute drive into Morgantown.
Parking is the biggest issue they have. During the day, golfers take all of the parking spots closest to the hotel entrance, which means hotel guests who are paying to stay there have the longest walks. Later in the day, while the golfers are still on the course, and guests are arriving for other events (weddings, etc.) the lot is at capacity. People park in the lanes of the parking lot, which makes navigating the lot in anything larger than a golf cart quite difficult. We even encountered golfers 'tailgating' from the back of their pick-up trucks in the afternoon. If I were to make a suggestion, it would be for the hotel to issue parking passes to all guests of the hotel and only allow those vehicles to park in the main parking lot. Golfers who are only on site for the golf course should have to park in the lower lot which is directly adjacent to the actual course. I would also suggest having a parking attendant on site during the busiest times to make sure that guests are parking in areas that make it difficult to navigate the already-filled parking lot.
