First visit to The Villages

The location of the hotel is ideal if you want to be in the center of all the action. The village square was always very crowded, difficult to navigate and difficult to find parking. The hotel was just ok. Breakfast was limited primarily to a buffet I would expect to get at a chain hotel. The room was clean and adequate, but housekeeping was lax. Wet, used towels were not picked up out of the bathroom. One day we did not get new clean towels and the 2nd day we did not get facecloths or hand towels. If I visit the Villages again The Waterfront Hotel would not be y first choice

It was an uneventful stay. The bar closed at 10pm so there isn't much today after that at the hotel. The $10 breakfast buffet was ok, we figure we got what we paid for.

Excellent overall

Everything from the room itself to the common areas was squeaky clean at all times. Room and bathroom were spacious and well lit, and included a small refrigerator, microwave and coffeemaker. Staff was very friendly and well informed, and helped me in any way possible. The one negative experience I had was the morning of my departure when a member of the housekeeping staff knocked on my door at 9 AM and told me I needed to check out. I pointed out that the check out time was noon but she did not seem to understand, so I went ahead and pack and left early.

Nice hotel and convenient location

The hotel is conveniently within walking distance of Sumter Landing businesses and activities in The Villages. The rooms are clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. Many rooms have a water view. Wish that the dining room food was a bit better though. There is a charge for the breakfast buffet; it is not complementary. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

just what we needed

We go to the villages a couple of times a year to visit family. We have stayed in several places down there and by far this is the best thing around. Only problem would be the shower in our room. I don't know why we were given a handicap accessible room, but it was difficult to deal with and flooded the entire bathroom everytime it was used. Hotel itself was great.

Nothing to write home about.

The location was very nice close to everything. The housekeeping was sub-par. The first day the room was not made up had to call down and the other two days there were glasses left on the dresser and never replaced with new ones, the decorative bed pillows were never put back in place after beds were made, and the carpet could have used a good cleaning. The front desk personnel were very friendly and the matradee was also.

Great for visiting The Villages

Room was nice. Well decorated. not large. Was there for parents birthday and was good for that. Unusual that the pool entrance was thru the dining room.
