Weekend getaway

Everything was clean and the staff was really nice. It seemed that they were understaffed at the pool snack shop and since it was a holiday weekend they probably should have had an extra person working there. Overall everything was great and they were very accommodating.

Good for Everyone

The hotel is well run and clean. It is conveniently located, not too far from the Horse Park and easily accessible to/from the highway. It was nice to have the golf clubs stored at the proshop just like a country club. The only negative is that there is a charge for internet access - not acceptable in this day and age.

Fantastic family getaway

We had the best room which included a bar and full suite. The room service was perfect and the food was delicious. We enjoyed the extras like the spa and golf course! Thanks for a wonderful time. Monique James.

girls weekend/wedding dress shopping

They did not have a double room for us, so we had to sleep 3 in a king bed and 1 on a rollaway, + the crib. Made for a very crowded room and the bathroom was very small. However, the complex was very nice, personnel where very nice, pool was warm, hot tub large--no complaints there.
