I didnt expect much

After reading online reviews I had low expectations. I thought all I wanted was a good hot tub and clean pool. I was wrong. The hot tub was out of service. The pool was clean, but too cold for us adults, it wasn't ice cold, there were kids playing in it...just too cold for us. The room was pretty bad. There was rock salt on the carpet, I doubt it was vacuumed. The basket of complimentary bath products on the sink had 2 used, empty shampoo packets in it. I cut my thumb on a sharp staple sticking out of an upholstered chair in the room. The room had a strong odor of chlorine, like a school locker room. The free breakfast was much better than I expected. The location is easy to get to from the expressway. I would not go there again.

3 day get away

Do's : Pool and whirlpool and sauna awesome Lounge had excellent food great beer selection and wonderful staff. Great location just seconds off the expressway and 10 minutes away from Treetops skiing,boarding and tubing! If you book a room it's a little more fun to get one connected inside the atrium! This place use to be an old Holiday Inn Holidome.

One night stay while traveling

An older room for sure, but everything was clean and the beds were very comfortable. Shower head could have had more water pressure but that was the only thing. Breakfast was excellent with lots of variety to choose from. Would stay there again just for the breakfast.

Lacking essentials

One night stay. Mattress was hard and lumpy. Carpet in room and stairways was dirty. No elevator for heavy luggage. No tea bags at continental breakfast. Wallpaper falling off the wall in our room, ceiling in dining area in need of repair. Staff friendly and helpful. Looks as though the owner doesn't care if they get repeat business.

Very accommodating

Upon going through the check-in process, I was given a room on the second floor, without an elevator. I am on crutches, so was hoping not to be on the second floor. They only had a poolside room available and were kind enough to switch me into that room, without incurring a higher charge. THANK YOU!

Needs Something Special to keep going

The room needs work definitely, our TV didn't work, so we had to call the front desk to get it fixed........Every time we went to have a hottub, pool or sauna, it was never turned on, so you had to go back to our room to call the front desk to ask them to turn it on & they never did turn the sauna on. The breakfast not to be desired

getaway to gaylord

When we arrived I made sure they were pet friendly, they told me they were and also told me I had to take pet with me when I left hotel. Not happy about the rudeness of the staff. When we went in our room there was a 13 inch TV when website said big screen in every room. No cable TV. No fridge, or microwave like website stated. I probably will not stay there again
