The beds were very comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

We got an amazing upgrade free of charge since they were not very booked up. We loved having the extra space of the living room and the wrap around balcony!

Very nice resort atmosphere near Auburn University. Great stay for family.

This is a fabulous place to get away and recharge. We just wish we had planned to stay longer than 1 night. Only 2 details that need to be addressed but nothing to prevent us from returning. The pool is amazing. The only suggestion I have is it is not the best for parents trying to watch children due to the rock features apart of the landscape. There needs to be a life guard for the amount of children & noise(waterfall/music/kid’s laughter). It is impossible to relax and enjoy completely. Not enough chairs to be near the pool & guests. I am not suggesting a babysitter, just a little extra safety. My child is an excellent swimmer, but the slide was not being properly used or monitored. There is only one kitchen providing the entire hotel food service, despite several different locations/menus placed around to order(it is quite deceiving). We had an amazing attendant/mgr who took the time to tell us what the time frame was & explain why the wait was so long. This is amazing hotel, I only suggest because I want to see them continue to flourish.

Absolutely amazing resort, very nice pools with lots of lounge chairs and outdoor bar and restaurant. The grounds were beautifully manicured and the entire property was well maintained. Tennis, golf, billiards, corn hole, basketball, bicycle rentals...lots to do. We enjoyed the live music by the pool. The inside restaurant.... 20 minutes to even have a waiter walk by. Wait staff seemed young and inexperienced but very polite and apologetic. The food was average. My thoughts are the restaurant is very understaffed for it to be summer. One negative note....the worst coffee I have ever had. Our room was very nice and spacious with a beautiful large bathroom. Other reviews said it was noisy...not for us. It was very quiet and peaceful. Definitely will stay again and refer this property to others. If not for the issues with the restaurant I would give it a 5 star rating so don't pass on this hidden gem!!!

Perfect!! Everything in the room/hotel reflects that you are paying for a top of the line experience, which is what you get here.

We loved the hotel and excellent staff and amenities.

If you are playing the golf course, or want to get away, this is a great location. If not, it is in the middle of no where. It is in a beautiful setting. Room was a little "tired" but bed comfortable. Pillows smelled a bit stuffy and walls had some scuffs and stains on them. Only food service was at the outside bar and it was a limited menu. But overall, a nice place to stay.

My whole family enjoyed our stay there . Very nice place !!!

We booked this hotel for 2 reasons - it was rated high and they were running a sports weekend special. Well, it was very out of the way of the sporting event we went to and there was hardly anyone there and we felt like we were in a haunted hotel - even if it was a nice hotel. It was a bummer.

Just wasn't worth the money-Many other motels(and that's all it really was) in the area just as nice and a lot less.
