The pool was cold , but told me is was heated when I called. Plus no one was following the rules on Covid-19 which they published in writing so it wasn’t unforced by there staff.

It was a nice stay and clean the staff were friendly

Wonderful place - we had a great time! Excellent food!

Wonderful! Wish we could have stAyed a second night!

Well keep and clean. A lot of activities you can do. Staff are very professional

This resort is truly a gem. Starting with the front desk staff, everyone working here was on top of things. The resort has two pools, two hot tubs, several fire pits, free kayaks, paddle boards and boats to rent. The list of things to do here goes on and on. Our room overlooked the pool and beyond that the lake. There are some rooms that face the parking lot and those rooms will save you some money and still giver you access to al the great activities. We were in town for a wedding and in addition to my wife and I, two of my cousins and their spouses also stayed at the Lakehouse Resort. There were several different places at the resort where we could get together and hang out. One night after dinner we sat by the firepit and made s'mores (the hotel gives you a complimentary kit!). The rooms were also updated, very clean and well maintained.

Great for a mini getaway. Comfortable beds. Our room was clean but wasn't as clean as previous stays at the resort.

All areas are Beautiful. Love Decoy Bar and walking all around the Lake

I loved the doing morning Kayak on the lake each day. One hour rental was included in the resort fee. I will stay there in the future.

Hidden gem. We really enjoyed our stay st this lovely San Marcos hotel

Beautiful view must book lake house view. Fast check in friendly staff. Clean room nice beds pillows where a little too soft for me. Got a duffy boat had a lot of fun. Got free smores at check in for the fire pits. Will be back again. Kid friendly place.

My last review cut me off so continuing here. Back to the $5 coffee. Just a regular cup and they charge more than a Starbucks. Just seemed strange given the other pricing. All staff I interacted with were very nice and helpful, but they were definitely understaffed. At the restaurant and the hotel. Many if not all of the room phones were not working for almost all of our 10 days there. This was really only a problem when wanting to order room service or help fixing our tv. We were given a number to text with any problems, but not until the day before we left. Overall we really liked the resort and would go back. I just think they need to work on more staff and catching up to the aesthetic updates. Its beautiful but some little things could be better. They had a bar at the pool-Awesome, but they ran out of mixers a few times and there werent alot of people. And not really worth $14 for an ok frozen drink. My daughters wedding was beautiful. Only a couple issues. Bartenders claimed they were new and when I order a Tito's martini, she asked me "what goes in that". A wedding should have experienced bartenders. They also overcharged for a couple things that were ultimately credited, but only because we caught the mistake and called about it. It was a bit over $1000 overcharge. So significant mistake. they didn't argue and credited immediately but just be sure to always double check yourself. This place is very nice but definitely has a lot more potential!!

This property was very nice. My daughter got married on site and many family members and guests stayed at the hotel. Front desk personnel were very helpful. One I know by name, Emily was very helpful in getting our many reservations sorted out. The rooms were very nice. watch your fingers in the heavy sliding bathroom door! especially kids. I'm not a fan of the glass showers when multiple people are staying in the room but they looked very nice. Resort fee is additional to what is charged by Orbitz. $20 per night. This covers wifi, 1 hour use of a non motorized water activity, such as paddle board, and parking. But every room is charged the same fee even if you don't have a car. And the wifi is terrible. But I expected that, as in my experience, it's never very good in a hotel with so many people using it. The pool and hot tub were a total hit with the kids. Not too crowded and clean. We were disappointed that we could not use the grill, as we were told it can only be used by staff for events. Pool closes at 9 but so does the entire pool area, so you can't hang out with other guests and enjoy being outside. Quiet time is 10 so if you plan to move small gathering inside, must be quiet by 10pm. Even on a weekend night. Decoy restaurant is expensive for dinner. I found costs to not be consistent. Breakfast was reasonable, except for the coffee. Breakfasts ranged from $10-14 for things like pancakes, eggs with bacon potatoes and toast. But coffee was $5.00!

Thank you for staying at Lakehouse. Our pools are heated to between 78-82 degrees, but with how hot it was this past weekend that may have seemed cold! We are doing our best during these times,and hope you come back and see us again when things return to normal.
