The room was freezing cold with no way to control it. The floor in front of the bathrrom door was wet from where the fridge was leaking.

What a beautiful spot. Golf course, water views, nature walks, etc. Wish I had more time this trip to further explore the area.

A wonderful resort like quiet hotel away from the everyday hustle bustle of city life! Definitely recommend!

location is great and the property was very nice. I scored lower on facility and room because the beds were way too soft (softest bed I ever slept on), and my daughter and I both woke up with sore backs. for this reason alone, I would not stay here again but this might not be an issue for others.

Staff service needs much improvement. Second time did not get room serviced. Had to request clean towels. Checkout clerk not friendly at all. Overall service needs a lot of attention. Over the last 5 years of staying there service has really declined

We got married a year ago, but due to extended family problems, could not go far to honeymoon. We wanted a good quality, secluded hotel close to home. The Yellowhammer Inn is not on the main drag, and you must look to find it , but it is worth the effort in its beauty, comfort, and seclusion. We have started an anniversary tradition of returning to the Yellowhammer on our anniversaries. If you need a getaway close to home, try the Yellowhammer Inn.

I think this could have been a nicer trip if I had upgraded. The basics provided me with a small room with the coffee pot in the bathroom. I believe if I had purchased the extras, by visit could have been nicer. My advise is pay a little extra and get a larger room. The pictures are for the better room. The room I had was like an attic room/wifi reception and cell phone reception was bad.

Nothing IS what IT say's IT IS! No so called phone in the bathroom, no jacuzzi, no hbo, no pool (unless you pay $10 per person per day at another location, no tennis, no golf, no relaxation! It is was nothing like IT said! It was a waist of my money and time.

I thought I was going to this wonderful resort, filled with amenities, luxury, and comfort, but NO! First off when it says best kept secret, it's a secret! NO ONE had ever heard of it. We go into a private community, while everyone stairs and wonders why you are there, you drive to the very back, and there is your hotel, which by the pic looks like a little warm inviting cottage type, but its not, and the king size room they show, is nothing like the room I was put in! It also says they have a golf and tennis court, but they do not, the private Golf and tennis club does, which btw they can make you a reservation for that restaurant but no blue jeans, only dress clothes. They say they have a pool, they don't, the yacht club next door does, and it's $10 a day per person. They say explore our 6 acres, can't really do that either, bc your restricted from certain areas. We also couldn't go out on the balcony, due to construction, or routine touch ups, not sure, but work being done to both the inside and outside. Our room was only serviced one time in the 3 nights we stayed there, although we had put the sign on the door for our room to be serviced every day. BTW I took my 2yo with me, it claims it has amenities for children, there was nothing! Do yourself a favor and spend the extra money, and go to a hotel that actually delivers on what it says! Bc this one DOES NOT by FAR!!
