We had an event to attend (Nov 4->6) and really had not other choice. Being from Canada and not knowing the area we listened to those who suggested the place. In a nut shell this is the worst t hotel I have ever stayed in. The rooms are dirty and very old, furniture looks like it was picked up at... More

The only reason I gave an average rating was the staff, they were very friendly & helpful. Improvements are definitely needed. A lot of the carpeting is very dirty & threadbare, the rooms have no refrigerators or microwave ovens. The TV's are not flat screen or HD. One of the buildings has a rotting roof & the railings for the... More

This hotel was very old with good decor but needed some updating. The walls were chipping, the lights were outdated , and the pool with was greenish and the hot tub smelled disgusting. The elevator made an awful noise when stopping. Great food and a awesome dance floor and banquet center. But a great deal for a night!

The rooms were in bad shape. Rusted sink, 90% of wallpaper was peeling at the edges, iron burn on the carpet. three sets of picture holes above each bed, pictures were crooked, door did not close properly and we have no idea how old the bed was. Band in the bar and the wedding keep the walls thumping all night.... More

We stay once a year for annual golf trip with family! Hotel has a lot of potential, but needs updating badly! My husband is disabled, and just as we arrived and unpacked, found out elevator was out of order! No one to fix it all weekend! Ridiculous with no backup ramp or extra elevator! Had to physically carry him outdoors... More

Golf was enjoyable, hotel was adequate/dated, but that is not the basis for this overall review. To say this was the worst dining experience I have ever had, is a possible understatement! What makes it unique, is that I never did eat. We had a group of 16 that had completed golf and looked to njoy a meal of simple... More

We booked a room here for a bachelorette party. Granted this place was just a place to sleep off the booze from the night before. The rooms were very dated and even though it was non smoking it still smelled like smoke. we had a ground floor way in the back of the resort by the golf range. which was... More

This is a huge facility. Once we found our way around and figured out how to get our massive amount of stuff to our room it was nice. I can see where this was quite the place in it's day. Good sized king room. Vanity outside the bath. Crown molding. Golf course. Fine dining room. Continental breakfast. Elevator.

This hotel is very outdated. Originally booked there because we were traveling for a bowling tournament and needed a rollaway. They guaranteed a rollaway upon booking room. When I checked in not only did they not have the rollaway they had me for one of the two rooms I have reserved. Vince however did correct these issues and discounted the... More

The hotel staff was great and the dining was ok, not the best menu but the food was ok. The morning brunch was really good. The Bar was horrible, we didn't get the right drinks, we asked for the manager and whether it was really the manager or not, she was rude and acted like she was over worked. Will... More
