While the front desk agents were friendly this is a property that has seen better days. It’s next to a beautiful lake and has a nice restaurant by the lake and might be better in the summer but, and it’s a big but, the place hasn’t been renovated in what looks like decades. They remind me of a summer camp. The smell of chlorine from the indoor pool pretty much knocked my socks off from the moment I walked in all the way to my room. The interior of the place is old-fashioned wood with very little lighting.The pillows were so old they were more half pillows. The sheets were thin and piled. The breakfast restaurant had a huge breakfast burrito which was good.

We purchased a Groupon for this hotel for a night away when it was cold out. They advertise a "heated" pool. It was so cold in the pool and pool area that my kids only wanted to swim for about 10 minutes. The hot tub was crowded because the pool was so cold. The room wasn't very clean. We were desperate for a night away but this was not worth the money. The only good part of our stay was dinner at the cute tavern close to the hotel.

Please accept our apologies for the temperature at the pool. With the pool area's atrium design, it is sometime difficult to keep the area and the pool very warm; especially with the cold temperatures outside. Glad to hear that you enjoyed the cozy atmosphere of our OxHead Tavern restaurant. Our specialties are homemade using fresh ingredients...you have to try the chicken pot pie. Thank you.

This hotel offers a great pool and indoor court yard as well as 2 restaurants . They have a beautiful lake with beach and is very close to old Sturbridge villiage.
The rooms are very nice but dated. This hotel could use some paint and updating.
