This is a pretty nice place for the age of the building, a fairly fresh remodel makes it a bit nicer but be careful on the patio rooms they are a bit musty if you have any allergies they will get rockin quick, they were nice enough to change our room the next night to save the rest of the weekend, the Rates are pretty high for the property but it is kind of made up by having a nice pool & patio area but those areas should be what the Resort Fees cover not the inflated room prices, the patio bar is a nice touch and would be a Huge Success if a 16oz Beer wasn’t $8 and a name brand whiskey drink wasn’t $10 I seen Allot of people that brought their own drinks from their rooms with them understandably so at those prices, almost felt like Ball Game Prices for the food & drinks, if the

After 2 other getaways falling through due to COVID, my husband and I decided to try here for just 1 night to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. What a mistake! Room prices are outrageous (over $300/night) for rooms that I would say are on par with a Motel 6. I paid extra for their most expensive room type, a "lake-side patio room", thinking that we would have a patio with a lake view. Wrong! What we had was a weed-strewn patio shared with the room next-door and a view of another building. In addition, there was a huge stain on the carpet, peeling paint, dog hair all over the sofa, dirt and bugs in the sliding patio door rails and a bathroom that looked like it had been tiled by a drunken blind person. When I called to complain I was told they "do not guarantee a lake view"

I have chosen this hotel because it is per friendly. We stayed two Nights. The first day which we paid an outrageous price (389us) the pool was impossible to visit. There were no chairs to sit. Receptionist recommended us to visit the indoor pool instead. Yes. Hilarious I know. Last they the hotel was empty and we asked if we could stay one more hour to enjoy the pool. The answer was NO. We also tried their breakfast on the first morning. It was so terrible that we decided for the next day to take the car and go somewhere else. Location es not good either. I was expecting better lake views for that price. Yes, bad experience overall.

Room was disgustingly dirty - especially the bathroom. Pool was overcrowded with people not even staying at the hotel. I don't care if the condo pool is closed - not my problem and certainly not for the rates they charge. Bean and Vine staff placed frozen sandwiches directly on the counter. Bar 55 was also crowded with people from outside the hotel. Bartenders were slow and staff placed all food orders on the bar in one spot in front an old couple who was breathing on them. Hotel is grossly mismanaged. Won't be back.

Made reservations for just the pool for Saturday June 27th. When i arrived, they told me i couldn't after after a 45 minute drive. They would not explain at first until i was persistent, then one of the clerks ( who was not pleasant at all) stated that they were over booked. I asked if they could of gave me a curtousy call and recieved no response.
