I stayed here two nights for business. I made my reservations early and there was no shortage of rooms. I had stayed in the main building before which was not bad. I was put in the basement of an outlying building. The room smelled like an old basement. While others had lake views, I didn't even have a full window... More

While this hotel is on a lake, it is tired and run down and not that clean. I had a room that overlooked a sliver of water, but it did not compensate for the state of the hotel. I also dined at one of the restaurants and it took over an hours to receive my dinner. Not a great experience.

We were back for a business meeting on Thursday and Friday. We got a very good rate. The main lobby and hotel looks very nice and updated. Our room was clean but the bathroom looked dated.

We normally would not choose a large resort, but it was recommended by a friend. Grounds are nice, rooms large with all sorts of choices depending on price you are willing to pay. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. I am sure this would be a great place for a family vacation. Lots of restaurants and activities on site.

Stayed in two different rooms because of having to ad a night. Both rooms were clean. Second room was in renovated building. Very nice only problem if you ran A/C to long you could smell musty smell. Different parts of hotel including restaurants smelled musty. That is the only reason I can't give 5 stars.
