It's a little pricey considering the options available nearby but it offers a nice bar and restaurant plus other amenities like a nice pool and...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 13 December 2016

This hotel is an absolute gem. I felt that from the moment we stepped in, every single employee went out of their way to make our experience special, from the check-in cookie to the room service. The room that I stayed in is a very good size and had a very generous balcony with a nice view of the golf...

the staff was amazing and super helpful! the campus of the hotel was beautiful and secluded enough to be relaxing yet close enough to shopping centers and restaurants to be convenient. plus they give you free cookies.

This was a great hidden jem that we found near some friends and family of ours. We were extremely happy with our stay here and the pool was great for the family. The hotel is on a former golf course. It has larger open areas that are beautiful.

The rooms were very spacious and clean and the bathroom was very nicely decorated, loved the HUGE walk in shower, the only thing bad us the complex is huge and if toy can't find a parking spot close to your room, you have a good hike back to the room after you park your vehicle, but everything else was EXCELLENT.

“Can stay in main building or surrounding buildings - restaurant is in a separate building. Hilton Honors get free WiFi. Very quiet.”
