My friends and I used to go out to the Bloomin’ Inn for scrapbook retreats. The first few times we went out it was quite lovely; The location is great, but service has gone down hill. The owners seem to think that special dietary requirements are just picky people who are making a fuss and do less then a half an effort to accommodate them. My mother was told there was no creamer for coffee and was basicaly ignored for asking for milk free meals. Because Menu isn't posted in advance, there is no way to work around this unaccomidation; except to walk in to the dining room findout what you are having and then leave if you are unable to eat it.
For me (no diatery issues) the food was OK, but the menu is stagnant. Each time we were out they served the same meals every time. You must be on their time: don’t be late for meals – you are met with a disapproving stare (that stare doesn’t vanish if you choose to miss a meal completely, you just get it twice as bad the next time you show up).
The last time I was there, our rooms in the house were the basement rooms - done up nice - but LOUD. I wonder when they are prepping breakfast, if they wear tap dancing shoes. They don’t believe in purchasing new beds when the old ones are sprung out and lumpy so beware (and they squeak when you move). Unless you are someone who doesn't need sleep, be sure to demand rooms in the new area (the workshop). Apparently you are wonderful if you go out with a quilting group - rumor has it that the owner thinks that scrapbookers (her largest clientele) are a waste of space.
Maybe if there were a change in management, I would go again.
