The rooms are great and the Hot Tub is amazing. The restaurant is VERY over priced and not very good of food. The staff is all very friendly and helpful. The room smelled funny but appeared very clean.

Request to have two broken vertical Blinds replaced was mentioned by stopping by the desk once. The other time was by a desk phone call. I had to do a temporary fix myself. The order to repair never happened. The room spa outside is visible by people walking near spa wood slates. Only a criss cross wood pattern and able...

Great service all around, a little over priced as most of these places are, but the extra costs of room things such as flower petals was ridiculous, and it was a little loud next to the highway until about 11.

Sycamore Springs offers a unique experience. The room was comfortable, well equipped, fairly quiet. Staff was friendly. I do think it is overpriced. We had regular glasses instead of wine glasses, we had ordered a cheese plate that was abysmal for the price, no knife to cut the cheese. Very poor quality coffee and non daily creamer....for $300 plus? The...

This was our second trip to the resort. We took my mother to the mineral springs. It was an excellent relaxing trip. We stayed in Eloquene, a two bedroom suite with a kitchenette. The only thing I would add is better kitchen facilities because we have dietary restrictions. If you want peace and total relaxation then this is the place.

We stayed at the Guest House which was a 2 story, 3 bedroom house that was all the way at the end of the resort. It had 2 outdoor hot tubs and since the unit was all the way at the end it almost had full privacy. I would've gave 5 stars but gave 4 because the unit was very...

The room was average at best. It was in much needed repair. There were slats missing from the blinds and a large crack in the bathroom mirror. The patio was nice with the hot tub. The people above me were loud pretty much all night and I tried to call the front desk around 3am and nobody was answering. Definitely...

I've stayed here annually for the past 10 years and aside from a few issues here and there it's been a pleasant stay each time. This past weekend I stayed for one night, I was one of two couples and we had two queen suites in the Mythical building (I was in Legendary, the other couple was in Fanciful). First,...

I was in town for work and after long, cold days, it was so wonderful to go back “home” to a huge room and a mineral spring hot tub in my own room! Also, it’s very quiet there so that’s nice when trying to sneak in a nap. I don’t know what those pillows and bedding are made of, but...
