Bring your own pillows. The bed is horrible, and the pillows are even worse. We both had trouble sleeping and woke up in so much pain! Before our second night there, we had to go buy new pillows! Which sucked. The room is nice though. If the bed and pillows were better quality, it would completely change this review.

We are concerned that you found the beds uncomfortable. We replace the beds regularly and only by top-rated ones. I'm looking into this further. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts.

Nice property and rooms. Very quiet, nice grounds. Great spa. The only disappointment was our hot tub on the private patio was a Jacuzzi instead of a mineral spring as indicated on the website. The onsite restaurant was excellent for dinner. I would suggest making reservations.

My husband and I just got home from a two night stay at the resort. We stayed in a queen spa guest room in the adventure building. We really enjoyed the hot tub on our patio, but that was the only thing we enjoyed. When we arrived we were told several different ways that the resort is a quiet place...

We had a nice 3 nights staying in their cottage suite. This suite inside is lovely. While the suite is the most remote one they have it is rather close to the road, which is not ideal. The area surrounding this suite could be be better, it almost seems like its in the behind the scenes area of the resort...

We don't live too far away and kept getting told how amazing this place was. We had an amazing room! So clean! The parking lot was completely full when we got there so there was no where to park but everything else was very nice. The light in the living room part of our room was majorly flickering and our...

This is my second stay at Sycamore and while I've chosen to stay in your cheapest rooms, I'm always a bit disappointed that they are so out of date. Also, we were disappointed because there was hair in the bathtub and on the bathroom floor.

Paid almost $500 a night for a king suite for a quite respite and we could hear the neighbors through the paper thin walls. Did not get a good night restful sleep - hearing them make love and snore. Not worth the money. I am very surprised as these buildings are fairly new, and should have had better sound proofing.

We decided to visit Sycamore mineral springs resort because we loved coming here many years ago. The ambiance is so very relaxing. The rooms are gorgeous. I had the best Deep tissue massage I've had in years. I love soaking in the hot tub that comes wit the room. And the staff are all very solicitous and friendly.

We chose Sycamore Springs for yearly trip. We had king suite. The room was lovely. The cart drivers were very kind to my disabled friend. The bar and food was tasty. The grounds were very beautiful and restful.

We would return. Attentive staff and restaurant had fancy menu. The only downside was our particular building was in bad need of an update. Although it was the closest to all attractions and the lobby, it had old tile surfaces and amenities. We observed several newer buildings on the property that were probably up to snuff. Enjoyed free yoga and...
