Hotel seemed to be recently updated. We were on the main floor and there was a convention there but we heard little noise from the hall. Our room had 2 king beds, was very spacious and clean. It was on the end, so the balcony was tiny, 2 chairs barely fit on it with almost no room in between them....

Tan-Tar-A is an older resort and they are doing some remodeling but the property still looks very dated and some rooms/areas smell old and musty. Our room was nice, on the 8th floor, seems to have been recently remodeled but I heard that's not the case for the rest of the resort. Also, there were flies EVERYWHERE! Please put up...

We were in the "C" complex, which worked great for us as it was close to both of the swimming pools and the restaurants. We had a non lake view room, but it worked fine as we were not in our room much. The rooms were large and beds comfy. The room did have a musty smell, but I chalked...

Enjoyed our stay. Would love to visit again after remodel is completed. Loved that it wasn't crowded at the time of year we visited. Indoor water park is small, but amused our kids, ages 10, 8, and 3. Outdoor pools and water park were closed. Indoor pool was gorgeous.

We are just finishing our 1 week stay (Monday to Monday). The location is amazing however there are several things that I did not like about our stay. First, when we booked our trip we asked for 2 lake view suites side by side so that we could be close to each other, even calling the day before our arrival...

My husband and I stayed here for a conference and had a good time. They were very strict with us about checking in at 4 p.m. so we had a bit of time to use up at the outlets with our 11 a.m. arrival. When we finally checked in, we were given a room with 2 full size beds in...

Our family stayed for the 4th of July weekend. The staff was great. Check in was quick and easy. We where in building E which has been renovated and was close to all of the amenities.

I booked Tan-Tara for a mid-week getaway on June 24-26. I did not know that 'run of the house' means you get what you get and dont throw a fit. Not really, but it does mean that your room is not assigned until actual check in and if, and that's a big 'IF' you get the resort side consider yourself...

Stayed here three years ago for a conference. After staying at the Lodge of Four seasons last year for our conference, I can tell you that coming back to Tan Ta Ra was a relief, but that's not to say that it doesn't need some serious updating. To be fair they have made some updates, but the property needs a...
