This hotel is an older resort but very well taken care of. The staff were all super friendly and extremely helpful. The pool is not heated but clean. The hot tub stopped heating but the management jumped right on getting it fixed. The breakfast is very good with big waffles in the shape of Texas. A few negatives but I...

The hotel is older and could use some updating but the staff is super friendly and keeps the place clean. We went in February and they have a wonderful community of "winter Texans" living there and the hotel had many activities planned for them.

WiFi access could of been better if it reached all over the hotel, the hot tub was nice but for some reason not as hot as a hot tub usually is. Also the staff was overall nice but some still had some unnecessary remarks. I understand if they want to talk smack, but they should have the courtesy to say...

The hotel is a little dated. Furniture in rough shape and king size bed was very uncomfortable. Pool was not heated. Hot tub was nice. Staff were extremely friendly. Great location. Breakfast was good, however no fruit. Quiet. Lots of dogs staYing for the winter season. Rooms were spacious and clean.

We spent a week at this hotel and really there wasn't much more that we could have asked for from them. Warmer temps in the hot tub, better wifi in the rooms. A couple of chairs for our patio, too. Our room was spacious, large restroom, kitchen area with a table and chairs. Overall nicely appointed. The staff was supportive...

This hotel is very unique and special. It is much better than the 3.5 stars that it got. I was pleasantly surprised how nice this hotel is. Bring some swimming shorts and enjoy your stay. This hotel is close to everything and the front desk is very helpful.
