Pros: All of the above.
Cons: The hall carpeting could be much better...newer perhaps.
Location: Lots to do and lots to see.
Everything was great. I would always recommend a room overlooking the lake.

Quick trip to The Villages

Posted Nov 10, 2014
Pros: Clean, fresh, even smells good!
Cons: The hallways are too chilly at times.
Location: Look up The Villages. There is too much to talk about in this short survey.
We are planning on moving to the Villages as soon as I can sell my practice. We have been to The Villages many times, so many times, in fact, that the powers to be won't let us stay in one of their rental villas...The Waterfront Hotel is truly a very nice hotel, with all of the ammenities one would expect!

All good!

Posted Nov 2, 2014
Pros: Location on the lake was lovely.
Cons: Dining room service a bit scattered. But the food was good.
Location: Golf,golf golf.
We had a lovely time at the Waterfront Inn. It is a great way to become familiar with Lake Sumpter Landing and get right into the Villages vibe.

A Visit to The Villages

Posted Oct 30, 2014 on Hotels.com
Well, the hotel is not as nice as when new a few years ago but still quite good with a lovely location on the lake and near Market Square. The lobby is a little strange for a hotel with check-in being a couple of desks. There's not much of a service orientation at the Waterfront; but that works OK. The breakfast buffet was inexpensive at $10 but poor in quality.

Better than average hotel in a great location. Recommend a room with lakefront view on upper two floors to avoid lobby noise! Close to all of Sumter lake business, shopping and entertainment.

Not for late night people

Posted Oct 22, 2014 on Hotels.com
The hotel was wonderful; however, if you enjoy the night life you would not like to stay here. Everything in the area of the hotel closes at 9 p.m. Other than that it was a wonderful hotel.
