2/5 Poor

Traveled with family
Not worth the Money
They are clearly taking advantage of Covid-19. Only 1 restaurant open. Not a full menu. No restaurants open for breakfast. No room cleaning service. No fresh towels. Even if I was to exchange the used towels. No garbage pick up. I was lead to believe that my room was walking distance to everything. It wasn't! It wasn't even on the main property. It was a good 5 minute drive & minimum half hour walk. The room was quaint. Way too many restrictions on everything. No sauna or steam room open at indoor pool. It happened to rain while I was there. Believe me when I tell you there is NOTHING to do there when it rains. When I checked out I had to strip the sheets from my bed, empty the garbages & throw all towels in the tub or else I would've been charged an additional fee. They clearly have an different meaning for the word Resort then I do. They had 2 weddings going on & I felt like because I wasn't part of the wedding I was a bother to them. All the spa times were booked up. Meanwhile, the nail salon & massage therapists were gone early on the weekends. Perhaps if you have people looking for treatments & willing to spend money you should stay open later? Most things on the property had additional fees too. I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy.

Disliked: Staff & service
The overall experience was good. There appears to be issues with the front dest and staff at the local resort restaurant, specifically, Pinnacle Southern, were not conducive to good customer service. The attitude was not friendly ( not the server) , but the manager on duty. We were not allowed to eat breakfast, arriving one minute before breakfast was supposedly closed. I believe management needs to take a little time in re-training their employees in customer service , and in encouraging a positive environment.

Be more generous with towels!
The Apple Valley villas need updating. No dishwasher. For 2 of us, we received a total of 4 towels for 3 days (2each). This includes what we were to use at the pool. Beds were actually comfortable. Need to switch from keys to care entry for units. The scenery was beautiful. Bicycle route in Spindale on old RR tracks paved over made for a good bike ride. Would come back next year of O knew I was getting units that were updated with reasonable amount of towels and appliances.

Rumbling bad!
The unit we rented at Rumbling bald was not acceptable. The room smelled moldy and the hot water had an awful smell. The unit was not well maintained and had carpet pieces piled in the corner of the entry way. The resort was nice and the restaurant on the lake was very good with super nice views.
