Everything was fabulous….except the heat registers-they were extremely loud, sounded like a plane starting up for take off. So loud it would wake you up multiple times and I am not a light sleeper. Family joke is I sleep through everything but not this! I did let the front desk know at check out.

We arrived for our wedding anniversary. At check in we were told they were not sure they had a room even through we presented our booking confirmation. The resort explained they may have “overbooked.” So with no apology or compensation- we were moved to the golf course in room at was 42 degrees F upon arrival, had run down furniture that looked like it belonged a garage sale - worn, stained, dirty and the carpet inside smelled like smoke. There was no comforter on the bed(s) and only light sheets and we had snow outside… the room was basically a living room with a plugged sink that wouldn’t drain, microwave that wouldn’t turn on, and a mini refrigerator with stickers on it. There was a long hallway that was really dark. And a bathroom with a shower that looked like something from a locker room, yellowing white stained tile. The toilet flushed but the bathroom vanity didn’t even have doors on the door hinges - it was all bare and open and the title was coming off the side of the tub, decor on the walls was literally screwed in and the screws stuck out of the wall… it was the biggest waste of money and a weekend ever. Granted, no one was probably supposed to even BE in these seasonal golf rentals in the winter and we paid FULL PRICE for this without being told what was even happening to us or that we were being sent out into the middle of no where in this really gross and nasty old space that clearly was not cleaned, maintained, nor kept up at all for the same FULL PRICE.
