This is an older property but well maintained. Lori at the front desk was personable, friendly and helpful! We love the pool and hot tub. The property is beautiful and walking distance to Lake Sumter Landing restaurants, shopping and nightly musical entertainment.

Convenient to The Villages. No longer doing daily maid service and the “eco” bar soap was a little like cardboard.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Compared to other hotels, in The Villages, this is one of the best. I gave 4 not 5 stars because the public areas of the property are quite dated including the pool area. Also, nearby restaurants are mediocre (par for The Villages). However rooms are renovated and clean including a hard surface floor which seems much better than carpet. Outlets in tables didn’t seem to work well for basic charging (eg iPhone)
