I must write after reading the other ratings. The resort closed for an extended period of time for remodeling. My husband and I stayed for one night last week....WHAT A TRANSFORMATION!!
I have stayed several times in the past for conventions (ie. not optional). It was dismal and it smelled foul. That is no longer the case.
The first thing I noticed was that the smell is gone. The entry is amazing. The decor is beautiful. The nasty old pool is gone with a beautiful new one in its place. The spa is stunning. The grounds will be beautiful (they were not done yet because still too cold outside). The place is neat and fun to explore. We can't wait to take our kids and stay for longer.
Our king size room was $130.00. I thought the rate was reasonable. They make their money elsewhere, primarily the casino. I did go into the casino. I have never been to one before and I thought it was OK. People do smoke in the casino but it was well ventilated. Also, the slot games were very complicated. I lost $40 and still don't really understand how the game is played. Then we left.
The stone massage in the spa is a MUST. My husband had the sports massage and said it was the best massage he has ever had.
We will go back!
