I am a local author who was in need of a quiet place to meet a book deadline. My original hotel had no availability so I decided to give Horseshoe Bay Resort a shot. When making my reservation I specifically requested a lake view room to avoid any distractions and have a peaceful view, they had no issues as they claimed they had several lake view rooms available. However, upon arrival in my room I found that I was given a basic room full of distractions, packed tennis courts, pool, etc.... They claimed to have switched my room without notifying me because they made a mistake and found no lake view was available. I found this a pretty strange "mistake" for a hotel with a state of the art reservation system to make. In the end, though the hotel was beautiful, I ended up leaving early because I could not concentrate in the room I was given which was the entire reason I decided to spend the night. It was either stare at myself in the mirror while writing or watch the entire hotel enjoy their leisure. It was also very upsetting to find that they still charged me the full price of a lake view room even though they stuck me in what must have been a standard room because there was nothing special about it. I could have gotten the same room with a view down the road at the Hampton for half the price and not have a strange 300 dollar ghost charge leaving me scratching my head. The only reason I chose to pay more was because I liked the fact that I could order room service or eat in the hotel itself to avoid leaving since I was under a time constraint. This is one place I cannot say will end up in the acknowledgement section because after viewing my bank statement I feel pretty scammed.
