First Fairway by EVRentals
Ranked #4 of 6 Hotels in Montgomery
Reviewed 21 August 2014

Reviews were 50/50 but we ran out of options & booked it for our 4th of July stay. I would not call this a resort but was very happy & will return every 4th. This is more like a basic apartment complex that sits on the golf course. Most units r occupied by permanent families. The pictures r of a 1 bedroom unit. The pool on property is small but doable. They also have a separate covered hot tub. 1 day during the week they have free donuts/coffee & Thursday evenings free wine/cheese (no sales pitch) just a way 2 socialize with other guest. They also provide free movie rentals. They have no activities for children so u r basically on your own. This was not a problem 4 us bcs the Walden Yacht club made up 4 any outdoor activity. The pool @ the Yacht club was big & has an amazing view of Lake Conroe.The food was also reasonable & delicious. If you enjoy fireworks, this is the place 2 be 4 the 4th of July. U get 2 enjoy all the firework shows while inside the club & not crowded @ all. We had 2 adults/3 children. The 1 bedroom was very small but we survived. Sofa bed like any other was very uncomfortable so went 2 Kohls 2 buy air mattress. 2 TV's, w/d & wifi were a bonus bcs most places only provide TV's. The 2 bedroom has 3 TV's & much bigger. The staff is very friendly & was shocked that they had daily door trash p/u. Not even big resorts offer this. 4 all the golf lovers. This pace literally sits on the golf course. The Yacht club is about a mile away as well as the lake. The pictures u see r exactly what u get. Our room was clean & the bed was the most comfortable bed we have ever slept on. The mattress itself was a good 20" inches thick if not more. They have about 5 other so called resorts but really apartment complex that r all within 5 miles or less from this 1, but this is the only 1 that includes the Walden Yacht club access 4 free with your stay. If u own or need 2 rent a boat check out Nauti-Dayz Boat Rental. They r the cheapest & your rental includes fuel. Check website 4 coupons. Walmart is also about 5 miles away. The complex might recommend a pizza buffet place. Don't waste your time. This is not even a buffet plus they advertise 1 price on line & charge u more in person. When u bring it 2 their attention they completely disregard what u say & still charge the higher fee. The buffet only has 4-5 pizzas @ a time. The unlimited pasta is by order & served in a gravy cup. u also only have the option 2 get marinara or butter sauce. So skip the place & go 2 other food places in the direction of the lake or eat @ the Yacht club or golf course. The pictures we saw under RCI website were exactly as what we received & saw. They also told us they were not on the lake but on the golf course. No big deal bcs lake access is @ the Yacht Club a mile away.

Room Tip: If you have 3 or more people get the 2 bedroom bcs it is way bigger than the 1 bedroom. Setting up o...

Stayed here for a week. It is a really, really basic place.
We were in unit 141.

The Great:
-The location and the amenities that you have access to.... The Yacht Club, Pools at the Yacht Club, Gym and Tennis Center. The Yacht Club has a great happy hour from 5-7 on Wednesday and Friday, free food and reasonable drinks.
-The people that live there. The tennis community there is by far the nicest group of people we have ever met.

The Good:
-Walking distance to the Cafe on the Green and Big Bertha's Bar and Grill
-Washer and Dryer in the unit.
-Good Hot Tub
-Pool
-Internet Access

The Bad:
-Not a very nice place. Very basic 1 bedroom.
-Only had one plastic chair on the patio. We asked for another one, but never got it.
-The unit could have had a few little things that would have made this all better. For example... They had dish soap in a small plastic drink bottle with a hole punched in the cap. No place mats for the table. Maybe an air freshener in the unit.
-A note on the internet access. The document in the unit had the wrong password for ours. The got me the correct on pretty quickly though.
-No screens on the windows or sliding doors.

The Ugly:
-The bed was worn out. It had a low spot in the middle.
-Unit was not very clean. There was mold in the ceiling over the shower.
-Noisy. We were in a first floor unit. The person upstairs was not very noisy, but you could hear every step taken. When the AC would come on it would wake us up.

We are not really nutty about the room we stay in. We got great value from the amenities in the local area. If the unit had been really clean with just a few changes my review would have been much higher.

Room Tip: Get a room on the 2nd floor. Make sure you check in while the office is open. You can deal with an...

We stayed there for a week and were pretty disappointed. The pictures on the website make you think that it's right on the lake-- it's not! You have to drive several miles to get to the lake. There's hardly anyone in the office so no help there. The toilets in both bathrooms were constantly stopping up and overflowed once. We called the office to get help and they said that maintenance and housekeeping don't work on Tuesdays-- what?? I never heard if a place that didn't have maintenance or housekeeping. They said they would send someone over the next day to mop the floor-- they never showed up! Very dissapointing--we won't stay there again.
