Pros: We loved the grounds of the hotel. The landscaping was impeccable, and the activities--including the indoor and outdoor pools, the path around the lake, the horseshoe pit, and the playground--kept us all busy. It's a great hotel in a convenient location.
Cons: Our only minor critique is about the room. The amenities were not always replenished. For example. we used all the decaf coffee the first morning, and the decaf was never replenished; we had to call the front desk anytime we needed decaf.

We stayed in a suite and it was clean, comfortable and spacious. We have stayed here several times and the staff is always very friendly and helpful. Our kids absolutely love the pool and water slide. We definitely want to stay there again!
Pros: We really enjoy the outdoor spaces, the pool is great and the staff has always been wonderful.
Cons: We were originally given a room that was already occupied, but the staff quickly fixed the mistake and upgraded us to a suite which was great!

Pros: Amenities, security, hospitality
Cons: The beds. We started in one room and woke up in pain. They moved us, very graciously, and the bed was better, but still hard on us. We use Hampton Inn as a standard for bed comfort. We both have medical issues that make it hard to sleep.
