Positive Reviews

Bar Offers Tropical Vibe

Even though you're in the Midwest, you may feel like you've stepped foot in a tropical location at this hotel's poolside tiki bar. The atmosphere is festive, with music playing and tropical drinks all around, mixed by the excellent bartender. This bar is perfect for Ohio State fans as it's Buckeye-themed. It's a highlight for many guests.

Quiet Resort Location

Off the beaten path, this hotel is in a good location for getting to the downtown area which is just two blocks away. This hotel is away from town so you are in a quiet location, yet close enough to enjoy the bars, restaurants, and scenery the area has to offer. It's also an easy commit to and from Miller's Ferry.

Great Hotel Amenities

Guests love the amenities this hotel offers. The indoor pool is nice and clean, and there's a hot tub for relaxing after a long day of sightseeing. Guests also love that you can rent golf carts onsite to tool around in. This amenity makes this hotel stand out.

Negative Reviews

Room Issues and Mix-ups

Several guests experienced getting room keys that didn't work or belonged to other guest rooms. Also, some guests had their room given away even though they had not checked out yet and were staying more days. You may want to double check your stay duration with the front desk.

Hotel Lacks Elevator

Be aware that this hotel does not have an elevator. You'll have to haul your luggage up the stairs to get to rooms located on the second floor. If you have persons in your party with mobility issues, this can be a problem.

Possible Noise Issues

Some guests say the hotel's walls are quite thin and that you're likely to hear everything happening in the hallway and possibly in the room next to yours.
