Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

Staff was attentive during check in. Answered several questions about the local eating spots. Room was spotless. Did not play golf as we were there for USTA tennis sectionals. Wife and I did walk the trails one night. Very nice scenery along the lakes and edge of golf course. We did not utilize the pool or poolside restaurant this trip.
