We stayed here for one week. The staff were pleasant, although their English was very limited (we had the advantage of having our daughter with us who is fluent in Chinese) but we managed. We stayed during winter (January) so the hotel was not full. The rooms were adequate, but not large. The bathroom was okay, although I had to clean out the shower head to get a better water flow. The drainage in the shower was very poor, so every time I took a shower the floor of the bathroom flooded. The decor was a bit "tired" - the carpet had some stains and some of the paint was peeling off the cabinets. The temperature control was okay, but we found that turning off the heat (there was no temperature control, only fan speed control) was sufficient, as leaving it on made the room too hot. The beds were comfortable. The supply of coffee and tea was good. They cleaned the rooms every day. When we needed service it was usually very prompt. When we needed a taxi the front desk was good about calling one for us.
We came from the Beijing airport (PEK) when we arrived. We took Airport bus #2 ;which dropped us off east of Deshengmen Gate. We took a taxi to Deshengmen where we we took Bus #919 for Yanqin and then a taxi to the resort. It was a bit of a trip, but much cheaper than going by taxi!
When we checked in we were to have one room - a "2 Bed room" - but it was not available so they put us in side-by-side rooms for the same price (which worked out fine for us, as there were three of us - my wife, myself and our adult daughter).
We ate twice in the restaurant that was in our building. The food was good and the price was reasonable, if not slightly on the high side.
The only major objection was that often when we opened our room door the hallway smelled of cigarette smoke.
The main entrance to the Great Wall is not far away. You can reach it by bus (most convenient and cheapest) or by train (you have to walk a distance at the wall entrance).
The resort was close enough to town that we could walk if need be. Otherwise a taxi is 10 RMB.
Overall I would say the hotel was good, but not great.
