The room was nice, but had kind of a musty smell. The view was ok. We had a balcony and we had a pretty decent view of the hills. Our room overlooked the parking lot but the safety rail mostly blocked the parking lot view so that was good. The restaurant and bar are great! And the free breakfast is tremendous. Staff was very friendly!!

Wonderful and comfortable accommodations. Excellent dining experience in the restaurant for dinner. Complementary breakfast had limited options, but was very tasty. Great coffee in the room but bring your bottled water. Outside entry to each room. Easy to navigate walkways and they provide a map. Great pool and hot tub. Will be back.

The staff was very welcoming and tried to accommodate our needs. This was a last minute reservation made in the parking lot of the Lodge, because we wanted to see the neighborhood first. So, VIP upgrades and even an accessible room were not available. The desk staff tried to help and gave us a room near the restaurant and a short walk from parking. We will stay here again, hopefully with more preparation.
