Very nice resort with newly remodeled rooms. Food is good and decently priced. There's corn hole and other small games out on the lawn for people to play. Staff is friendly and the day we were here they gave out snow cones and had s'mores. My only complaint was that the outdoor pool was FREEZING.

This property is located at one of Alabama's award winning Robert Trent Jones golf courses. The hallways are fun to walk with the beautiful carpeting in the colors of nearby Auburn University. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. A dining area on the ground floor with floor to ceiling windows, allows a walk out to the pool and outdoor bar....

We were there for a wedding and our room was great our balcony was great overlooking the golf course. It was just such a serene place to go to. Also they have a great pool with a waterfall for the kiddos.

Stopped here as first port of call for the RTJ Trail. Great hotel and superb location. Courtesy shuttle service helps with easy golf course access and off-resort dining options. Will definitely come back here again.

Our family was here for a student recognition ceremony during Auburn graduation weekend. This is a beautiful property located well off the beaten path but beautifully kept and first class. We had a nicely arranged meeting room and post-event reception that was well supplied.

Room was nice, food was good, ambience is unreal. Gym is good. Only problem with this hotel is it's hard to get a cell reception and nothing is nearby. I'll definitely stay again....service, room, facility - all top rate.

There are two outdoor pools (one very kid-friendly), one indoor pool, a nice workout room, tennis courts, pickle ball courts, pool bar and restaurant. All of this is on a lovely...

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.
