I stayed at the suites. the garage underneath each suite is where supplies are kept, where the workers gather in the morning to start their day. They need to be quiet and understand that there are guests in the suites. oftentimes there are shouts etc. Also, pool area needs updating! While the water temperature was pleasant, the pool Is in...

First, thank you for letting us know that you had an enjoyable stay. Of course, the staff needs to be very aware of noise while working. We are meeting with them today about this. And yes, the pool is scheduled to be completely renovated. I truly hope you'll return soon. If I can be of assistance, please do not hesitate... More

From the moment you drive in you feel you have entered an exotic, rustic and quiet getaway. Our room was beautiful and private. I opted for one night romance package and second night spa package. My husband loved the rose petals leading to the bedroom with champagne and chocolate truffles. The private hot tubs on our deck as well as... More

It is fantastic that you had a wonderful two-night getaway. I'll let the spa director know that you thought you had the "best massages" ever. Of course, I'm disappointed about the bartender. I'm looking into that this morning. We are looking forward to you and your husband returning, and your son and his wife staying with us. Please contact me... More

Room had damage door, desk top has damaged finish and the exterior wooden patio pots were falling apart with the dirt pouring out onto the patio next to the whirlpool access step.

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry that you had some negative experiences. We've completely renovated all the suites, except that one building, which is scheduled to be renovated in 2017. Of course, there shouldn't be maintenance work at 9 am! I'm speaking with the engineering and maintenance crew about that this morning. Please contact me about this, reference this... More

My husband and I stayed at Sycamore right after we got married for a three night mini-honeymoon. Everything about our stay was perfect from start to finish! We stayed in one of the renovated king suites in the West Meadows, which I would highly recommend. Our suite was spacious, comfortable, and very private, and the grounds are beautiful. We really...

We will never stay here again! It's fraud that you people call this a 4 or 5 star hotel. It doesn't deserve any stars, shame on you guy's for stealing peoples money like this and showing false adds about what your place really looks like. We were in an old dingy dirty room, dirty carpets, etc. Lights weren't working right.... More

I'm sorry I do not know what room you stayed in. To date, we've completely renovated almost all the suites, and are slated to complete the rest of the suites and the standard rooms in 2017.

Room deficiencies included difficult to operate climate control, a simple thermostat would be much simpler for guests to understand and operate. We never did get the AC to function correctly. The bathroom sinks did not appear to have hot water. We stayed 2 nights but did not request room service. However, we only had 1 packet of coffee. We could... More
