This place is why the word RESORT was invented! The grandeur of the entire place is breath taking! Opulent without making you feel uncomfortable, always someone available to assist you and very respectful. The outdoor commonplace has everything any family or couple could ask for. Worth the drive, which is also beautiful and a must do for at least once in a lifetime!

I love the location and the grounds and really want to rate this resort favorably. The previous remarks about maintenance problems are spot on. Almost everywhere you look there are signs of neglect. Filthy carpets in the main lobby, tiles missing in the spa pool, peeling paint everywhere. Our suite had not been swept before we arrived- two calls later finally got housekeeping in to take care of it. Inoperable lights, broken drain in the bathtub, refrigerator that would only go above freezing when it was unplugged, noisy air-conditioning; really just too much to consider reasonable. For the price of the suite and the fact that this is an Omni property, one would and should expect more. Finally, many of the staff could use some training . On several occasions we encountered folks who did not seem to be very competant in their duties and responsibilities-or possibly did not care. We love the location, but there are better resorts to visit in the region. It is a shame to see such a wonderful place starting to slip.

Unparalleled setting for a resort. Omni has recently acquired property and you can see the new life being breathed into this grand resort! Great for families or a weekend escape. Can't wait till we have opportunity to return

This was the most disappointing getaway I've had. I called about 2 weeks in advance of my stay to make reservations for pedicures, dinner, and activities. I called 3 times over the course of 3 days and left messages each time, and no one called me back. I finally called again and asked for the hotel manager, and he was able to accommodate my requests, and offered a room upgrade and spa passes to make up for the lack of return calls. Then I received 3 voicemail messages from various people asking if they could help me make a reservation, so the staff clearly don't communicate with each other. When we checked in at 4pm, we went to our room to take a nap, then got up and went to dinner at Sam Snead's tavern where we had a reservation at 7pm. We got to the restaurant only to learn that someone had called at 5:30pm to cancel our reservation. Luckily, they were able to fit us in, but the service by our waiter, Mike, was appallingly bad. The next day, we went for pedicures, and were expecting something really fantastic given that the price was 4 times what one would normally pay for a pedicure elsewhere. While the women were nice who were giving the pedicures, it was just your average run-of-the-mill service that I could have gotten at a salon for $25. We followed that with the cascades hike, and we had heard that the guide, Brian, was really funny and entertaining. Brian was on vacation, so Allen was our guide. So disappointing. He had very little to say and didn't speak loud enough for all 12 of us on the hike to hear him, and he spent most of the time talking with a young woman interested in herbology. We'd all hike ahead, then sit around waiting for 10-15 minutes for the 2 of them to catch up. I couldn't believe we had paid for that. What should have been a 2 to 2 1/2 hour hike ended up being closer to 3 1/2 hours, causing us to miss the daily tea they apparently serve in the lobby. At dinner at Jefferson's that night, they were out of the first 3 glasses of wine we ordered from the menu. The waitress went to one of the other restaurants to see if they had any of them, but no luck. So we finally just said, bring us whatever. I will say that the waitress, Cricket, was very nice and the salmon was excellent. Other than that, the whole place is really run down. There were stains and holes in the furniture, the curtains and carpet were stained and fraying, there was water damage to the prints hanging on the walls, and things just generally seemed to be falling apart. They have displays talking about the history of the place, and they were filthy with dust and bug carcasses. Simple things like making sure the tag for the silverware display matched what was actually on display weren't even right. When we checked in, there were hairs all over the bathroom from the previous guests. When we put out dirty dishes in the hall for clearing, they were still there 24 hours later. They parked a cleaning cart directly in front of the door for several hours, but didn't actually clean our room until around 4:30pm. They didn't give us fresh water glasses or of the complimentary coffee (and no teas were offered at all). Given how much they charge, I was expecting better. On top of your room fee, they also charge a daily "resort service charge" and a dailyfee for you using their parking lot (not even valet). There was also rarely anyone actually at the concierge desk. We had requested a late check-out, but ended up getting up early and leaving because we didn't want to spend any extra time there than we had to. Upon check-out, they asked if we had had a chance to review our invoice but we hadn't even received one yet. If one or two things had gone wrong, I could have overlooked it, but almost every aspect of our stay went wrong. Start to finish, this was a hugely disappointing stay and we won't be returning or recommending the facility.

Wonderful experience. I am a nursing mother who pumps and they provided us with a small refrigerator for our room as soon as we got there. Great food and service with a very friendly staff! Had a wonderful time.

Overall this place was excellent. Wonderful staff, good food, gorgeous hikes, OK mini golf, and the hot springs themselves are so relaxing. On top of that we took advantage of some of their related events like the shooting range and horseback riding. The one drawback was the room itself, very comfortable but not taken care of. Our toilet rocked and felt like it was about to break, our sink faucet gave out hot or cold water at random, and the wifi was spotty. Definitely worth a visit, but they need to start taking care of their rooms.

Absolutely a beautiful place inside and out! The staff is incredible, they go above and beyond to ensure you are having a great experience. Shopping area, spa, golf swimming, casino, you name it and it may very well be at your fingertips. The food is GREAT and the dining room staff make sure the food is fresh and plentiful. A Wonderful place for any occasion!!

Many things to do. Very isolated. The staff could know more about the restaurants, so be sure that you explore them yourself, especially Jefferson's bar/lounge area which is quite extensive. We recommend exploring the hotel before you make decisions. Online reading information is deficient to make the best choices.
