The pool not working, resourant not working. Nothing to do there in January. The room was old with cracks in the walls. The bed linen was so old that it had holes. Very bad experience

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We sincerely apologize for the lack of amenities during your stay. We have made the decision to close the Windjammer Bar and Grill during the off-season due to lack of staffing and business, and our pool was closed due to maintenance repair work. We've contacted our housekeeping department about the state of the linen in your room. If you would like to contact a manger here on property to further discuss the details of your stay, we will be happy to talk to you.

We loved our view & we loved the pool. A few things we didn't particularly like: the mattress was way too firm, we had absolutely horrible service at the Windjammer Grill, and the Tradewinds restaurant wasn't open in the evening although the online site & GPS said they reopened at 5pm plus for a weekend in my opinion they breakfast ended way too early (some people love to sleep in), there weren't too many other options for restaurants close by (especially to celebrate our wedding anniversary) & my husband would say the shower head was too low (he's 6'6"). Other than that, we had a relaxing time & we would consider returning if we brought something to go on top of the mattress so we weren't so uncomfortable sleeping. Overall, it wasn't too bad for a quick getaway to celebrate our wedding anniversary.

Thank you for your review of Fourwinds. We're glad to know you enjoyed the view and the pool. I apologize for the service you received at the Windjammer Bar and Grill - we are working to correct a staffing shortage at the moment. I have checked our website and it lists the Tradewinds Restaurant as open for breakfast hours only. We do have a firm mattress in all of our rooms, and I apologize that that is too firm for you. We're glad to know you enjoyed parts of your stay here!

The hotel sits on Monroe lake which is beautiful. Everything was very clean, hotel, beach and the hotel grounds. The restaurant at the hotel probably needs a new menu. The selections were sparse and the food was fried and over cooked. We'll definitely be back but with groceries.
