Verified Reviews of Lakehouse Hotel & Resort

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Terrible front desk staff."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Prior to arrival, we spoke to front desk about specific rooms and were told it was going to cost over 2k (totally wrong info), then when we arrived, we asked again and front desk automatically told us everything was booked then when we told her we were just told it was available, she looked again and then said yes (which was weird because she clearly didn't check the first time we asked) and the worst part was it was half the price of what the girl on the phone said. Clearly they are providing false information and not staying consistent. Then when we got to the room, we came to find that the fridges were not working so the food we had went straight to the garbage, the kitchen trash hadn't been taken from the previous guests out and it wreaked, the patio was not wiped down at all but we didn't complain because it's outdoors so we let it go. When we let front desk know about the trash and fridge, all we got in return was ?I'm sorry?. I then called housekeeping and told the person who answered and she was very apologetic and embarrassed that the room wasn't clean and offered to have housekeeping come and do a full service. Then a little before we checked out, we came to find there were several amenities that came with our stay and when we said something to front desk, she told us that since she's not the one who checked us in, it wasn't her responsibility to tell us so she basically blamed her manager then when we spoke to the manager, she said she lets everyone know instead of just apologizing. We had to go back and forth which was not necessary. The whole experience was not the best which is a shame because the facility is beautiful and we would love to come back. Just wish front desk was more professional and on top of things.

"Beware Of hidden charges."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The grounds are beautiful the hotel is just an overpriced motel. However we prepaid in full the whole amount months before we came in. Once we got there they even advised us at check in you've already prepaid in full. Only when you check out do they mention to you a $40 resort fee per night. Not once did it say it anywhere in our reservation they did not mention it at the beginning when we checked in during incidentals or nothing. This is very dishonest practice of any hotel.

"Nice Property / Bad Rooms and Service."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
We booked the hotel well in advance and paid for a room with two beds for our party of 4. When we arrived, we were given a room with one bed and told that's all they had. They also told us they had overbooked by 8 rooms. Then, they gave us the wrong key three times, so it took us an hour to check in. Our room had a ton of ants and they had to come spray three times during our four night stay. The property was nice, but the rooms and service left something to be desired.

"Poolside View"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
We loved our stay! We stayed in the poolside view room on the second floor and had no complaints! In the morning we walked down to the coffee shop and had a delicious tres leche latte and went for a stroll along the lake! We were short on time due to only staying one night for a wedding but hopefully we'll be back so we can try out the little pedal boats ?.

"Not worth it."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Not worth the money. My husband and I came for a family wedding that I was in. We asked for an early check in as check in is 4pm and the wedding was at 4:30pm on location. I was in the wedding and would have liked to get our room settled before the ceremony. The rooms are bland, the bathrooms are lacking. Our refrigerator in the room was so loud at night we had to unplug it. The ceremony spot was pretty and romantic. But the reception space was very plain. Sure some of that is based off what the marrying couple want to spend, you'll need a lot to give it some flare. The service during the ceremony was non existent. No water refills, they took the chargers after the salad course. And speaking of salad, it was like four bites. Dinner, had the tacos. Absolutely terrible and not enough food considering the cost per person as I was told from the bride. This place should be appalled by the look, taste, quality and quantity of food. I feel sorry my family spent money to be here for such a special day in their lives. And I wish we didn't spend the night at the hotel and had gone home instead. I'm receiving a $75 dollar credit for this review. I rather just receive that money back as we will never be returning. Do yourself a favor, don't have your wedding here, don't stay here. Sure Maybe if you have smaller wedding and you spend the money to decorate and maybe they have better food if you pay more for it. But I wouldn't stay the night unless maybe you are the bride and groom in the cabin rooms. Those are pretty decent. Although the couch in the brides cabin had a burn hole in the couch..

Overall Score4.0/ 5
We stayed at the Lakehouse due to our cousin getting married there but will definitely be back! Rooms are nice, food and drinks were good and we didn't even get to enjoy half of all the amenities they offer. Looking forward to our next stay so we can spend more time at the pool, on the lake and even the golf course!

Overall Score5.0/ 5
The staff was very kind and accommodating. Love all the fun things that they give you at check in: smores kit, freebies for stand up paddle boarding or kayaking. Also, savings for various things. The place is very clean and well kept and the lake is fun. Very fun place to have a family reunion! Would go again.

"A relaxing resort to enjoy during all seasons."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Our stay at the Lakehouse was lovely; we were in town for only one night to attend a wedding but found the resort to be classy. It had great staff, modern rooms that were spacious and plenty to do at the resort. This resort is a hidden gem!

Overall Score2.0/ 5
There were a large amount of ants in our room and even in the beds! We called housekeeping FOUR times and had to physically visit the front desk to get someone to come spray the room and change the sheets. No offer for a discount or to change rooms. We were not happy at all with this hotel.

"Not worth the money."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Nice location but we got a view of the parking lot even though we booked months in advance.They charge a $20 resort fee daily even if you roll in late at night. and haveno need for the free hour paddle boats..not exactly a resort so thats a rip off. Upon questioning a $20 resort charge at 10 PM and leave at 7 AM the last day they staye its just their policy. Beds are comfortable but are extremely short if you get the two doubke beds. Rooms seem old, carpet worn and ugly. We had food on the dock at the bar and grill, food was horrible (no taste) and it took a long time to get out as they were having issues getting receipts to print. Not the worst place I've stayed but reviews showing 9 out of 10 are ridiculous. I give it a 5, more of a two star hotel.

"Peaceful with great atmosphere and view of Lake San Marcos."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I enjoyed my 10 days at the Lakehouse Hotel and Resort. I was able to work remotely during the day in my room with the sliding glass door open and a suitable desk to work from. Although the ergonomics were not acceptable, to I had to improvise and bring in the patio table to facilitate my Mouse and Keyboard. I don't know why the adjoining doors that are optional to connect two rooms are still available. These doors are not sound proof, I can hear whats going on in other room. I feel these are useless, since the rooms are at a high price, I would be surprised if guests book two room and use them. As usual, the grounds are beautiful and well designed. The pool is kept up. But, I can see wear and tear on the hallway walls and inside the rooms as well. Carpets are worn, but understand the maintenance and balance of budget. The shower and bathrooms are really nice. I love the style and workmanship of the bathroom shower. Thank you very much! Michael.

"Room for improvement."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Our room smelled like smoke upon arriving. Within 10 mins of being in our room, my one year old picked up a dirty fork from under the bed which concerned and made us check the rest of the room. Then we found a dirty disposable glove on the floor. Management moved us to a different room which was supposed to be an upgrade however we would've been completely happy to stay in our original room had it been in the condition we expected it to be in which is clean and presentable. The new room they moved us to had really low water pressure in the bathroom sink, but we found no use in informing management as it would've been another hassle to pack up our things and move to yet another room. A little disappointed with my experience and unsure if I would stay here again.

"I had already contacted Marriott prior to finding your site, but you got us a deal $24 cheaper per night than Marriott was willing to offer! Also, since the rooms are blocked for our wedding, the website with our own URL was perfect. This was the most convenient and easy to use service I have encountered since starting to plan the wedding. I had the whole room blocking process done in 48 hours, it saved a lot of time and money. Thanks!" C.T. - Richmond, BC
