    Nothing to like except the size of the room

    Dirt and dust due to construction, smelly workout area in need of renovation, slow drain bathroom sinks, breakfast without a menu or advance notice of the charge, no help to arrange for a tennis partner, needed to call for maid service to make up room, called for sink drain assistance and a part had to be located but the problem still was not fixed. Had to call for a fridge which was delivered promptly but looked beat up. Had to call twice to get and extra luggage rack which came on day two.

    not a whole lot

    the room we stayed in had a sewer odor at times but the other room was ok. the ice machines that were on the eastern side of the property have been removed and you have to hike couple hundred yards to get ice. they call it a golf resort but they sold the golf course a year ago.there is street noise from the road which is just over the fence from the room.the value isn't there considering what they offer. they should change the name because there is no golf resort.

    Very good

    The rooms are very nice but from the outside it looks like apartments kinda private. And lots of stairs for someone with a stroller

    It's 30 mins away from everything so I felt like we were driving a lot with a 3 year old and an infant it was kind of a pain having to take them in and out of the car

    The patio door opened on the wrong side. There was major construction going on and there was no information about this before hand. It stated on line we could have a roll out bed in our room, however when we arrived the hotel said it was not possible. Breakfast was unsatisfactory in the make shift ballroom

    The pool it was free and heated

    The unfriendly staff. The staff didn't communicate policies. Everything had an extra charge. The TV was fuzzy and didn't have all the channels it was supposed to have. Could hear people upstairs walking around and could hear toilet flush. Our toilet ran all the time. Coke machine was 4 dollars for a soda pop. Hot tub broken too.

    Very good

    Very friendly staff.

    While undergoing renovations, the selection of eating options left a lot to be desired and the breakfast buffet left a lot to be desired considering the price.

    Great

    The proximity to the freeway which made it easier/closer to our family that we were visiting.

    The parking is a bit tight in some areas. We stayed on the first floor and the sound transmission from the upstairs is a bit loud. If I do visit/stay at the Double Tree again, which is probable, I will book an up stairs room.
