Stayed at The International for a wedding. Overall our experience was horrific. Bugs in the rooms. Staff were rude and condescending; hotel rooms were outdated. This place is still in business because there are very few hotels in the area; if there was competition they would be out of business very quickly. The golf course is the draw; otherwise, the...

I manage a travel hockey team and stay in many different hotels. After each trip I survey the players (and parents, if applicable) to get their thoughts on each hotel. Everyone really liked this place. We normally stay at chain hotels so this was a change for us. It's definitely an event lodge, but we found the rooms to be...

Staff couldn't do enough for us--excellent service. The food was very good--ate in restaurant and had catered meals with meetings. Mid-century vibe and ambiance--sort of "Mad-Men". Lots of meeting spaces of various sizes.

I recently attended a 4 day retreat, sponsored by The Quilted Crow, in Bolton, and it was fantastic. it was a quiet weekend at the golf course, but we couldn't have been treated any better. The staff was amazing, and went out of their way to meet our every need. When I asked about iced coffee, the staff immediately put...

Pros: Front-desk staff was pleasant Beds were reasonably comfortable and included clean, white bedding Rooms were quiet Cons: Dingy and old carpet and furniture Hideous bathroom lighting and non-draining shower/tub Literally no service or amenities at all; we needed a sewing kit. I can understand not having them in every room but the front desk couldn't cough one up either....

Returned after 4 yrs and it's the same--dull. Golf course is beautiful, rooms are nice size but dull interior. Our room the corners of the windows and closet had spider webs, I cleaned them myself after leaving a note. If you did not understand the lay out it's hard to find the room with continental breakfast, some friends got lost....

This is not a typical hotel, in that the lodge is really only for parties and conferences. The staff was very helpful. The rooms were pretty big and roomy, but also pretty basic. The food we had was good. We ate 3 meals a day there and nothing was ever repeated.

Just came from an extra joyous wedding at The International. Going there from Providence RI, we were wondering why we were traveling to this seemingly no where place. When we got there, we understood. Both the snow covered golf course, the trees and the celebratory halls were quite beautiful. The food and service, especially the hors d'oeuvres, were delicious. I...

I have to disagree with the critical reviews - my wife and I attended a New Year's Eve party at The International and everything was close to perfect. The room was spacious and clean - my only criticism is, the room lacked a dresser, so there weren't really enough drawers for folded clothes; although for our one-night stay that didn't...

This supposedly high-class golf resort includes a tired hotel (the Lodge) and a very poorly trained staff. From the moment we made reservations for a group wedding event, they got everything wrong. When I called several months later to confirm the reservation, they indicated that I didn't have a "real" reservation, and that the number they'd given me was a...
