We recently spent another great week at the Tan Tar A resort. This has become a bit of an annual tradition for us. Great place to visit, friendly staff, nice facilities...good fishing even right from the bank. Plenty of things to do right there (such as the Waterpark or the indoor pool and soon all the outside pools will be...

The resort is a large complex situated in numerous buildings over several acres. We stayed in one of the smaller buildings (4-6 units) along the lakefront. The setting is very pretty and the room we had was clean and comfortable although I would specify a balcony or patio next time. Being early in the season the resort was not too...

My wife and I returned it to Tan-Tar-A, where we honeymooned, for our 45th anniversary. We stayed in a one bedroom suite on the lakefront. The room was a little tired and the mattress a little too soft, but overall was just fine. Service was great, the food was always terrific, particularly in the Windrose. The Mother's Day brunch was...

The resort complex is surprisingly large and there is so much to do; you can horseback ride, tan, workout, swim, relax at the surprisingly affordable spa, bowl, and much more. We were here for a couple days. The staff was friendly. Parking is a bit competitive. The beds are double beds, not queen, so they may be smaller than people...

Had to speak at a medical conference. Comfortable beds and nice meeting space for state level conferences. Only downside is it was not convenient to out of state folks flying in. Prepare to drive, but the ambiance is nice!

We were in Bldg E, which apparently is very outdated compared to Bldg A. The beds were ridiculously small. The second night we decided to fold out the sofa sleeper for the kids so my husband and I could have our own beds. We fold out the sofa sleeper and find some unclean linens left in it from another guest....

Seriously? For the price I expect fresh sheets at least once during a three night stay. I at least expect the bed to be remade for real, not 'remade' with the top sheet wadded up on one side of the bed, then the comforter pulled halfway up the bed and tucked with half the comforter tucked under the bottom of...

I just got my boat recommissioned for summer and went for a short ride (cool and rainy out) before stopping by Tan-Tar-A for dinner. We were too early for the Windrose, which is an outstanding restaurant, so we went to the Black Bear. We love the rustic decor and the service and food were excellent, as always. I can't wait...

Rooms were filthy. We were in 1414 in Tower E and using a wipe had black from every surface in the room, especially the phone and remote control for the TV!

This is not ADA friendly. The entire hotel complex is a maze of hallways and staircase after staircase!
