Could be better

The resort has potential but with a broken thermostat we were unable to cool the room below 79 degrees which made sleeping tough. There is no housekeeping offered so they suggested we throw out our own trash and with mini trash cans it was a bit of a drag. The shower handle was falling off and the bathroom towel rod did fall off. It would also be nice to have a few towels per person since no housekeeping is offered. Without any food options near by it would be nice to have a kitchen that offered food, especially if the restaurant is not offering food for the night.

Wish we could have ordered food to go

Beautiful stay but couldn’t get food to go at restaurant. Weird they would only serve patrons who dined in.

Yes, I recommend this property.

Great one bedroom apartment with jetted tub in bathroom

Everything was great. Room had great views. Room was neat with a fireplace. Jetted tub was a great add on to our trip. Hotel staff went the extra mile by placing the cake my wife ordered in. the fridge to ensure it will be a surprise for me. Only issue was that the bathroom felt little outdated compared to rest of the apartment.

Yes, I recommend this property.

If this was my first time I'd be concerned

First, let me state by saying I have visited David Walleys many times. Each time it has been fantastic. This time... not so much. When I arrived, my room that I was given smelled like a complete ash tray. Not just a small lingering of smoke, a smell that if you closed your eyes you'd think you were in a casino. When I went back to the front desk, they said they had no more rooms and housekeeping? could come by. Surely, they didn't understand that spray wasn't going to solve this issue, but I gave them the benefit of the doubt. The housekeepers (who were wonderful, btw) were literally blown away by the smell and said to call the front desk again. So I did. AGAIN I was told there was nothing they could do. Their manager was away. REALLY? Normally, I'm not one to complain, but I was literally having issues breathing it smelled so bad. Thankfully, I kept pushing them and finally got a new room, which as per my previous experiences, was great. BUT, here's the thing. For a non-smoking site, I'm not sure how this room even smelled like it did. Furthermore, I'm concerned the staff would even let it be used AND try to force someone to stay there? I get these are hard times with covid, but to not respect the customer, LIE to them that there were no rooms (oh, and btw their manager was onsite, too) and even have such a room smell that bad, is completely frustrating and unacceptable. Would I recommend this? I'm not sure. If it was my first visit I would definitely think twice, but my previous visits have given me hope that this was a one-time visit issue.

Yes, I recommend this property.
