2/10 Poor

Not sure why this is rated so high. They moved us from lake view to a suite with a view of the parking lot. Room was about 40 years outdated, had old ripped couch with wicker furniture that had mismatched cushions in the living room. We killed about a dozen ants and 3 spiders within the first few hours. Foundation is so bad the bed was tilted and caused you to keep rolling to one side. Pool was filthy, tennis court had no nets and weeds all over it. Really had a bad stay.

6/10 Good

Basin Harbor is a bit like stepping back in time. It is a charming resort full of old fashion touches. The location and grounds are beautiful and there are tons of activities for kids and grown ups. Many people seem to be regulars. The staff is super friendly and accommodating. The rooms and the lodge, however, could definitely use some renovations and upgrades. Everything feels dated and could use some sprucing up. The room was tiny and darkish. There was no TV. Shower barely gave a couple of minutes of hot water.

Fair, room had a broken lock so door didn’t close properly. Person was sent to fix it shortly before I checked out also bathroom window had very large cracks. Staff was very laid back about fixing broken lock, didn’t seem to care.

Complete resort, centered around an excellent golf course typical of Ireland/Scotland. Despite being huge, everthing seemed close to where we stayed.
