The Waterfront Inn, The Villages
I will be back , if the price is right .
No Problems at all , They only offer free coffee in the lobby but they do have a restaurant to buy breakfast . Great staff . The fridge in the room is the mini dorm fridge , not the 3/4 size most hotels in the area have . They do have a do it yourself laundry room on the 4th floor . 2.00 for wash and 2.00 for dryer . This is not listed on their website , but very helpful if you need to use it . I paid about 125.00 a night which was great for the location....if you have a fire tv HDMI type plug in when you travel they do not support it , they should since they have the plug ins available . But no way to switch to it with the remote , this should be a standard for all hotels nowadays ...

The hotel was great. More than one staff person at the front desk would be helpful, I had to wait for assistance a number of times because there was only one person to assist with everything--check-in, conceirge-type questions, etc. Otherwise it was a great place.

Nice hotel I’ll definitely come back a little further from where my sister lives in Summerville but the extra ten minutes is work it Thanks

Our room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. The cleanliness of the bathroom, however, left much to be desired with lots of the dust on the sconces and fingerprints on the mirrors. The bathtub did not drain properly due, I would guess, to a clogged drain. We had water up to our ankles in seconds. We let the staff member at the check in area know after the first night but nothing was done to remedy the tub or the level of cleaning. We may very well go back to the area; however, it is doubtful we will stay at the Waterfront Inn. That is really too bad because the location is perfect and the waterfront view is marvelous.
