What A Dump
This is a very old and outdated resort. We had intended on staying for a week,however checked out the next morning.First condo was very dirty and linens were in need of changing,chairs and furniture was dirty,carpet smelled of mildew.We were then sent to another condo....not much better. Anyway we left after one night.staff was very nice and even had a book of the better units,if you must stay ask for an updated unit,furniture from the late 80's.
We stayed in room 325. The hotel does need some renovation. Our beds were comfortable; our room was clean. The carpets were clean (a biggie to me). We didn't have time for the pool. Would not recommend having a catered event here. Sound system didn't work, and the food was mediocre. With some renovation, this could be a nice place.
Not a 3 Star
I was hoping NOT to get this hotel again through PL, but did. $54..waay too much.
We just stayed here overnight. I had stayed here 2yrs ago during a blizzard and I really didn't notice anything wrong; I was just grateful to not to be on the road.
Anyway, we arrived very late in the evening and seeing the Tiki torches lit up was impressive upon checking in. That's where it ends.
Our room was #100. Overall it seemed to be clean. The beds were hard and old. Pillows were flat- Bring your own. Towels were old and gray-Bring your own. This hotel really needs an overhaul.
I have no idea how this is rated a 3 star, but it isn't.
The scenery is beautiful around the hotel; you're better off camping here.
What a dump!
Let me start out by telling you what is good about this place. The location and hotel grounds are beautiful, right on Cheat Lake. There are two golf courses, both of which are fantastic, and tthe spa and fitness facility are top notch. The tiki bar is fun in the evenings.
Now onto the bad. The actual hotel is a dump. It needs to be torn down and completely replaced. The rooms are filthy. Carpet in the rooms and in the hallways needs to be replaced. Bed linens and towels are thin and need to be replaced. The wallpaper and paint throughout the hotel was peeling. The bathroom in our room was disgusting (Management if you read this it was room 254). I am not sure it had been cleaned. The bottom of the shower/bathtub was black with mold. I would not get in it without flip-flops covering my feet. The bath and body works amenities were a nice touch but maybe that extra money should be spent on cleaning supplies. The sheets had not been changed since the last visitors had stayed in the room. When I pulled back the covers in both beds, the sheets were covered with hair (not mine). The lipstick from the previous visitor on the pillow case was a nice touch. There was a weird smell throughout the hotel that reminded me of the cheap Holiday Inns I stayed in as a child twenty years ago.
The restaurants are both terrible. The food is horrible. Reflections has no business marketing itself as a fine dining establishment because it is far from that. It really is a shame because the view is fantastic.
This hotel has really gone down hill over the last five years and it is a shame. This used to be the place to stay in Morgantown and the place to have an event, but not anymore. Management really needs to look into renovating this place to bring it back to the resort destination that it used to be. Until that happens, I will stay at the Radisson downtown.
Staff is very helpful but unless you are really into golf the place really doesn't offer much. Rooms and halls are musty smelling with peeling wall paper. Restaurant staff is good but menu is less than stellar.
Had a relaxing getaway all in one place!
My partner and I stayed at the lakeview resort and we had a great laid back break without really living the hotel. We hung out at the fitness center (indoor poor was out of order) in the whirlpool, sauna and steamroom. We went to the spa right up the hill. We drank at the pub, played pool and slots. We took pictures of the area. It was a great little get-away. The facilities were clean and comfortable (not outstanding, but nice). The staff was nice (not very knowledgable about the area though). We are going back next weekend for another short getaway. I would definitely reccomend this place!
Not so sure
stayed in a 2 bdrom condo. condo was fine. old, in need of a good cleaning and some updating. missing lots of "normal" amenities. only 4 very small coffee cups, very few dishes (good thing we had brought paper plates) stairs are very very creaky, bathrooms were clean, beds were the most awful we have ever slept on, only 2 chairs on porch,.
golf course looked nice (were not there long enought to use it htough. we did rent a (sp?) pontoon boat on lake cheat - enjoyed ourselves. kids had a great time! ate breakfast at (??) ruth and ketchies?? very very good! loved the biscuits and gravy.
lots of families. no lifeguard at condo pool - not sure about the main pool at hotel.
playground at condo - in desperate need of an overhaul of some sort! wood is all rotted and not much to do at all. sand is a nice touch though. pool in condo area was very very very warm. we have a pool at home, so, this was noticed asap.
clubhouse - very strange - pool table out of order, saw a pinball machine - didnt look like it worked either.
all in all - we would not go back. not really worth it for us. and, this is just my opinion.
drive was pretty though (from cleveland).
also - it does seem to be service oriented (which is good)
stayed over memorial day weekend, was looking for a hotel in the area (i live around here) that had a pool and was close by for my 3yr old. The weather forecast wasn't that great, so an "indoor pool" was the main reason i booked here plus i had stayed here numerous times over the years. When i got there, they told me the "indoor pool" was closed due to a electrical problem....went and saw it and it was completely drained and looked as if major renovations were going on. So, wasn't real happy and my daughter was majorly disappointed. Rooms were very below average, the closet door was ready to fall off, there wasn't any type of guide to the hotel in the roomo so i could figure out what was available or what hours or anything. Called the front desk and they said they didn't have anything to replace it. Blood pressure climbing. Ready to leave. But, the people there were trying there best to provide great service. Key was trying! Dining was also average. This facility has really dropped off in quality over the years. Waiters disappeared during dinner and breakfast. Food was nothing but average. All buffet all the time. Dining room even closed on mondays! Anyway, i'll stay at the raddison next time, pay the extra money. But, if you like golf, the courses are still primo for around here!!!!
Stayed in the Condo's and enjoyed a week of golf
Check in was on time an excellent for a change. The activities set up for the week were done well and spirited. Save a few issues with the golf package, the weather semi cooperated and we were able to play several rounds of golf. Overall, I enjoy the accomodating and pleasing service I received all week.
I just came back from the Lakeview Scanticon
gofl Resort in wonderful Morgantown W. Va. I had 0
hopes for this place but was told it had great affordable golf and was a good get-a-way from Philly, about 3.5 h.
It was spectacular. The prices were really, really
reasonable and the people were sooo nice. Thier Lakeview golf course is one of the best courses I have ever played ...really scenic, hard but playable and in excellent condition. Food is super and the rooms are pretty good. Go there for a good retreat..it's worth it.

... stadium from the highway. A beautiful setting for a university, but I still think UW with its classroom buildings, dorms and Memorial Union right on the lake is still the most beautiful campus ever. I might be prejudiced.
Not too many photos today....I am still trying to convince Armando that he can take lots of photos and it's okay.....he is NOT wasting film!!! When I ...
... For instance in the kitchen the vent was at each end (balance) of the counter allowing the perfect place to warm plates. In one of the bathrooms, at the back of a long shelf towels that hung above were warmed. There was no air conditioning, the windows all opened front to back providing the best cross breezes in the heat of summer. A fan installed in the kitchen at the top of a wall was painted that beautiful red, to match the window frames and the doorknobs. ...
... us, we follow our instructions and make our way to our room. High four poster beds, white chenille spreads, huge armoires - we quickly get organized. We needed to eat. The kitchen is closed. Off we go reversing our steps. The only place open is the Casino 20 minutes down the road. We are desperate and head into this smoke filled cavity of a room but at the back is a restaurant. Interesting but weird. We eat. We leave. We head back ...

Our innkeeper warned us so that we would not be alarmed. Pretty ...
... so beautiful. It was very different from what I had pictured but it exceeded my expectations. It was also exciting to be there since famous people like Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and rumoured Albert Einstein had stayed there before as well. There are also many original paintings and drawings by Diego Rivera and Pablo Picasso throughout the house. Another great place if you appreciate ...
