When visiting Lake Lure, The Esmeralda Inn is a great choice to consider. You can indulge in massages or facials, and American cuisine is served at The Esmeralda Restaurant, which is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. An outdoor pool and a spa tub are offered, and rooms get the details right with premium bedding and bathrobes.
The location was good, getting to the hotel was not pleasant. The weather was fantastic. The golf was excellent, golf rate was great. The security staff was fabulous. Accommodations were comfortable. The very unpleasant part was that the hotel did not ever receive our reservations and it took almost 2 hours to check in. The security staff was kind enough to find us accommodations. The hotel still did have our reservations upon our checking out.
Pros: The location and offered activities were excellent.
Cons: The hotel was fine - the cheek in experience was Dreadful!
Cons: The bathrooms are glorified closets. If u take a shower at night, there is no light so u have to leave curtain open. There is a step down into the bathroom that you WILL trip over, fall or stub your toe. We also slept on top of the covers and the pool closes at 7.
