Rooms & Rates

Located a 90-minute drive north of Dallas, The Tanglewood Resort offers a scenic retreat overlooking one of Texas's largest reservoirs, which is "well-known for its champion bass fishing, sailing, camping and hiking" (Forbes).

Rooms are fresh from a renovation completed in April 2016 and come with complimentary Wi-Fi. For scenic views of Lake Texoma, be sure to upgrade to a Lakeview room.

On-site amenities abound, as guests can tee off at the property's private Arnold Palmer-designed 18-hole championship golf course, take a dip in one of the resort's three pools or relax at the full-service spa. There are two restaurants, with the Commodore Room offering more upscale fare and Skooners Vacation Bar & Grill serving up casual all-American favorites.

For further exploring afield, the Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge sits a 20-minute drive from the property and offers some of the area's best bird and wildlife watching. For a little more adventure, drive just five minutes from the resort to try your hand at operating a 26-ton excavator or bulldozer at Pottsboro's new Extreme Sandbox location, featured on an episode of "Shark Tank."

It needs an upgrade desperately. Stuck in 1985.

Upon entry into our room there was the stench of poo as someone had evacuated and not flushed and there were stains quite visible on the linens. Staff promptly changed our room and apologized. At checkout our printout had costs that did not make sense. When I explained that we used Travelzoo and the total disclosed was different we were told that we did not because their system showed Expedia. At check-in we we told that we could upgrade our room for $20 so we agreed however at checkout we discovered thru the confusion that the $20 costs was DAILY. Other fees did not match Travelzoo either. Not a happy camper.

The room itself was nice. Comfortable and well decorated.

The pictures and descriptions created an expectation of a beautiful resort facility. What we experienced was a run down, tired looking place that has obviously seen better days. The rooms weren't bad, but the exterior looks extremely run down and neglected. Very disappointed as we drove up and saw what it really looks like.

Yes, the resort was very nice, although the rooms were not $200+ type rooms so very grateful for the $89 Travel Zoo special! I would not go back unless another special deal is offered. The breakfast was wonderful! The scenery was pretty. It was a good place to meet with our friends with lots of places to be able to sit and visit - and Choctaw Casino was only 25 miles from the resort. Except for the check in experience with the HC room we enjoyed our stay.

After booking with Travel Zoo and requesting a handicap accessible room with 2 queen beds, I called Tanglewood to confirm. I was assured we would have a handicap room with a roll in shower, grab bars, shower stool (my husband cannot walk, stand by himself, or climb into a bathtub). I then called again 2 weeks before we were to arrive to check on the handicap room and was told again it was confirmed. Upon arrival at the resort I was told a handicap room was NOT on my reservation, and they only had HC rooms with a tub available. Their solution was to put us in a regular room and several doors down the hall was a handicap shower we could use! I refused that offer. Finally after almost an hour they said they could put us in a king bed room with a roll in shower and pull down shower stool, which had not been offered at the beginning of check in. We took that room, went to the room - NO shower stool! Back to the front desk and a shower stool was delivered to the room in 20 minutes.
