Nice facility, but not as convenient as other hotels.

Pros: adjacent waterpark
Cons: Poor breakfast, attached restaurant is mediocre at best
Staff was helpful in resolving a potential double billing problem.

Not worth the price - Save your Money and Back Pain

We had a terrible stay at the above hotel on Sunday night 9/2. The room we had needed to be painted badly. It looks as though someone had run through the room with markers. On top of that, it was the worst bed I have ever slept in a hotel. The staff at the front desk was not friendly what so ever. \n\nLifeguards did not supervise the water park area of the hotel properly. On Sunday, they did not even have a lifeguard at the top of the tower for the waterslides. Then on Monday they were not at any stations, they were all talking and reading the newspaper at the snack shop. To top it all off you had to wait 20 minutes for a tub to go down the waterslides. As I talked to the front desk I was given the excuse ?it?s the holiday weekend?. My response to that is ?It didn?t stop you from charging me for my room on the holiday weekend?. \n

family friendly

Our first night was rough, with young kids running up and down the hallway, banging doors until 11pm. Probably because the water park stays open late. Mysteriously, the next night, Sat. was quieter.Overall, the hotel is in good shape, it seems fairly new. The worst was the bed felt pretty warn out, not comfortable. The in-room heater ran every five minutes and pretty loud. There was also an elevator crunch during checkout times, maybe if there was a walk ramp instead of staircase, they could move more people. Breakfast buffet was average, but dinner quite good. Water park was fun.

Kick this place to the curb

Chlorine levels were really high in the pool and my kids developedburning painful rashes. Hotel management couldn't have cared less about it.
