Great for kids!Posted Aug 13, 2016
Rooms were spacious and beds were comfy. We liked having t In room refrigerator. My only negative would be the lifeguard staff in the little water park. They paid NO attention to the people and kids in the pool and equipment. They sat in one place, ate and talked.

Good place for the pricePosted Apr 26, 2016 on Orbitz
Pros: Lobby had a cozy feeling, not too noisy or crowded and wonderful breakfast variety.
Cons: More comfortable beds
Location: Nice variety of nearby stores & dining.
Found this hotel to be the best price in the area (which included a water park) for our family of 5. The staff was friendly, hotel was not too noisy or crowded. Unfortunately part of the pool area (the small child water area) was closed but they offered an apology and a refund if we wanted to stay elsewhere. The breakfast was wonderful (included eggs & meat). The room was clean (did notice some cobwebs on top of one of the lamps) and nicely decorated but a little tight for the 5 of us, especially once the sofa was made into a bed. Beds seemed higher off the floor than normal and were not extremely comfortable. My husband and I were both sore after the 2 night stay. The kids did have a good time though and that was worth it for us.

Great hotel/ water park for the price.Posted Mar 15, 2016
Other than the dbag water park Manager who was more interested in his pony tail, making basket ball shots, flirting with women and his lame tattoos on his arms it was fun. We have been to other water parks and this one by far lacked the professional life guarding so watch your kids close. For the price compared to other close by hotel / water parks it was worth it.
Comment from Hotel Management

I just wanted to drop you a personal note to thank you for taking the time to do our survey and for being our guest. We are a small family owned hotel and your patronage is very much appreciated. As a former pool supervisor I'm sure you've seen and heard the entire range of comments regarding lifeguards, It's a much tougher job than people realize. I share your concern about the conditions you witnessed, especially the ball hitting your child, that's unacceptable and will be discussed. It's important you know, and I'm being 100% honest, that this is the first negative comment all season regarding the water park supervisor. In fact I have many, many comments on how outgoing and friendly he is and how much the kids love him. Please know that I respect your comments and that each and every comment is seen by the entire staff. I do apologize for not living up to your expectations and hope at some point you can return. Thank you for staying with us, I hope you can return soon. Mark

Great place to take kids!Posted Dec 15, 2015 on Hotels
We stayed 1 night with our 2 and 5 year old. The room, a king suite, was very spacious for us. The kids loved the pool, and had a blast. Front desk staff was amazing! The only thing to say about this stay, is that you can tell the pool structures, kiddie slides, are used a lot. Like any piece of equipment, they are beginning to show their age. Thank you for a great weekend!
