This hotel was a huge disappointment. From having lived near this hotel for 30+ years, I know it was popular back in its heyday. Now, it is just dated and overpriced. We have stayed in hundreds of hotels that were cheaper and nicer. Most of them being by the beach, where you would expect to pay more. I expect to overpay for hotel food, but has this place seen itself? You can't charge those prices and look rundown. They wanted $25+ for a breakfast where they also charge $5 delivery to room and 24% for tip. Also, You can not bring food to the water park either. My kids were kicked out for snacking on food they brought! Then upon trying to return to the pool after they finished snacking, they checked my bag and found an unopened box of microwave popcorn from our trip in which they confiscated. Ummmm.... Why? It's not like I can make the popcorn without a microwave?!?! It's not that you are not allowed to eat in the pool area, but because they charge $20 for nachos and $16 for a burger. Sorry kids, you can not bring a snack. Oh, and the waterpark is not worth it. The chairs were filthy and damaged, and the kids were entertained for an hour. Do yourself a favor and go to the hotels in Scottsdale where their water parks are better, the area is nicer, the food is better, and you get your money's worth.
