Great water park, wish it had a splash pad

Posted Sep 19, 2016
Pros: Staff was very nice, and water park was fun.
Cons: Could use a splash pad, and the couch was very uncomfortable.
Location: The Brown Bag was within walking distance, and was great for breakfast.
Could use some updates, things were a little dated (couches especially were outdated and uncomfortable). Water park was nice, but since it was the off season, it was disappointing that one of the restaurants was closed and the water park closed early.

Lazy River Ranch is so lazy - it doesn't move

Posted Aug 30, 2016
Wanted a quick getaway from Seattle with the kids, thought the water park would be a hit. But any kids who have been to a water park built in the last ten years will be severely disappointed. The park is smaller than it appears in the photos, and there does not appear to be any jets moving the water. They have to dredge themselves along at great effort. Oh, and the long walk through the parking lot to get there? Painful in the 100 degree heat radiating from the shade-free concrete. The water slide lacks volume so they get stuck, which is also the word to describe your dining options - you are stuck with basically one restaurant, Ricos. It's not very good but really the only sit-down option on the resort. Ricos also provides the in-room dining option. Unfortunately, there do not appear to be any close options outside of the resort either - you're stuck with subpar food and $90/night bills for a family of four not including drinks. Last bit - the desert has lots of bugs, you can expect little ones in your room. We experienced the same problem in Hilton's Hawaiian properties, but hey, it's Hawaii and the views compensate for it. But in North Central Phoenix? Not so much. Pay extra for a more upgrade resort and you won't regret it.

Pros: The STAFF. Absolutely amazing. They made up for absolutely ANYTHING else that wasn't just right! The staff earned the ratings! Great people!
Cons: Close Hole in the Wall restaurant and turn it over to someone who knows quality food and service! Sadly, they provide the pool food service too!
Location: Good location, right off one of the main freeway's, so easy to get too. The aqua park is great. Not really a lot to do nearby.
I usually consider the facilities heavily when rating a hotel, but I let them go this time. This hotel was nice and great location, despite that its age is showing in the rooms, non-working fountains, the aqua park needing a fresh paint job. Some of our experiences were a little frustrating and avoidable: we couldn't get into our room numerous times # 1443. A staff member told us they always had problems with this ONE room (Mgr: put a note so that at check in you could simply tell the guest about the door! ),our smoke alarm battery went off at 1:30 AM (Mgr: schedule regular maintenance changes of batteries!). 1 of the 2 restaurants (Hole in the Wall) should be closed. Horrible food and service. Rico's staff told us they rec'd complaints on them regularly. Totally substandard for a Hilton. Turn it over to the Rico's Mgr and get it fixed plus you'd make more $$ on your pool food sales by fixing the food quality too! But, for the 1st time in 30 yrs I heard the words I was taught when training at a hotel "We never tell our guest no". I would rate ALL the staff at a 10 vs a 5! The staff was beyond amazing! They made up for everything! David in concierge, Andrea and Nikki in Ricos! It was a pleasure! Rico's food is literally some of the best food we have ever eaten! Fresh, amazing variety. We ate there every meal! Service - THE BEST! It was great to see a hotel that still understands that service is KING! ANY request, was done ASAP! I'd go back again in a minute!

Pros: Nice facilities, Eddy helped us to room and did his best to make things better, he is a good employee
Cons: 1. Charge the rate advertised. 2. Disclose the fact that under construction
Found after arrival that hotel undergoing construction resulting in no parking, long walk to room, carried luggage up three floors (we are in 70s). Decided on hotel because of special rate published by expedia, not the rate we paid (actual was nearly double).

Fun family getaway for the price. The pool areas are a little bit over crowded. The onsite restaurant has excellent American food!

The door to our room was very hard to shut and could potentially hurt someone. The pools were excellent and the bed is comfortable. Very good staff at the pools.
