Good Stay-Some issues
My stay was a quick overnight stay so I could attend my son's state bowling meet the following day. The hotel was clean and the room was very nice. Only complaints. We stayed in Room 271. No exhaust in the bathroom, there were no washcloths so I called down to the front desk. They said they would bring them to the room. However, we never got them. The bed was a little too firm and they could be updated. The pillows were all very flat and I would recommend replacing them with a better variety of fluffier pillows. We could not keep the air conditioning kicked on and the room was a little stuffy. There was an indoor water park that was very noisy so I booked my room non-pool side which helped. There were boys running up and down the halls that evening slapping the doors. I called the front desk and it didn't happen any further. Overall for a one night stay the hotel, room were very nice, met my needs, except for no washcloths.

Great family getaway
What a great place to stay with Family. We had a poolside room that was close to the tiki bar. Great kids pool and perfect for kids 3-6 years old.

Pool not warm enough
The heater in the room was outdated and kept us up and our toddler boys most of the night. The pool was not warm enough for little kids, our boys could only swim for an hour and there lips were purple. The pool didn't open till 9am on Saturday and they should know that little kids wake up early and there was nothing for them to do.

Good3.0 / 5
OK.
Room had no working phone. Told front desk and they say, ya, we know about that. After a pregnant pause, they said that they were working on it for awhile, several rooms have that issue. Went to the pool. It was really cold for the 7+9 year olds. It was jammed packed..hard to get any swim space. If the this the only pool oasis in the area, I can understand why it is so busy, but just a heads up. Had some of the pizza, it is exactly like chuck e cheeses. Ok. The bed was the worst part. It was parabolic and uncomfortable, had a bad night a sleep. Next morning, I hadn't checked it out ahead, but was surprised a basic continental breakfast wasn't included. All in all a blah experience.
