For the price, not impressive but ok

The hotel was pricey and over-staffed. As a result the occupancy was extremely low. Additionally, though I was there only for a two day business meeting, a spa fee applies, simply for it's existence. This is all fine for a five star hotel, but the rooms were not vacuumed, and the dishes were dirty from the previous occupants. This would be expected at a simple motel, but not the Grand Resort Spa.

Good time was had by all...

Choose this resort because of the pool/waterpark and our six-year-old certianly loved it. For an extra $15 my older son was able to bring one of his friends to the waterpark for the day, which wasn't bad. There was a smaller pool by our room that was open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. That was the only negative...people were in there from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. every day and it was noisy. Staff was great at the resort.

Not worth the money

Yes, there was alot missing. The person at the desk requested that I leave my credit card since I had paid on a traveling webiste. I correct his error by questioning him and he felt bad and decided to up grad me. I thought that was great, but little did i know his upgrade was actually a down grade. My hotel room was right behind the elevator shaft and all night long i could only hear the engine of the elevator and the noise it make when it stops on a floor. horribe!!!

$$

After you book with an online company, you have to pay a daily deposit of 30 dollars to use the water park, thats only open saturday and sunday, and the athletic club. this deposit should be based on usage. also they charge 15 a day for internet. common, even the travel lodge gives free internet!

Average hotel for above-average prices

The hotel was fine--the room was clean and nice--but they sure nickel-and-dime you: we had to pay a $30 "resort" fee, basically just to get to use the fitness facilities (which we didn't even want to use, as we were only there for about 18 hours, total). In their explanation of the $30 fee, they say it includes "in-suite morning coffee"--all this means is the usual set-up in any decent hotel of a tiny coffee maker in your room, with packets of grounds. That's what they call "in-suite morning coffee" and charge you, in part, $30 for! As well, you had to pay $15 a day to use the internet. This strikes me as outrageous, given how much your hotel room costs, in the first place, and then given that they make you pay a "resort fee" for facilities you very well might have no desire to use. So, pretty much, they charge you extra for all the things--gym, coffee grounds, and internet--that most decent hotels these days give you for free. The staff was fine, though the parking guy who met us at the front of the lobby was pretty rude, which didn't make us feel very welcome at all. In short, you can get much more for your money staying somewhere else.

Quiet, relaxing resort

The room was clean and quiet. I only used the hotel to rest and sleep. I only encountered the staff at check-in. Otherwise I did not see any other staff during the stay.

Great Staff

The staff were very friendly and helpful. I was there for a conference, and was stuck in the conference rooms all day. The hotel looked very nice by night however. I was booked for a King suite, of which they had none when I got there. I got 2 queen beds. With my head agains the head board, by feet still hung off the end (I'm only 6'1")..... bed wasnt too comfortable.

There is a mall within walking distance, several decent restaurants as well. I would recommend against room service. Its available only when the on sight restaurant is open anyway... and you end up paying way more to get it to your room.... way more!

Great veiw of the FREEWAY!!!

Disappointed in this resort. Room was very average. Our room faced the freeway so that was our veiw the whole weekend. I will not go back to this resort. I've had better rooms and better service at Embassy Suites and others and paid much less.
