Below Average Family Getaway

The room was fine. Included waterparks. Two out of three waterparks were fine. One seemed dirty. Not much of a beach. Breakfast was very difficult. Too many people there in order to access food and watch my little ones.

Decent for the price

It is a cheap hotel and did the job well. The lake front view was nice, the beach was okay. The hotel by no means was beautiful, pretty much building on top of building because it was crammed into a small lot of land. The pool seemed like a decent size though we didn't swim in it. The "water park" was just a splash pad for kids, no slides, nothing decorative. The jacuzzi was really big but wasn't heated up enough to really feel warm. We got wristbands to go to another hotel about a block down to get into their water park which we also didn't go to but looked much better for kids. For breakfast, we had to walk next door to the sister hotel to eat. It's kind of awkward walking across the parking lot in just your pajamas and sharing breakfast with the other hotel. The food was good, but it was so busy there that the staff had a hard time keeping up on serving the food. The room was just a room with beds and a tv, nothing special even though we got the suite. I think the suite just gave us a flat screen tv rather than a box tv. Overall, not a bad place to stay if you just need it to sleep. The center of town is very close so you don't have to drive too far to get to where you need

Run down

Great location but our room was on the side building and looked very dated. Small room. Dirty carpet. Bad breakfast and sad indoor water park. Glorified sprinklers. Beach was beautiful but will not stay at this one again. Disappointed.

About what I was expecting

This hotel was fine for what we needed it for. Although the waterpark in the name is misleading, I would call that a splash pad. The good thing is that they give you access to two other hotel water parks when you check in.

Grossly overpriced

Given "suite" at last minute reservation. Good free breakfast at motel next door. Free waterpark passes at motel three doors down. Nice view of Lake Huron. Three lamps didn't work, room worn and overpriced.

False advertising

My trip was an overnight with my 16 yet old grandson and a cousin. They were looking forward to what was described as the Arcade. It should have been listed as "Archatic". Games were outdated and only 2 of 4 were in working order. Also advertised the Lazy River, consists of a large hot tub with a jet in the middle to spray without any tubes. The weight room , arcade and breakfast bar were located at another hotel next door to ours which meant leaving the property and walking to another location. Not very convenient .
