Family Spring Break

We had a great time! The water park was perfect for our three year olds and baby. The lazy-river isn't so lazy--keep an eye on you young ones; they can get swept away. . My hubby and I had a fun ride down one water slide. We came on a Saturday afternoon and the water park was PACKED, but by late afternoon, had thinned out. Sunday it was less-packed. The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly. Just wish it had a continental breakfast because we like those ;). Great priced pizza place right next door. Good pizza. Thinking about booking our stay for next year!

Nice Hotel, Great Waterpark

Our suite was clean, spacious and nicely appointed for a family of four. Walls are a bit thin as we could hear loud talk from our neighbours. Water Park was fantastic and admission was included with our stay. Target and Denny's were both nearby.

Hotel stay

The staff was super friendly and helpful. The water park was great fun for the kids, but was only open on the weekends so we didn't use it as much as we would have liked to. Wish we had known that. The rooms were not very sound proof...an adjoining room ran their tv all night and we had to listen to it as well. The rooms were clean and nice. We would probably go back but not if the water park was closed.

Great hotel & waterpark

Great stay at this hotel (Mon-Tues after Easter) and pretty quiet. Rooms were well kept, almost new condition, spacious double queen room. Did not eat in the hotel restaurant. We enjoyed the waterpark, which was busy but not overcrowded, I could see how it probably would be on the weekends! Plenty of attentive lifeguards, plenty of towels. For an overnight stay, there was lots for our kids (5 and 7) to do. They loved the waterpark!

We walked across the parking lot to Rockwood Grill for dinner, which was good! Pasta, sandwiches, kids meals, nice bar & patio area. Theme is trains, nicely decorated in dark wood. Decent beer & wine list.

Great Trip .. Great Time .. Great Price

The hotel was in great shape ... We stayed in the King Kids suite which has 3 rooms. Great price for such a nice room. The water park was a blast!!! Kids eat free in the hotel restaurant!!! The hotel is a big family get away spot and was kinda of noisy. We are planning on going back again next year.

2nd time around

1st time we were on the first floor it was ok we had some trouble trying to dial out on the phone and accidently called 911 a couple of times the staff at the desk became quite rude on the phone with us for an honest mistake. This time we were on the 2nd floor and even though it was quite nice the last night the room above us was really loud with people running and jumping in the hallways till early morning.
