Free breakfast subpar.. cheese omlette seemed to be made with cheeze wiz.

Nice place

The staff was good but could’ve been a little friendlier and quite a few of the arcade games weren’t working… lights were on but just kept taking credits from us.

When we checked in the person at the front was super friendly and casual even though you could tell by the line and ringing phones he was quite busy and working alone. The lady at night was very rude and had a scowl on her face the whole time and was very monotone. The pool was awesome and the hot tub. The arcade would’ve been nice to have and the blue slide but things happen beyond their control so overall it was totally worth it and will be doing it again over Christmas!

Price was too high.

The staff was very friendly. Rooms are very spacious and beds are comfortable. The water park was so fun

Nice hotel, good location. Didn’t use the water park but looked nice

NICE ROOMS - GREAT WATER PARK - CLEAN -HELPFUL STAFF

Came for and enjoyed the waterpark. Things went very well considering all the restrictions that need to be followed.

Nice water park for the family to go. Friendly staff with a snack bar in the pool area.

Clean nice rooms and friendly staff, breakfast had lots of choices.

Hotel room comes along with water park, game room and laser tag which is a good bonus to have a good time for kids and also for adults. Nearby zoo safari was amazing too as my daughter loved it and got to see so many varieties of bears. If you want to get away just for a weekend and chill. This is a great place to hangout.

Nothing stands out about hotel as being excellent, but it was fine. Fine for a room that cost over $500 for 2 night weekend but I get it was peak travel time. Plumbing seemed to be stretched as toilets didn't always flush and by Sunday odd smell in hallway. Perhaps if your family used water park, tiny water park, it was better value. Breakfast was nice with a variety. Staff very nice.

This was our first family vacation and we all had an amazing time. The hotel is central to all the activities that we chose to do this trip . There was something to keep everyone happy! We enjoyed the amenities and the awesome staff! We will be back again!
