Buckeye game for the win! Visiting family and friends

For the price we paid we were very disappointed. The gift shop was way overpriced. Walt Disney World has a cheaper gift/ snack shop. Some of the staff were not friendly at all. We had to go back to the desk because they gave us the wrong room number. The poor lady was scared to death asking us what we were doing at her door. My review is simple to help your business and hopefully improve these issues.

The hotel was easy to find just off the freeway. Although we didn't get to try the water sports in the off-season, we saw the water tubes from the freeway and they looked like fun. The buffet was very nice and the staff was very accommodating.

I've had waaaaay better experiences... Unexpected expenses every time I turned around!!!

I stayed in this hotel about 6 years ago and it has lost its luster. I remember being impressed 6 years ago. I was not impressed this time. The rooms have fallen in disrepair, the bathrooms have not been updated. The tub was nasty and the room was dim. Its a great concept but my fear is that the water park reflects the cleanliness of the room. We did not visit the water park based on the condition of the room we stayed in. We did enjoy the bunk beds in the room which the kids liked. Overall, a decent place to stay but nothing that would get us to stay there again.

This had to be the worst HOTEL ever! The room smelled, the air didn't work. We came from a concert and there was way to get food at the bar. I don't recommend this place, unless you are looking for a place to laid your head other than a parking lot

The waterpark is great! they had a lot of lifeguards to mantain control and keep the children safe. My 12 year old and 6 year old grand children had a ball. The Hotel staff were all excellent and very helpful. The only problems i had were minor and I did not expect them in this type of a Hotel. The Sofa bed was not made at any time and we had to request the bedding for it. The sink had a slight drip that would not dtop. The towel rack was bent and would fall when you took a towel off it. Other than the few minor problems we enjoyed ourselves and will go back again.

rooms not real clean, times of the water park suck, and the staff is rude. also i dont think te price for a room and then the price to get into the water slides where worth the money

Hair in tub, floor, sink on towels all over the bathroom  Free hbo didn't work  Refrigerator did not work very well  For over $100 no remote  Couldn't connect to free wifi No free breakfast

[...]n the noise in the halls carries and made sleeping difficult for all in the room even those who usually are not disturb by noise. I would also have liked to see a book of some kind in the room with menu's from the restaurants and different sites in the local community. All in all my husband and I would rather have spent more and stayed closer to my older son then stay here again.

We had the Log Cabin Bunkbed room and it was great for our family. The two younger children thought the log cabin bunkbeds were GREAT. The room as clean.

up to expectations
