The waterpark was just the pool and a small lazy river. The actual waterslides were closed and all extra pool activities had been removed. Good for very small children only. Hotel was nice enough but clearly understaffed as the hallways were lined with trash and linen bags for most of the day. Line at front desk was always super long. Rooms were not sound proofed at all and we had a noisy family next door so we did not get a good night sleep at all. No breakfast available.

Please do not stay here and do not book through another service like orbitz. We got lucky and were able to transfer to another much cleaner hotel for less money but I lost money by booking through orbitz. We looked at 3 different rooms before we’d had enough. There were ripped bedskirts, super large stains on comforters, mouse turds everywhere, counters you could tell hadn’t been cleaned in forever, food on sheets, it was a nightmare. Luckily we were finally able to move hotels with the managers permission and the only way that happened was because they had no housekeeper that could come clean the room. I will never go here again or recommend to anyone. They also have no plans of reopening the water slides the manager said for those of you who are looking for those as part of your “water park” experience.

Pool not open

Staff was nice and helpful. Carts were never available when needed. Needs improvement in cleanliness.

The room was nice and clean, the location is nice and being on the water is great.

Overall we were very disappointed with our stay. The property was not well maintained. The waterslides and hot tub were closed because the ceiling was caving in. There were dead bugs/moths stuck in all of the windows, the carpets in the common areas/hallways were dirty, there was a used bandaide that sat next to the pool for 4 days, some used rubber gloves sat in the hallway for 2 days, there were no pool towels for 2 days. When we checked out the person at the front desk was on her phone and didnt acknowledge us for about 5min. The "free" wifi was terrible in the lobby and nonexistent in our room. Our room was advertised as a "two bedroom suite". Maybe it was my misunderstanding but it was one long room with a bed at one side and two beds at the other...definitely not 2 rooms. The only pleasant thing I can say is the woman who checked us in was very friendly and helpful.

I was very disappointed with this trip. The internet service was horrible, Breakfast is supposed to be included in the price of the room, but instead had to go out and pay for breakfast and got no discount on the room for not having breakfast. There was no maid service, which is also supposed to be included in the price of the rooms in which again was not discounted for. The waterpark was only half open in which there was also no discounted price for this. There was food left in the drawers from the previous occupants. Very unimpressed with my stay.

The best thing was the breakfast and the view of the property. The worst was the decoration, smell of the property, and out of date property.

The indoor pool was very nice. Especially the waterslides for my 4 year old.

There was nothing to like about this hotel besides the fact that they have an indoor waterpark and are at the beach front. Dirty and smelly place. Lobby, hallways and even rooms smell bad. They advertise having microwave which isn't present. The booking confirmation gave me checking time of 3 but they told me at the desk to wait until 4. Not only that, they were rude and unprofessional. When I asked to talk to the manager, he was extremely rude and basically said that he "overrides" whatever was mentioned in my booking without giving any explanation. Worst customer service I have ever seen. Rude front desk staff esp the lady and extremely rude manager. Will never go there again and will advise people to save their money and avoid having such a negative experience.

It's on the lake, bu they have a terrible seagull problem, bird poop everywhere, no fire pits. Front desk was surly and seemed to be inconvenienced by my checking in. Rooms were not clean, coffee pot was not cleaned out, desk had coffee stains, no lobby bathrooms, no food.

Smell, stinky, room not clean dusty breakfast frozen food

Poor service. The room was provided an hour after check in.

Overall it was a great hotel... the views were amazing.

Nice waterpark feature, will stay again. Decent breakfast helped with cost.

The room was told to have microwave but it didn't. Water park is big plus.
