    spent only 1 night. Kids had fun in the water park. I was disappointed with the water park itself-old, outdated. Front desk staff extremely nice.

    Property was an amazing place to stay. I got an excellent deal for the room and the kids really loved the water park. The staff was very kind to us. We will definitely be trying to come back!

    No weekday pool fun. Dirty. Lumpy mattresses

    This may have been a nice resort once upon a time, but it has fallen into disrepair, is dirty, and the fun stuff in the pool area isn't available on weekdays. Of particular concern were the terrible soft lumpy mattresses. Everyone in our party complained about a bad night's sleep because of the soft lumpy mattresses and pillows.
