Room was clean/comfortable with beautiful view. Waterpark was very fun but run down. Most of the inner tubes were flat/deflated. Not enough chairs/tables - parents had to stand or sit on floor. Felt like piles of sand on lazy river and hot tub bottom. Arcade was pretty nice - most of the games worked.

Overall had a good experience at the Grand Harbor Resort. I visited during one of their spring break specials (which I recommend making use of their holiday deals). In my party, we had someone with arthritis so the bowling vouchers were not something we could use, they traded us extra arcade ones instead. The arcade is a very nice feature... More

This is always a fun place for the kiddos to go and be kids! Lifeguards, food & arcade on site. Many, many things for all ages to do here. We booked the party room once for our daughter's birthday. We brought in our own pizza, cake & drinks. There is also staff available to help you with the birthday party... More

Stayed several nights at this hotel. Great views of the river. The hotel is located right on the river walk. The nights I stayed in the hotel, there was live music right off the back deck area. The rooms themselves were OK, nothing special, but clean. The water park is good for kids, as all water parks are.

Stayed here for a quick girls getaway. Our room was spacious, and the location was cose enough for us to walk downtown to the bars. Dinner in the restaurant was good. We booked a package that included breakfast and a voucher for the slots in the nearby casino--this was all we needed for a great time!

I did not like having to pay $80 more for my second night for the waterpark that I had no intentions of using

This waterpark is perfect for children up to the age of 13 very comfortably without a parent having concern of child getting lost or concern of them being out of parent's sight. The water feature "bucket" was so neat. The kids loved it.

We stay here often. It has a fun water park for all ages. The rooms are nice, updated and clean. The restaurant/bar are good but not great. The only problem is the price. There are some cheaper rooms but the larger ones for families are outrageously priced most days of the year.
