My family and I were invited to a wedding of a long time family friend. They booked the Medows for their wedding reception so they reserved some rooms at the Adventureland Inn for guests to stay. We arrived around three and were checked into our room right away. They gave us a map of the hotel (which we would need)... More

After reading reviews on this hotel, I was a bit nervous but I have to tell you - we loved every minute of it! From talking with the staff on the phone to our total weekend stay, everyone and everything was great!! Our room, the pools, the resturant and everything connected with the Adventureland Inn was as clean as could... More

Stay at one of the newer hotels across the street and pay half of what you pay for the Adventureland Inn. For $150 we had a room with mold on the air conditioning unit and rust on the doors. While the pool areas are nice, this hotel has not been kept up and is not worth the premium price you... More

The hotel was nice, BUT it was expensive, they do have a buffett for about ten bucks, and the food is just as bad as the park's. My kids had fun! Im glad there will be a water resort at the park now cause I probly wont go back to the inn.

The staff at the front desk were very nice. The hotel has had some updating with new comforters. The rooms are good-sized and most have a balcony or porch with sliding glass doors and a nice view of one of the pools. There was a small frig in the sink area which was separate from tub/toilet and a second sink.... More

I find it very frustrating that for the rate we paid for the room, we did not find our stay satisfactory. The first problem we encountered was standing in line for over an hour to get checked in. I travel quite a bit and have never had to wait that long to check into hotels in larger cities. We found... More

Had a business meeting scheduled here so was forced to stay in the hotel. Definitely not ideal for the business traveler. It was very noisy due to the indoor pool area.

We had two adults and 3 kids in our party. We booked a poolside suite and arrived at the hotel early at about 1 pm and they had a room ready for us. The pools are wonderful and the kids really enjoy themselves and it's so nice to go right from your room and its just steps to the pool.... More

Looking for indoor fun in the winter? This is NOT the place for you if you have any sort of values for your family or expectations of a great family get away. We booked our room directly with the hotel. They were polite and curteous- and that's where out positive experience ends. Issues during our stay: Room Temperature The room... More
