Our family recently stayed at Adventureland Inn to go to Adventureland Park right "next door" to the hotel. We have stayed there in the past and have tried a few of the other hotels in the area, but this year we were very impressed with the changes that have been made to the hotel. In the past, we came to... More

Just returned from Adventureland Inn... Booked here because it was close to Adventureland theme park which was nice. The shuttle takes you over to the park which is very nice. The Bad thing is the hotel staff- at the front desk were all rude and I think the company needs to send them to a class on how to treat... More

We just got back from our trip to Adventureland and we almost didn’t go at all… due to the awful smell in our room. Horrible! And guess what? It was booked full so we couldn’t get another room. Very poor upkeep at this hotel. We had to go to the local target to get some air fresheners and some fabreeze... More

Today is 7/29/08 and our family, along with another family, made reservations for two pool side rooms on 1/10/08. Today we called to confirm and were told we only had one room booked. I spoke with the manager Joe Polanski and he was very rude! Another Family member made a reservation on Jan 10 and canceled it the very next... More

My family spent two nites here along with another family. The main reason for staying here was for its proximity to the Adventureland Amusement Park (see seperate review) and to use the free shuttle from the hotel to the park. We have stayed at this hotel several times over the past 7 years but did not stay here last year.... More

The kids had a blast in the two hotel pool areas, with a variety of slides, bubbles, hot tubs & swimming areas. Both were steps from the door of our room. This made things a little loud, at pool opening time, but nothing that a family with kids isn't used to already. The sliding roofs on both pools were especially... More

We had a terrific stay at Adventureland Inn! I must admit, after reading some of the negative reviews, I was a bit worried, but once we arrived, all that fear vanished! First of all, the room we stayed in was a standard room on the first floor. Must have been recently remodeled. Nice comfy beds, which is unusual in motels,... More

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
