We are always looking for new fun places to take our kids. We showed up at 8:30pm on Friday. We went up to our rooms and were VERY impressed with the overall appearance. Our room and my sisters rooms were so clean and very updated. Tile showers, granite countertops and balconies very nice!! We took the kids down to the... More

Took my kids to the water park on there $5 sundays and was discussed by the conditions of the water quality, equipment, and staff. The place looks very un-maintenance with green water and slime on the equipment. One of the slides had a big hole in it witch would severely hurt someone and instead of removing it, they simply put... More

Hello there and thank you for your time in posting a review of the waterpark on Tripadvisor! We are sorry to see that you did not feel the value of the $5 Sunday off season admission. It is true that a piece of one of the slides is broken, however, it is isolated with caution tape as you have mentioned.... More

We would go back because of the winter room prices. We'd make sure it wasn't before they shut down to change filters for the pool. The water was kept so hot that the kids couldn't stand to be in there. Room was a GREAT deal. Bought food in the hotel store that was outdated and still haven't gotten a refund... More

Sundays are just $5.00 per person, so we took my niece and nephew with us(10, 9, 8) for a couple of hours. Pros: warm water, fun lazy river and slides. Cons: very full, dirty water, few staff managing rowdy guests. All in all, for $5, it was a good couple of hours!

Our room was clean and everything was in working order. The room next to us did not go to sleep as early as we did since we had very young kids and we could hear everything they were doing. They were not being obnoxious or doing anything wrong, but that is about as loud as I have heard another room... More

We had a wonderful experience here. The water park was really nice for an indoor one, and we really enjoyed that. Our room was small suite sized, and we were really impressed with the size and the fact that we had a balcony. The front desk staff were really pleasant and helpful. We will definitely be staying here again!

If you're looking for peace & quiet, this is probably not the place for you. It is a family environment with lots of kids and plenty of noise! The hotel has a nice appearance on the surface but is in desperate need of repairs and maintenance. We stayed in a 3-bedroom suite with family. The layout is such that you... More

We stayed here four years ago and it was much nicer back then. The smell of chlorine from the water park permeates the place which makes walking to your room a not very pleasant experience. The rooms were nice but I'm glad we only stayed one night this time. If you can stand the screaming kids running up and down... More

My wife and I have five children, the oldest being 7 and the youngest a month shy of 2. The waterpark is the absolute perfect fit for our family. The deepest the water ever gets is 3 feet deep. Life jackets were available for our youngest three children who pretty much stayed in the 3-10 inch water kiddie area anyway.... More
