We visited here for two nights. We had a great time. Check in took a bit but the staff was friendly and the the process smooth. The room was clean and as expected. The waterpark is great! There are three tube slides and two body slides - all fun and our 12 and 8 year olds enjoyed them all. The... More

We booked a room here because we were getting a good deal through our daughters softball team. When I called to make the reservation I requested Saturday night. That was fine, I received a confirmation e-mail with that date. A week before our trip we decided we wanted to stay Friday night as well. When I called to see if... More

We stayed one night with our two girls - 10 and 8 year olds. They had fun. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms met our needs. We had wifi in our rooms although it at times was very slow. It was nice that we had a refrigerator. I liked that KLC has a system where everything works off... More

We took our daughter, ages 6 & 2, here. We had a blast! There was so much to do for all of us at the watermark. My girls enjoyed the kid activities, crafts and cookie decorating. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The food prices in the restaurants were very reasonable. We will definitely return.

My wife found a coupon deal for this place so she decided we were going to take the 10yr gandbaby there for here birthday with her friend. It was an overnight adventure and fun times were had by all.

This property could be perfect. They have all the bells and whistles. Except they advertise that each room has Wifi which is NOT the case. In this day and age it is not acceptable to not have internet in the room. Especially when you advertise as such. Many many people rely on the web for their job skills. I pick... More
