Shower had remains of the previous tenants (no problem I cleaned it real quick), clock off 32 minutes (no biggie), WI-Fi down (who cares we aren't here for that), but when I am exhausted and pull back the tightly folded covers and find a big damp urine stain - I am not fine. I am now grossed out. I expected... More

My husband and I stayed in Big Splash Adventure hotel with our 2 boys (6yrs and 3 yrs). Our hotel room was clean and basic. It would have been nice to have a refrigerator to keep our snacks but our cooler worked fine. Our boys loved the Buccaneer Bay - it was perfect for their ages. The waterpark was a... More

We brought our 6 and 8 year old granddaughters here last week. Im sure you get tired of being compared to Great Wolf, but, as we have been to 3 Great Wolf Lodges, this was 1/2 the park at 3/4 the price. Check in was fast and most everyone we encountered was friendly. Rooms were clean, Hotel was clean. Food... More

Room was mediocre. It was clean, but had sort of a mildew smell, which is probably common with a waterpark theme. The hallways was the same way. We usually don't try hotel restaurants, but we did this time and did we NOT like it. Food at the Boatyard was mediocre at the best. The floors in the food area was... More

Dear Trip Advisor Reviewer, Thank you for your recent review. I'm sorry to hear that our Food and Beverage department did a poor job during your stay. Breakfast does tend to get a little crazy which could be why it was still a little messy during your dining experience. This is not an excuse as we strive to create a... More

We stayed over the weekend and we were disappointed with the drive to the desination versus the perks at the destination. Let's begin with the room. We booked with the "$159.00/per night" special and upgraded our room to the Suite. Overall the room was clean and had granite and what looked like cherry cabinets. The bathrooms had an awkward layout.... More

The hotel was okay. Bathrooms are a little awkward. Beds need some help and so do the comforters. Food was mediocre at best with amazing french toast sticks. Too many people in waterpark and they should not give daypasses. I am not sure that any other waterpark does that. Kind of ruined our experience. Overall was mediocre

Dear Trip Advisor Reviewer, Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear that you were a little dissatisfied. We don't have comforters on our beds. Comforters tend to go unwashed by most hotels. Therefore we choose to put blankets on our beds that are easy to be washed. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the French... More

Room was very nice! Water park was clean! Food was very good alittle pricey but where isn't it! Lifeguard staff was absolutely terrible! 3 different lifeguards watched 5 to 6 boys run off side of pool and hang on net and rim of goal for at least a hour! Very lazy and I attentive!

We stayed here a couple of times while skiing at Paoli. It's relatively new and nice, and an easy drive to Paoli Peaks. The indoor water park is not huge, but it is perfect for kids. If you need a break from skiing, it's a perfect alternative. The hot breakfast buffet is also a nice perk. It's great to have... More

Rooms were clean and the service was good. The kids had a great time in the water park. A cool unique feature is the retractable roof over the water park. Plenty for the kids to do. The kids prefer Great Wolfe as a destination, but if you are staying local, give this place a try. Also, they had a great... More
