We should have cancelled and walked away when we arrived and saw a kid puking outside. The facility is very dirty. The kids enjoyed the water slides, but there are not enough tubes for everyone so you have to constantly stand around and wait to get one from someone. The rooms are noisy and uncomfortable. If you are going to... More

We are a family of five which include twin 4yr olds and a 3yr old. We were very skeptical after reading some of the reviews, but thankfully we tried this place. It's amazing! Our room was ready at check in (we arrived at 12:30pm) and it was extremely spacious. Our room had 2 sets of bunk beds which was semi-private... More

First, let me start by saying this was the 3rd time we have visited the big splash water park and hotel. (my daughter likes to take her friends for her birthday, it is close, and somewhat affordable) This will be the last time we visit...

My wife and I stayed in Big Splash Adventure hotel with our 3 girls (11yrs 10yrs and 7 yrs). Our hotel room was clean and basic. What it didn't lack was bugs. We counted no fewer than 25 circulating on the walls and ceiling. We notified the front desk...they offered to send housekeeping to vacuum them up. We were told... More

Dear Trip Advisor Reviewer, Thank you for your recent review. Ladybugs do tend to be an issue this time of year. Unfortunately there is not much you can do to prevent/get rid of ladybugs except by vacuuming them up. We do apologize that you had some in your room. We do have an exterminator that frequents our facility to treat... More

The room smelled like mildew. The heater did not work and they did not have a maintenance person to fix it and they asked us to switch rooms at 10 pm with our children sleeping. The staff at the restaurant was rude. The food quality was very poor. We shared our experience with management and they only gave us a... More

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

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

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
