3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here this past week and was not impressed. Check in is roped off lines like an amusement park although they did move quickly. Elevators in the lobby are broke leaving long waits to get carts of your belongings to your room. Workers told us it's been broken for several months. One employee stated it has never worked since she... More

We enjoyed GWL very much. My husband and I were able to enjoy the sunshine while the kids played. Invest the $30 per kid for the magiqwest- totally worth it as it takes about 8 hours to complete. There are great restaurants nearby in the Legends. We did TRex and Yardhouse and my kids loved TRex. The breakfast buffet in... More

We found the indoor and outdoor water areas to be great. Inside there is a shallow area with water features and some smaller slides. There is a huge playground structure with cargo nets, bridges, water guns and water features throughout as you climb. At the top there are 2 slides. Seperate from this there are 3 more slides that you... More

My husband, myself and our 2 children stayed here this past weekend. Our children are ages 3.5 and 6. They have never had so much fun. They enjoyed everything about the water park and outdoor pool. The lifeguards were on point the whole time. I could tell that safety was a their priority. The only downside was the tears they... More

This was a great place to bring our grandkids for 1 night and all day. The room was wonderful... but we didn't spend much time there. The waterpark was good...but lines for the slides were really long at times....had to keep watching for short lines and then rush to get there...but the slides were a lot of fun. I wouldn't... More

My husband and I stayed here with our two kids who are 3yrs and 1yr old on a whim. We were extremely happy that there was still room availability and the clerks even gave us a choice of what floor we wanted. We stayed on the first floor where the waterpark entrance. It was actually very quiet most of the... More

Cold!!! They advertise that the water park is kept at a balmy 84 degrees. They lie! The outside temp during our stay was unseasonably cool. It was in the middle 70's. The staff in the water park area kept leaving the doors, 4 of them, open. This made for a 75 degree wind tunnel through the water park. We and... More

Had my daughter's 8 year old birthday party here and it was a blast for young and old. I knocked off one star only because of the price of the hotel. I would gladly have paid 200-250 for the room so I will wait for a Groupon next time since they tend to be in that price range. But overall,... More

This place is all about the water park and is geared toward the child's experience. My kids loved the water park. They never wanted to leave. It is most suitable for kids from 2 to 10 or 11 in my opinion. I was impressed at how many lifeguards were covering the different areas. And they seemed to take their jobs... More

It is very clean, friendly helpful staff,and an enjoyable stay for the whole family. Multiple activities are available. My son lost his glasses in the slide, and the staff took the trouble to find them and bring them to us. Commendable!
