I communicated to him that I had a morning tee time, and that I wanted a late check-out the following day, so I could return to the room around noon to pack up and leave. Regular... More

We have stayed here many time over the last couple of years, yet we always seem to find something new to do with our grandson. There have been times when our visits were several months apart & the staff still remembered his name, other than having to pay to stay it is like going to visit distant family.

The room and amenities were great- my kids loved the water slides! I was stationed in Germany and loved my stay here- brought back memories. Great town also! The beds and linens were very comfortable and high quality. The architecture of the facility was outstanding.
