I took my daughter and her friend here for 2 days over spring break. This was our first time visiting. The first day of our visit, was not busy at all and the girls really enjoyed the waterpark and the slides. The bathrooms in the waterpark were pretty icky - wear your flip flops or water shoes for sure. There... More

This was a very nice place to stay. It was a very friendly and cozy place to stay and take the kids. They really enjoyed the water park and children activities. All staff and waitstaff were more than friendly. With the relaxed and open atmosphere coupled with the hospitality I would recommend to anyone looking for a nice family weekend.... More

This is a fantastic place for an affordable family vacation! The horseback riding and water park are great for kids and the golf is fantastic. Cabins have that rustic feeling with all of the amenities we needed. I will return for a girls weekend soon!

We stayed for 2 nights in a cabin here for a last-minute Spring Break getaway, and I'm a bit mixed about this place. The staff was all very friendly from check-in to cleaning crew to arcade dude, but with the exception of the lifeguards, they were very under-staffed. The bar/food order place had one very swamped person to take orders... More

Where do I start? Our cabin was not ready until almost 3 hours after it was "guaranteed" to be ready. There were cigarette butts everywhere on the ground, very disgusting! The next day I saw the cleaning guy take almost 4 hours to clean the cabin across from us, taking numerous smoke breaks and flinging his butts all over, even... More

Just arriving home after a one night stay in the Thoroughbred Suites. From start to finish, it was a disappointment. I wished I would have stuck to Great Wolf Lodge. Room: spacious, clean. Be prepared to hear your neighbors at all hours. Water park: this was a joke. Getting from your room to the water park is an adventure in... More

After hearing great things about the Double JJ Ranch from several friends, we thought we would give it a try. So many disappointments, I am not sure where to start. We arrived just after the check-in time and with only one other family ahead of us we had to wait 20 minutes prior to being helped. No wonder why, the... More
