We met friends here for a night of fun for the kids in the water park. The rooms we stayed in were updated, spacious and comfortable. The continental breakfast included scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy and make your own waffles, along with a wonderful fresh fruit salad. Surfari Joe's water park was just okay. The hot tub was out of... More

Stayed one night with family. Wife and I and 6 and 7 year old little girls. Got a room with 2 queens and passes to the water park. The room and bathrooms were clean, and the bed was comfortable, even if it was a little on the firm side. Breakfast was right on par with what to expect from Fairfield.... More

Rented 3 rooms for family coming in out of town. Friend had shoes and cell phone stolen from water park, was told by a staff member that security cameras went down a couple months ago and never replaced. So HUGE negative on that, hopefully get that updated asap.. Charged my credit card 22.00 more per room than what my bill... More

We had an excellent stay. The front desk staff was very friendly and we were even greeted by the manager. Especially helpful and friendly was Ann at the morning breakfast. The waterpark was also a lot of fun for the kids. I expect that we will come back to this location again someday.

Complementary breakfast on the main floor off the lobby area. Very good, waffles, bacon, eggs,cereal, bagels, pastries, juices, milk, coffee. Hotel staff is extremely friendly... More

My family has stayed here about 5 times in the last year. Every time we stay here we are treated great. The family suites are clean fresh and huge. The waterpark is fantastic and the life guards are very attentive and friendly. The lady who was the waitress at the restaurant was very friendly and did a great job. Andrew... More
