The park was ok. Room was missing coffee pot pieces, trash bags. It took 4 hours to receive the pack and play we reserved. Greatly understaffed and on employee in the office was wearing wind pants. Great potential if someone with a business mind was running the show. Litter all over the exterior of the building. Some external key card... More

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

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.

As far as a property being up to Marriott standards, not really. But still Very Very Nice ! Clean with lots of value if you are going to use the water park with the family. 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
