Walking into the room it smelled (and I can hardly smell). The bathroom had handprints on the walls and towels smelled like mold. When I went to crawl into bed I was poked by springs every time I turned, WORST beds ever. On top of the low grade mattress the sheets smelled like mold. There were sounds of children running...

I stayed at the Arrowwood Lodge with family for two nights in summer of 2015 for a wedding that also took place at the hotel. Our family had the split queen room which in concept is made for families to allow a little bit of extra privacy without a full suite. The room design and amenities just don't quite work,... More

I loved the split queen room at this hotel! It gave us a small amount of privacy from our son without breaking the bank. The waterpark is small, but a lot of fun. There is something for kids of every age here. We did do an early check-in, but ended up waiting for our room until regular check-in time. The... More

Thank you for your wonderful review of our facility. It is nice to hear that we met or exceeded your expectations in many areas of the hotel. The split rooms are great for those families with older children or who are traveling with friends since it does afford for a little more privacy than a conventional hotel room. Thank you... More

So wanted to like this place...beds very uncomfortable, bathroom was dirty. Restaurant ran out of things. We had terrible service and no one was there. Told check out about uncomfortable beds "oh well they are only two years old"... Really??? We were very nice about it but not the correct response from front desk. Walls paper thin.

Clean hotel with nice atmosphere and nice room. Liked layout of our double queen bed suite with wall separating entryway. However very noisy at night and in morning and could hear everything outside our room, even the conversations. Thought room was spacious. Bathroom could really use some sort of fan. Liked the arcade and lots to do but absolutely no... More

I stayed here while on a business trip to the area. The room was nice and spacious. As I was on a business trip, I was a bit concerned if there would be too much noise from the families attending the on-site water park. I did not hear a peep from any. It also looks to be a good place... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in April this year. The hotel was was nicely decorated and clean. The rooms were large and comfortable. It was also close to the community college we were visiting with our son. We enjoyed the attached restaurant. Inga was delightful!!

We really enjoyed our trip to Arrowwood. I could not decide which type of room to get, so I called and asked for assistance. The room setup we got was just right for our family. The kids loved the waterpark, and by going in April it was not very busy. The lobby area is very pretty, and we enjoyed the... More

We stayed the weekend with 4 total adults and 1 kid, and immediately upon check-in they upgraded us to a nice spacious loft suite. This was great because that gave us a extra bed and as 4 single ladies we each got our own bed. The waterpark is nice and although not all lifeguards have the same dedication, a few... More
