We just stayed at this hotel last night for my son's birthday. The suite was nice and reasonably priced. A few complaints, though. When I called to make a reservation, I specifically asked how many water park passed we got with our room. The person on the phone put me on hold, and then come back to tell me it... More

My wife & I stayed here one night while we attended Rockwoods Jamfest on 8/14/15. The staff at the desk were very accommodating and friendly, making check-in a breeze. Whenever we travel by motorcycle, as we did here, I always ask staff if there is a place where I can park our bike. Here they didn't hesitate to provide us... More

Their mattress are wonderful. We've stayed many times at the Otsego HI & each time is truly a treat! Water park is great for all ages. note: always watch your own kids. Isn't anyone else's job. Kids eat free, game room & underground parking are great bonuses. Will stay again!

We stayed in two different room types -- the "kid" suite with bunk beds and a regular king room. I liked the regular king room better. The walls in the kid suite were so thin, and the main living room had no windows so it felt like a cave. The only upside to the kid suite was a larger fridge... More

The Poor 1) Both beds were extremely hard with old depressed mattresses. 2) Water Park is only open until 9:00 pm and when it shuts down so does the hot tub. They closed the Park suddenly for 15 minutes where everyone had to get out of the water because they do not have enough employees working. 3) Room service/restaurant also... More
