We went with our daughters basketball team and the girls had a blast in the water park. Unfortunately my daughter got sick in our room a couple of times. The staff that came in and helped clean up was so nice and quick to help. Also let the adults hang out in the resturant overflow late into the evening. Great... More

Great place if you enjoy hanging with children and grumpy parents. Do not go there if you don't have the patience or want a decent night sleep. Kids running up and down the hall and screaming early in the am I have a feeling is the norm on the weekend. It is a waterpark and quite busy, so the staff... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback regarding your stay, we appreciate your time. You are correct, as a family orientated waterpark facility on the weekend, it is quite active around the hotel. Thank you again for your feedback. Greg Pike More

I was traveling with my adult son with Down syndrome and we booked the family suite. The family suite is nice and roomy, with a double bunk bed for my son and a huge king bed in a different room...

Get room on opposite side of building from highway - Heated garage is really nice in middle of winter - The heater in my room had a very loud rattle.

We booked four rooms for a family holiday gathering with grandchildren and cousins, adult children and us, the two grandparents. The place was hosting a wedding party, several birthdays and other groups of families with children. The Horel was festive with a lot of happy people getting together for fun and we had a great time. Although 63, I had... More

I stayed at this hotel because I was attending a birthday party at the water park. The birthday party was done through the hotel with pizza and cake both of which were very good.

Check in was easy, food in the restaurant was excellent, room was clean and location was good. The bathroom door, room door and closet door all hit each other but we worked around it!

Let me begin by saying that we stayed here for one night for my daughters 3rd birthday. We live 10 minutes away, but figured this would be a fun experience with the water park and all....we paid over $200 for a tiny "suite" and were not allowed to bring our own cake into the water park because we didn't pay...

We were very happy with our stay here. Easy checkin. The hotel appeared to be very clean. We didn't use the pool or other facilities. Our room was located across from the vending area, but the room was very quiet. We didn't hear any of the vending machine noise. The bed is comfortable.
