I have done some pretty stupid things in my life but this by far was the dumbest decision by booking one night stay at this place. I will start off talking about the waterpark first - I will say that the water park is fairly nice and my kids always enjoy it. I usually just go to Fort Rapids for... More

I found my stay to be comfortable, clean,accommodating and with friendly staff. Not sure of the complaints you read my room was fine the water park was closed cause it was a weekday. Will bring my family back to enjoy the arcade and water park... note everything is closed during the week.....

This place would NOT stay open. It needs total updating in the rooms. The people working there could careless. They must just hear complaint after complaint and just dont care. Its too bad. Go for the water slides, but dont expect anything fancy as far as the room goes.

First off a lot of hidden fees.half the workers have no uniforms so you don't know who works here if you need help.Rooms suck.bees are flying over every entrance.very disappointed and very expensive.feels like a low budget hotel.Redroof Inn is a lot nicer than this place.

We went to celebrate my daughter's birthday. The kids had a blast between the waterpark and arcade. The staff was very friendly and helpful. When we were in the waterpark we decided to get a pizza. It was very good and loved we didn't have to leave. We will definitely make the trip again!

Stayed overnight at the hotel because I was meeting a group there for a bachlorette party. The hotel's General appearance is a little dated and worn. Definitely could use a little maintenance. The cow hide pattern wallpaper in the room's bathroom was a bit tacky. Not many outlets to plug in a phone. I will say that the bar had... More

I don’t know where to even start here…. We arrived at the hotel/water park about 2:00 pm. The grounds are horribly not kept up. Trash can be seen everywhere on the premises (see pictures). Not only that – there were many boards in multiple areas lying around with nails sticking up (see pictures). Cars were lined up in the fire... More

I made a reservation for this hotel with Expedia. Expedia offered to pay at the hotel for a rate of $210 for one night. Insane price, but my son loves waterparks so I made the reservation. A full refund was offered by Expedia if I cancelled within the time indicated. Not only did the hotel itself charge me for the... More
