This hotel is a nightmare. I've ever stayed in again! When we arrive the check in took more than 40 min, the front desk assigned us a room in the back of the hotel close to a ball room that was dark (no light) and far away from the water park, my request was a room close to the water... More

This hotel is average or maybe below. There seems to be some updates in the rooms but is in need of complete renovation and removal of carpets - probably the first thing that turned us off in the rooms. Waterpark is dated but kids had fun, and it was pleasantly quiet, likely the time of day we went (late afternoon... More

We went in April and everything was fine. Booked on Groupon again for July. What a change!! The carpet was torn and dirty, lots of the attractions weren't open because we were told by several life guards they were short staffed, let in way too many day passes for the amount of life guards they had and some people came...

This was by far the worst hotel I've ever stayed in!! The outside is an eye sore. The inside was ok but we had no hot water for our whole stay. Glad I didn't have any kids with me. Smh. (This is the first time I've ever left a review ) That's how bad it was.

We bought this trip on a Groupon and after reading all of the reviews I was really scared to go . We arrived on July 23 and checked out on July 28. Has far as the review about the alarm we did not here and per policy for fire you have to check each room in the building and NO... More

Rooms needed to be cleaned and dusted better. Spider webs. broken walls, "old" looking. The weekend we were there was our anniversary celebration with our kids and their families. We did have a lot of fun on the water slides. The staff help around the front desk and food area were very polite and helpful. I was very angry at... More

We checked in and the light to the room didn't work and the phone didn't work. There was no closet in our room. The gap under the door had to be at least four inches. The rooms are set up on the inside wrapped around a banquet area and pool area so you didn't get any sleep until "quiet time"... More

After working 3rd shift and driving up to Sandusky on a Saturday afternoon with the family, they gave us a room by the reception hall in center of hotel that played loud DJ music until almost 11:00pm while trying to sleep and then about 1:30am someone pulled the fire alarm and woke everyone up and had to walk across the...

The Front Desk staff was Great. We stayed here for our son 15th Birthday. The bunk beds was too small for 4 teenage boys all over 5 foot :) But they made it work. The indoor water park was too kiddie for the boys, so the Front Desk Clerk told us about Kalahari Resort down the street. (It was pricey,... More

This place is TERRIBLE! I bought a Groupon and took the family to the water park for my step daughter's 6th Birthday and sad to say we were all really disappointed. The front desk staff was rude and seemed overwhelmed although there was no one else in line to check in. Were weren’t greeted very well at all. Upon entering... More
