My 7 yr old daughter and I were very happy with the entire facility. The rates are very affordable and I also received a discount by reserving the room through Orbitz.com. The front desk clerks were very nice as well as the housekeeping staff. The indoor pool and waterpark were clean, although the water was not as warm as it... More

Stayed here for the Sight and Sound show. The place could use an upgrade but it was clean and comfortable. We did use the indoor pool it was nice. Check in and check out was quick and efficient. The free breakfast had a good choice of foods. I was very suprised that a budget hotel had such a good free... More

We were looking for an inexpensive, weather-proof overnight getaway for us and our 9-year old son. The water park was fine, clean enough and safe enough, it's pretty small but for the money and the fact that you can stay only one night it was fine. The rooms were clean and nice enough. Our expectations were in keeping with the... More

We stayed here as a last vacation before our kids started school. My children range in age from a newborn, 3 yo, 4 yo, 6 yo. Waterpark online looked fun. We had to pay for an additional waterpark pass even though I had a newborn and wasn't swimming. The room was smelly, musky and the motel was very noisey. As... More

We choose this hotel because it had a in door water park. Only to find our it is only open Friday thru sunday. Hotel is musty, old, carpets dirty, towels will rub your skin right off. This place would be a gold mine if it was renovated and water park was open year round.

It is an old hotel but doable for the money. The room was clean and the bathroom clean. The ac worked great at least in our room. I do wish they had espn on the tv. Pool was ok with no glaring faults. Hey if you want flawless then you're going to pay a heck of a lot more money... More

I travel a lot for business and vacation both and have seen a lot of hotels in many different countries. This hotel was cheap so we decided to spend one night there and with the rate we had we didn't expect everything to be new or in perfect condition... what we DID expect however was for the room to be...

Stayed here for 2 nights Thursday-Saturday. All in all I have no real complaints. Yes it used to be a Howard Johnsons way back, but it is pretty decent. The fact that it was a Ho Jo has nothing to do with anything. The room (2 Queen Beds) was pretty clean with the exception of a small rip in the... More

This was our second stay at this hotel in about a year, and we have already been talking about another trip. We booked the waterpark package for the weekend as a birthday getaway for my 11 yr old. We spent about 10 hours altogether in the waterpark area- very clean, nice locker area with great showers if you need them,... More
