If you want to sleep, don't stay here's if you have small children that make lots of noise, this is perfect. I read that it was next door to the biggest indoor water park in SD. The water park is not much bigger than a splash pad. There are a couple of slides, hot tub, and small lazy river. The... More

Hotel was nice, comfortable beds & they give you 2 complimentary drinks for the bar. The rates are cheaper before the peak time. Make sure if your there during off peak season that you check your statement, they charge a resort fee. If you know your not going to use it they will take it off. Otherwise it a great... More

Just left there this morning after a one night stay. It was great! Rolled up at 8:30pm, room- done, military discount-done, I have a pet- no problem, Returns member- too easy. We were tired and in our room within 10min. It was the least expensive room I have ever stayed in by a log shot but it certainly was not... More

Wish the pool had longer hours, but this place was exceptional! Way better value for the money than some others of the same chain. Going to stay there again on my return trip. Super easy to reach attractions from this location.

Every time we make it out here I feel the need to write about these guys. They make us feel so at home. Kayti and Andrea spent almost an hour just listing to me rant about the awful trip in we had. They were so sympathetic and caring. They did everything they could to make me smile and feel relaxed.... More

Price was perfect, service was great....even got a call from the front desk as a check in to make sure that we had everything. Got room service & have to say it was one of the best steaks we ever had. Highly recommend! Room was super clean!

I have never witnessed or experienced such poor customer service in my many years of travel. We had a large group for an event and were treated as if we were troublemakers as we walked in the door. They yelled at us for turning on the lights in the common area and then were told if we didn't go straight... More

We stayed here over the weekend paid $159.99 + tax for a king suite with sleeper sofa. I tried booking online with our loyalty points but couldn't on the mobile site. So when we arrived I told the girl at the front desk and she said " well we are probably out of rooms to use for points" she didn't... More

Booked a two night stay this weekend so my children could enjoy a little bit of warmth this cold winter. I had comcomplained about a shower that wasn't working three times before the issue was corrected. I ended up get escorted out by police officers because the assistant manger could deal with the fact that I called her lazy and... More
