Water slide and pool get busy quickly. The pool is quite small outside of the water slide area. I recommend getting in the pool during the late afternoon/early evening time while most families are at supper. It quickly filled up and the line got long for the water slide after the supper hour. Room was a nice size.

Upon on arrival with my 83 year old mom and my wife, we were informed that Booking.Com had flipped our reservation from July 23 to August 27. They had one room that would not accomadate us so they gave me the number to call Booking.Com to find us another room. Keep in mind that we were the third party with... More

This is a large hotel geared toward families and children as it has a water slide. Nevertheless, the rooms themselves are quiet without a lot of sound transmission. The decor is not outdated, but done in your grandmother's traditional style. Many, including myself, prefer a more modern decor. There is no free breakfast as indicated on TripAdvisor site, just a...

Stayed one night on our way out west. Comfortable and the staff was awesome. The pool looked fun but we decided to see the Presidents light up. Utilize the Perkins as the Denny's across the highway is a dump. Dated but had a fair price. They do Karaoke in the lounge on the weekends so get a room away from... More

Great hotel, worth it's value. The room was big and very well furnished. The bed was big and very comfortable. The room was clean. The bathroom was clean too. The pool looked great but unfortunately we never had a chance to use the pool as we needed to take off early in the morning.

We were looking for a reasonably priced place to stay with our family and decided on this hotel. Our kids had the best time at the pool. It is not large and has one water slide but it was heated and the slide was so much fun, they had to have gone down it 50 times! My husband and daughter... More

After a day on the road we pulled in to the hotel. Got in the door and the place looked dated but ok in the lobby. Pool looked great. Big water slide for kids. But that was the highlight. We had reserved months ago and requested adjoining rooms. They told us at the time it would be no problem. But... More

The rate per night was too expensive for this type of hotel. The pool was ok. The beds were ok. The carpets need an upgrade. The fridge in the room should have been placed on top of a small table, you can only open it to a certain point as the door would drag on the floor. The bathroom also... More

We got a very good rate for the room online. When we checked in, the hotel was very clean, well kept lobby. The room was clean, very spacious. It had character, not like the everyday look that all the new hotels have. We enjoyed our stay.
