The entire complex smells like old water. Dead flies in the kids pool. Water damage throughout. No updates anywhere (yellowish bed sheets that used to be white, filthy carpet, leaky ceilings, etc.). There are other, visibly better lodging options in the area. Please pick any one of them before staying at this hotel. I have traveled frequently for a variety... More

We were lured to this hotel as part of a time share pitch. No problem with that, however, we were told that that they had just had a GRAND re-opening and that the hotel had been remodeled. Blah, blah, blah, long story short, two rooms have been renovated for the purpose of selling what this hotel will look like under... More

Good thing is Kids loved the place despite all you are about to read. The inhouse Pizza place was quite good. As parents this place was extremely disappointing in many other catergories.Tiles in most of the pools are loose missing or broken with sharp edges exposed. We could not find ice in hotel. Room smelled terrible. In a water park... More

Purchased the room through a third party, for a steal rate. Go to the room at 4:30, and were greeted by a young man with some type of twitch going on with his face. He was very nice, professional, and made sure all was ok during my check-in. I asked him, if he could upgrade my room, and he did,... More

I purchased a Groupon to stay at this resort and thought I was getting a good deal; I wish I could have my money refunded. I would not stay here even if it was free. It was old, run-down dirty and in terrible need of repair. The tub did not drain so we were showering in a pool of dirty... More

Do not waste your time or money, I got a groupon deal and boy am I sorry I did. This place is disgusting all around, poor staff, awful rooms, no bar and restaurant. We were not happy about one thing and feel completely ripped off by groupon. The pictures are way off online and as soon as we checked in... More

This place is definitely not worth the money. The room was a nice size (we had one King bed, and a small separate living area). The bed was extremely creaky, so hopefully the walls weren't too thin. I couldn't tell you if the walls are thin or not because there were maybe only 5 other rooms booked there. We arrived... More

Note that after checking in we were told that we could pick up our parking pass from the “Concierge” desk which was a starting point for high pressure “time share” sales. They offered $100 if we would be willing to spend an hour going through a tour of their proposed plans for remodeling, etc. We politely declined but they were... More

I would not recommend staying here at all! My purse along with another ladies purse and gentleman's wallet were stolen out of the outdoor pool area. No cameras at all. Thought this was a family friendly place to stay. Indoor water park was never open. Rooms were very outdated and not very clean. Staff was not attentive. Did not care... More
