I had stayed at this hotel many times in the past years but not for a long time. We were so excited to return and share in the magic this hotel once gave us. Even though check-in was quick and easy my heart sunk when I entered the room itself. The hotel boasts itself as Retro fun and I must say retro was the key word . The room was worn and the bathroom was small and dated. I phoned down to the front desk and asked if they had any other rooms. I had booked so far in advance to be in the corner overlooking the roof of the check in building was unacceptable. They were quite surprised that it wasn't to my satisfaction and I asked if they had a room in the same building higher up and brighter. There wasn't anything so we decided to try the other building moving from building 1 to 2. This room was on the ground floor, very dark, low ceiling the the toilet was so close to the wall you almost sat on the TP roll. Since I had a recent knee replacement and would be spending lots of time in the room I was very saddened by the rooms offered at such a high price. My family were very supportive and we drove to the Sheraton at the Park and moved the next day to a lovely bright room with a fireworks view. The HoJo said it wants to be a 5 star but I can only say a waterpark doesn't make everyone happy. Get your rooms updated!!! To the manager: not handling our concerns yourself and having staff quote you did nothing to making us feel welcome. Wifi though free was not the best. Did have a lovely swim in the pool though.
