Good hotel for the price, nice rooms, good breakfast. I honestly have no complaint about the hotel itself! The beds were comfortable, the heater was quiet, the stay enjoyable. The pool and hot tub are outdoors, but still very relaxing after a long day of roller coasters!
That being said, I agree with the previous reviewer.. we didn't want to pay to park at Six Flags, that's why we stayed here.. it IS close enough to walk to the park and some good restaurants though the busy road can be VERY daunting. Once you pass the Marie Callendars and gas stations there are NO sidewalks the rest of the way up the hill to the park!! No sidewalks even into the park so we were trudging through wet soggy grass and mud. The walk back to the hotel was dark and we were a bit timid without good lighting, cars whizzing by and no sidewalk. If you have little ones with you, I wouldn't walk!! I wish the hotel offered a shuttle year-round..
Also, my one other minor detail that perhaps the hotel can work on.. please don't get me wrong, the staff was VERY nice and friendly! But truly clueless about the surrounding area. Couldn't give me ANY recommendations on evening entertainment. My friend and I were looking for perhaps a bar with live music, karaoke, or lively DJ.. It was a Friday night! We wanted to go out! They didn't know of a single place to go. :-( We ended up driving around in vain and a bit disappointed, we returned to the hotel early, watch a movie and went to bed. Be prepared with your things to do list before you go!
