Stayed here last night w my wife and 2 kids for a wedding. I'm a Marriott elite but chose this hotel because it obviously has larger rooms. Room was almost perfect for our family to spread out and get a good nights rest. It was really nice to have three sinks.
The breakfast is awesome. Hot and cold buffets and made to order omelettes. For a family of 4 this offset the ridiculous $18 forced valet parking fee by far. Also the free cocktail hour was nice (not just beer but a full bar service!)
The only issue we had was that the tiny pool was packed sat evening with about 40 very loud kids and only 3 adults present. After talking to one of the kids, I learned that a guest was having a birthday party and invited all these kids to enjoy the pool. This was unacceptable as the pool occupancy stated only 20 ppl and hot tub only 3ppl. I love kids but it was so loud and overpacked that we did not care to stay and enjoy this resource. If someone wants to have a pool party on the cheap, this is the wrong place to do it as it is a TINY little pool.
Also there is no pay per view movies. We were considering renting a family friendly movie but could not.
My advice is to remember that this is strictly a hotel for large groups and families, and I would definitely stay here again and recommend it for that purpose. Avoid if you are a business traveler or couple looking for a quiet evening.
