Disappointing! Not impressed with the staff or the motel. Had to request a different room upon arrival as my requested "non-smoking" room smelled like a smokers den. There is NO continental breakfast that is complementary. I had asked on reservation if there was a continental breakfast and was told there was. Very deceptive, when in fact, there is a grill/bar ajoined with the motel and you must BUY your continental breakfast. The flyer in the room advertized juice, 1 piece of toast, an apple or banana, and coffee for $10! We passed, and ate at Cabela's breakfast buffet for $7. The bed was comfortable, but it was a horrible restless night due to the paper-thin walls, screaming kids and slamming doors at all hours of the night, and the room's extremely noisy air-conditioning fan. Seriously noisy! You can not hear someone talking to you on the other side of the room with the AC unit on, and the TV must be turned high to hear over the noise as well. Poor temperature regulation in the room...if the AC was on low, the room got hot and humid in about 15 min. Refrigerator seal was broken and did not cool properly. The ONLY reason I can think to stay here is if you have little kids who wish to use their water park--although it did not look very clean to us...otherwise keep driving to a better location.
