We have stayed here many times. If I was writing this review 7 years ago it would have got one star. Most of the rooms have been remodeled since then. The first room we stayed in 7 years ago had a mattress that sagged in the middle, warn furniture, and smoke smell in non smoking rooms. Now the rooms have new mattresses, new furniture, and clean new carpet, new paint smell. You can still get connecting rooms which is the big draw for us having two young kids but I'm worried that now all the rooms have been remodeled that we will be priced out of getting two rooms. It was always a double edged sword with this place. Dumpy rooms but they were cheap so we could justify getting two. You can still get cheap rooms midweek but no more on the weekend. The buffet is TERRIBLE so do yourself a favor and don't eat there. The cafe is so/so. Actually the food options are not the best so that is why it is only 4 stars. We have ate at Charlie Palmers before which is good but super pricy. I don't like having to pay extra for side dishes when ordering a $40 steak. This summer Johnny Rockets was closed for renovations but nobody at the hotel knew. The The Cirque show is good again this year but not as good as last year's Cirque. Still worth it if you get the room/show deal for a good price. It is a fun family getaway because they have bowling, mini golf, driving range into water (we got rained out of this though), arcade, go carts, swimming pool with beach, and sports fan shop.
