“Excellent Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

Our family had more than an enjoyable time. The only think I would recommend is that if your younger children are sensitive to noise be ready when you go to the water park. Other than that you could not ask for a better place to vacation!!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 113 .. this room had the little area with the bunk beds for 2 children. The kids l...

This is our 8th family reunion celebrated here on Thanksgiving week end. We've had excellent experiences but this was very far from that. The property is in dire need of repair and updating. We get 3 rooms and each one had large stains on the carpet, one was missing a coffee table, what furniture was there was worn out. In the Waterpark itself the conveyor for the family tubes was broken and people were expected to haul enormous oddly shaped floats up 3 stories and there were only 3 of them. Because of that the single tube lines were long. Feces was on the walkway on Saturday evening when we left the Waterpark and had not been cleaned on Sunday morning when we returned. The hand sanitizer machine by the elevator was empty all week end. Not a good experience overall and we have many years to compare it to.

None of the fearful, negative comments carried the weight of the words and poor ratings I'd seen. My 9 year old daughter and 12 year old son are having a blast. Friendly, clean, reasonably warm and not very cold water. Almost no lines! Sitting here now at night by a warm fie and reception area clearly modeled after Grgat Wolf. Nice atmosphere, good music and lots of smiling kids and parents that are as happy as they decide to be - have the energy for. As you can read in some of the very negative comments, some people are just not very happy or are overly critical. Imagine if they were as critical when they stood looking at themselves in the mirror! Sorry, just had to throw that in. We just finished a super meal at Outback 2 miles own the road. At 1/2 the price of Great Wolf Lodge and, at this time of the year anyway, much faster service and almost no waiting for flume, etc, this is a blast and worth every penny. Gore Mountain and Whiteface in the general area make this a potential hotel for larger families with multiple activity desires this time of the year. You can keep Great Wolf Lodge if a larger park saves $250/night. Thank you Six Flags for making a wonderful experience for a family on a budget.

I came here for my daughters birthday (her idea). I was I the room with a cabin for beds. They had construction going on and they were working till 11:30 (I called to remind them that quite hours are 11 pm)

Next day I swear a heard was running through with all the banging. I hate complaining, but had to call. It wasn't workers this time it was guest. :(

I left a tip for my room steward ($10) and she didn't do the best job. Usually details are much nicer when you leave a tip. Kids room wasn't made up, and my bed was just flipped back over. No sheets tucked or anything. I didn't understand.

Hair dryer broken :-( not the biggest deal but it is November and it is a water park.

Food inside the pool area is expensive and not that great.

All in all, if it wasn't for the kids wanting to come here I wouldn't. Perhaps I'll take the extra hour ride to Great Wolf Lodge in Niagara Falls instead.

For the money I paid, it wasn't worth it.

The property overall is very nice. Check in was a breeze, as the front desk crew were inviting and efficient. I didn't use many of the amenities, such as the kids club, but overall the vacation spot is a good value. We did an over nighter in the, "Adirondack Suite", which has a log cabin in the room itself. This provides a comfortable level of privacy for the kids and the adults, and for $228.00, including 4 waterpark ticks for 2 days, room, taxes and fees, I couldn't complain. Someone stated the lights didn't work, but I think they needed to wait for them to, "heat up". They are energy saving bulbs, and take a while to brighten. (Might wanna put the light on in the bathroom a bit before showering to ensure enough light to see what you're doing.) Anywho, as for the water park, it seemed very understaffed. (NOTE: NOT REFERRING TO THE LIFEGUARDS.Good ratio staff to guests.) Towels are a hot commodity, and are hard to come by. They need a better system. Speaking of bad systems, the raft ride that holds four desperately needs the conveyor belt in service. It's an accident waiting to happen. Humping that thing up 4 flights with 2 young'uns had me clutching my chest. "Up a Lazy River", is great, but there were never nearly enough rafts. I was told this was a busy w/e, (Veteran's Day), but it didn't seem crowded enough for the lack of items. Still, the 7 year old and 11 year old we had with us were absolutely thrilled, zero complaints, and we found it to be perfectly age appropriate for them. "Johnny Rockets", has a great staff, and is a nice price break for a resort restaurant. Same could be said for the gift shop...pretty reasonable as well. As for who this resort is ideal for age wise, I would say 3-11. I would recommend, "Great Wolf Lodge", for the older kids, as they have more rides for teens. Lastly, grab a luggage cart before you head to the water park, especially if you have two adults and can split up. Load up your car as much as you can in the early a.m., because people put the carts in their rooms and leave them there until they are ready to check out. They had 10, but I waited nearly an hour for one, so take care of that stuff early and it should make your exit smoother. If you want to step out for food, set your nav system on American food cuisine. Many decent eateries are located less than 3 miles from the resort that are family friendly such as, "Applebees", "Denny's", and, "Golden Coral". We picked, "Denny's", on the way out, and the place was the perfect ending to a great trip.

Room Tip: If you have little ones that still think there are, "montsters", in the closet, don't...

The place is dirty despite what others say.carpets need to be changed in many rooms and hallways,even people who give 5 stars said that something is not working so how come you give 5 stars?Because kids had a "blast"?The place look like a "fun" place for unions who get free hotel nights to spend with their families after a year of work.A million kids screaming around,pray that you don't have on upper floor a family with kids running and screaming from 5.30 am.Beds are comfy and that's all,fridge is a joke,tiny bathrooms the "traditional suites " are too crowded with furniture,vue is " fantastic" at the highway ,parking lot or another road passing by.Water park is suitable for litlle kids,water is COLD (they make economies on heating oil or gas!!),the attractions for bigger kids are open only one or another and are big lines for nothing special.One single guy handling tthe top attractions,tens of seconds waisted for the guy to come from the other place,why they don't put 2 people there?The wave section was closed on a Veterans day morning for a "private lesson"! Nice!A TON of chorine everywhere you will smell like coming out from a chorine can.The adults only "spa-jacuzzi" section is another cold water spa and you will feel the chorine entering your eyes! Check in at 4pm is you arrive early they send you to wait at water park-lockers are a fortune!!!.Food is overpriced fast food we didn,t try we find good French restaurant few miles away..At the entrance was a skinny black housekkeper vacuuming with a vacuum from the 80's,on upper floors vacummming the floor was done maybe last week,big fat naked mothers and fathers in the reception area coming out from the "waterpark" and showing the celullite in full force.
if you have litlle kids and you never been in a similar place they will enjoy the place if you been 45 miles away at Hope Lake lodge you will go back there in a beat!This place needs a major renovation soon and a much better organization of water park and heating the water.2 stars looking like hotel,3 stars rating is too much believeme.If our are somebody used with a 4 stars don't even try to go here.You will regret!

Room Tip: Choose another similar place if too many grown ups in your party!

Check in was very fast and friendly. A lot is going on at this hotel..it is a very busy place!! Our room was very large and clean, the only thing was that all of our light bulbs did not work, and it was noticeable, so housecleaning should notice this as well. Although we enjoyed our stay, it is a tad pricey, but you are paying for the name "Six Flags". It would be awesome if a breakfast was included in the price of your stay.. Maybe down the road?? There is actually a lot of water fun at the indoor park. All in all this place is for the kids - and the kids love it!!! We will def be going back.
