We (2 parents, 2 kids under 7) really enjoyed this hotel. I was leery at first b,/c it looks a bit like a tourist trap on the outside.. But inside its a lovely hotel with great rooms, and terrific bar / restaurant. My kids loved the gift shop, feeding the ducks, and playground. The fire pit / pond area was nice as well, though the playground, pond, and fire pit are a bit close to the highway so expect to hear traffic. The pool was small but nice. Stop by the bar early since I think it closes by 9 or so, but be sure to get a tomato bisque while there. Delish!!!
