Stayed here this past weekend as a jumping point for Knoebel's Amusement Park.
The property was spot in with what you would expect from the brand. The rooms were clean, service was fine, everything was fresh, etc. The kids enjoyed the pool to use up some energy. The one thing that might have been a bit "out of line" was that Sunday morning, the room and hall became full of the smell of woodsmoke. I am not sure if this was a byproduct of the expansion they are undertaking or what, but it was noticable.
PARENTS: If you are traveling with toddlers/young children that have a bit of extra energy, I might reconsider this property. The room is decorated in an attractrive manner, but there are many sharp corners that could really hurt a child that was not listening (I know, they are always angels, right?) The corners of the dresser, desk, and TV stand are all as pointy as could be. Even the nightstand, which was directly between the beds, had some evil corners that we covered with pillows. The "headboard" mounted on the wall behind the beds even has sharp corners on the bottom that a young one can (and did) hit their head on. This is not a fault of the property at all, I just wanted to make any parents aware. We were a nervous mess until the kids were sleeping.
