My family of four (kids are ages 2 and 4) stayed four nights, and we loved our time here. We stayed in the most basic room (I think?) with two queen beds, and it worked for our needs.
The breakfast was the best hotel breakfast I've ever had -- omlette station where you can order a customized omlette; a hot foods line which was served by their staff (items such as scrambled eggs, sausage, breakfast burritos, grits, ham, biscuits and gravy, and things that rotated each day); a self-serve area to make waffles or pancakes, grab a muffin, breakfast pastry, fruit...several varieties of coffee (I loved their Christmas blend!)...you get the idea.
They had someone checking hotel keys at the entry, because with a breakfast that plentiful and delicious, I can see someone trying to sneak in for a bite. For non-guests, the rate was $12.99/person.
The pools were great. The indoor ranges from 3-4 feet and there's also a large hot tub. Outside, the pool states it's 3 -5 feet, but my son could touch in the indoor pool and couldn't touch in the outdoor. Maybe 3.5 feet to start?
The water slide was very fun. For young kids, they would love the splash pad. Multiple fountains and a very shallow area to sit and splash. Perfect! Plenty of lounge chairs, tables with umbrellas.
We enjoyed borrowing Christmas movies from the front desk and getting our nightly cookie(s) also.
Attended the Singing Santa concert on Saturday night, and we were pleasantly surprised at his talent.
Staff was attentive and excellent. We had a few requests for housekeeping items (I forgot my toothbrush; and we needed a change of sheets after housekeeping already came by) and it all went smoothly.
The only downside we can think of: The game room wasn't free. We wished we could play air hockey or pool or a video game with the price included in our room fee.
Location is walkable to several attractions and restaurants. We walked to Mellow Mushroom (pretty good) and Bullfish Grill (eh, whatever). Take the road behind the hotel when you can (Teaster Lane) as it is a decent mini-bypass to avoid traffic.
