The rooms were nice. The view of the river was great. There was music on the patio. There was a water park with a spa, but we didn't have time to enjoy it.

We used the fresh deal package that’s available. It included one night stay, a gift certificate to Tony Roma’s, Water Park bracelets and 80 tokens to the arcade! The kids had a blast.
