Questionable things about this Resort: Key cards are sensitive, most don't work. Mine didn't. The heat lamp in the bathroom was on from Sunday Aug 4th when we checked in, until Wednesday Aug. 7th. I did inform the front desk, and they said they would...More

The room was very outdated. It still had the noisy air conditioning unit of long ago. The carpeting was worn, the furniture was in need of replacement. This room was certainly not worth the $163.00 we paid. We did not go to the waterpark.

Well, Let me start out by saying ... We need to clean up the entire inside area... It is dirty ...moldy.. and just plain gross. I don't think the water is tested.

This waterpark is showing age badly. Paint peeling/fading everywhere and the water play ground was so rusty. The bottoms of the pools were all gravel-y, I assume due to wear of the coating. It's small, but the slides they do have are fun. Additionally there...More

Don’t stay here if you want a good night’s sleep. You can hear EVERYTHING going on in the neighboring rooms and hallways. I stay at hotels fairly frequently and this on is the worst I’ve ever stayed at as far as wall insulation. Our neighbors...More

Seemed to be an unremarkable stay, sorry to say. Expectations were to enjoy a beautiful room but the room was drab in color and design. It could use a new coat of paint...

We did not go to the waterpark, but there is a fee to use it. I would not go to this hotel, expensive and not worth it.
