Actually made reservations with the hotel instead of online, this was our first mistake. The price quoted on the phone and what was actually charged was almost double. The $200.00 per night price was not worth the visit. The room had mold in the bathroom and on the ceiling, had to go to desk to get toilet paper within an...

Our daughter & family (grandsons ages 5 & 4) came home to Iowa from Texas for a week. Wanting her children to experience Adventureland as she did when she was a child, we spent the day at the park & then checked in to the Inn for the night. We had a pool level family suite, so were able to...

The only good thing about this hotel is the proxemity to adventureland and the trolley. The rooms are pretty gross, the food is horrible. The pool isn't bad...although it is like a big sauna, so not real 'refreshing'. And the retirees that work there definitely do NOT want to be there...talk about grumps. Our check in process took way too...

The best thing about the hotel was the staff and the trolley to Adventureland. The hotel was outdated and not worth the price. I would equate the hotel room woth something I would expect at Motel 6 or Super 8. Next time will stay at the Best Western which was cheaper and a lot nicer.

So convenient. Trolley takes you to and from adventurland park. Great pools at the hotel. Very clean. Excellent service and very nice staff. The kids felt totally spoiled. Restaurant prices are reasonable and food is okay.

I would say there isn't anything special as far as the rooms go, but that is not the reason to stay at this hotel. #1 is it is right next door to the park and offers a free/fast trolly to get there. The fact that you can walk out your hotel door to the pool is awesome. During these really...

We were thrown out in the middle of the night, had to wake up the kids that were sleeping and get out. Management is very unprofessional and absolutely rude. We would not recommend anyone stay there ever. VERY HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE AND FALSE ACCUSATIONS FROM POOL AREA PATRON, NONE OF IT TRUE.

We have stayed here every summer since 2002! We usually stay two nights but due to our schedules only one night this time. Always clean and very nice staff! Kids love the pools and I love the pool bar ;0). Same time next year!

We stayed at the Adventureland Inn on July 20, 2011 and despite problems with our room/s had a great stay. We have stayed at the Adventureland Inn last year and enjoyed our experience so well, we booked again for this year. We like this property because it has free parking, a trolley which takes you to/from the Adventureland Park, comfortable...
