We stayed for two nights for a nearby wedding. Nice hotel. Large clean rooms, great staff and a good restaurant/bar on site. Additionally, the Rockwoods Grill is a short walk across the parking lot and was fantastic. Great value for the money.

This is my second visit in the past few years. This was also a good one. Free wifi and a very clean room at my basic needs. Having a full service restaurant on site is a bonus. Nowadays, many hotel brands offer up the now typical free breakfast but it's limited in many instances. During the weekdays, the restaurant opens... More

I was very impressed by this hotel: the service, the accommodations, the food, and the water park. I decided to take my three kids here for the night just for some fun before school starts up again. When we arrived in our room (which was a standard double queen), I realized it had a connecting door to another room. Because... More

This was a very nice Express. Staff was very friendly and the rooms were comfortable and clean. What more could you ask for. With a water park at the hotel it was very busy but not bother for us. Would stay here again.

This was the worse experience I've ever dealt with. The staff was extremely rude, we didn't get our room until after check in, which caused us to be late for a wedding. I have a toddler, they didn't offer to us we could use the water park but we found out from others they did. I will never recommend this... More

We picked this hotel for the waterpark and it did not disappoint! Our 4 year old had a blast on the big waterslides and our two year old loved the little slides.

How many hotels have an incredible waterpark attached to it?! We have travelled to more than a hundred hotels with a little slide in the pool at best, and this one has everything?!
