    Decent but not even good. Front desk guy was not helpful or friendly. Early breakfast didn’t happen as promised because morning guy doesn’t read the memos. Water park, to use the slides you had to ask them to send the lifeguard out. Room was fine.

    I believe the Waters allows pets at an extra charge. I would reserve early, rooms that time of year book up fast and expect to pay the "peak season" rates. Try Groupon to get a better deal.
