We stayed at here as part of a Bluegreen promotion. I really enjoyed the time spent here. The room was clean and big enough to put a double air mattress in the room without being crowded. There were 2 queens but we had 2 adult children with us so needed the extra bed. There was a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee...

We stayed for 2 nights recently and have a mixed review. Pros: Reservations staff was friendly and courteous; outdoor pools were nice; option to have room service or food brought to your outdoor table is convenient; our room was clean and very spacious. Cons: When we passed staff in the hall, no one made eye contact or greeted us; the...

Would we stay here again? No we wouldn’t. We stayed for 2 nights, the beds were rock hard and so were the pillows-in fact we almost left after the first night! The rooms are beyond old and worn down. Our shower/tub still had “hair” from another person in it! Everything about the room was old and outdated. NO INTERNET!! The...

We brought our kids here and overall had a fun time. I was sort of disappointed because it seems kind of run down. It needs a lot of maintenance done. The slides and park gear are peeling and seem sort of old. The pool water was sort of cloudy and kinda dirty. Room was nice and clean. No bed bugs...

Upon walking into the room, the floor was damp after taking off our shoes. The room smelled of mold! We stayed on the first floor, and had a two queen sofa room next to a door entrance. Everything in the room was a trip back to the 90's. No flat screen TVs, no Internet, even the comforter on the bed...

In hindsight, I would have gladly spent more money to go to a newer hotel. The water park was a very enjoyable. There were no lines during our stay. However, the quality of the room was shockingly poor. I had to ask for a different room because the first one smelled like pet urine. Essentially everything in the room (beds,...
