We have stayed at River Ranch many times in our camper but decided to spend the weekend at the hotel this time. The improvements in the resort are very visible but were clearly done in a hurry without much attention to detail. The gate around the bungee jumper attraction would not shut and the fence already had pieces coming off of it. In the renovated room, our mattress had a large dip in the middle, the new curtains hung over the air conditioner and the new towel ring in the bathroom was coming off the wall. There were multiple places on the floor with paint splatters too. Workmanship aside, the alarm clock wasn't plugged in and I had to move the night stand to plug it in and there were cobwebs in the light fixtures between the beds. The new adventure park is a great addition to the facilities but we were shocked to discover that it isn't open at all on Sunday. And there is virtually no signage to direct you to where to buy tickets or sign waivers. The employees were generally disinterested and did not provide anything beyond the minimal amount of information and appeared to work at their own pace even when lines were very long. The quality of food and service in the restaurant has declined as well. Overall, it is a fun place but we won't stay in the hotel again.
