There are resorts and then there are family resorts. Pzazz is much more of the latter. (If you're looking for a romantic getaway, try the Catfish Bend Resort at the other end of the property). If you have kids, they'll think Pzazz is awesome, because it's attached to a water park and giant arcade (plus a casino). If you're looking for a quiet getaway, Pzazz probably isn't it.
Pluses are the number of amenities on site (mentioned above) plus restaurants, and a minor league ballpark within walking distance. Minuses are the convoluted layout (good luck finding the front door of Pzazz--I don't think it has one) and the room wings, which feature long corridors and low ceilings. The rooms themselves aren't bad, but views are of parking.
If I were traveling with youngsters, this hotel would get four stars--from the kids.
