Although the rooms were decent, they were having a MASSIVE St. Patrick's Day party in the bar downstairs - which was conveniently never mentioned when I made the reservations for my family (including my 5 year old). There were also a TON of other kids there for some sort of tournament who ran up and down the halls until 11 pm... Making it impossible for my 5 year old to sleep (and me). Past 2am, there were parties going on in a few rooms on my floor... people yelling down the hallway, it was a nightmare. We didn't get any sleep - AT ALL. Had we known this was a weekend in which there was a huge party going on, we would have stayed elsewhere. The entire point of staying in a hotel was to get sleep for my little man's wrestling tournament at 7am the next morning. Also, using the pool was a nightmare as there were tons of kids doing cannonballs (I'm not opposed to fun - but when a 5 year old is trying to swim, giant cannonballs are real pain). We tried to enjoy the hot tub, but were bombarded by 6 boys trying to squeeze in with us - not exactly relaxing or comfortable. I think it would be common courtesy for the front desk to give you a heads up when making a reservation if there are large parties going on. For the price we paid to stay the night - I would have rather stayed at home and made the 2 hour drive the morning of the tournament - at least we would have been able to sleep!!!!
