We stayed one night at this hotel, Holiday Inn Express South. It was just me and my 9 year old daughter. The King room with jacuzzi was nice - not HUGE - but nice. Bed was comfortable -but needed 2 more pillows - a King size bed should have 6 pillows.
The pool area is nice- there is not a place for swimming any laps - but that is okay with us. My daughter enjoyed the calm water slide and the small kiddie area was nice.
I LOVE the idea that NO ONE under 16 is allowed in the hot tub -- not even a foot!!!
And the lifeguard monitors that -- makes it nice!
I wish they would monitor the little kiddie area more often. There were some bigger kids trying to walk UP the slide -- and then they slid down the middle portion of the slides. Not only is it rude for the other people that follow the 'common sense" rule of slides are for DOWN ONLY - but it could cause for an accident and possible injury.
One area that I did report to the front desk - is that we saw a few ants in a couple ares of our room -- and also one insect/bug. The staff indicated that with the hotel a WATERPARK there may be an increase in bugs. Seemed like an odd response --- I was expecting "Thanks for bringing it to our attention, I will pass it along to the management"
