We went to this waterpark for my son's birthday. We were enticed by the special price they were running (69.95/night) which included 4 water park passes. With this price alone, the trip was worth it. All other places were double when we were looking into it.
When we arrived, the first thing I noticed was the nice wood trim and well decorated interior. We had a standard room on the first floor. The room was a double queen, pretty much a standard hotel room. One thing that I saw on trip advisor and noticed myself was the absence of noise cancellation products. All doors closed loudly and we could almost make out conversations that were going on in other rooms.
It is a walk to the waterpark area from the rooms. When we entered, the size of the room is great. The area is well spaced out and well organized. The play structure is great for smaller kids. My son(3) loved the sides of the slides and my daughter(1) enjoyed the turtles, small canoe slide and water spouts. The water was warm, but the closer you got to the door the chillier the air was. It didn't help that we were there on one of the coldest days in almost two years, but with small kids it was a little bothersome. After about 30 min all my kids wanted to do was go into the pool where the basketball hoop was.
We went out for dinner but stayed in for breakfast. The breakfast was good for the kids, but the adult choices were mediocre and the prices were a little high for the time of day.
Pros: water park was spacious and kid friendly. My kids loved the play structure and pools. The staff was accommodating and attentive. They answered all questions with more than just a yes or no answer. The price for the day at the park and night out was great.
Cons: The superficial use of Native American names and objects. I understand its part of an Indian reservation, but it makes it seem like a knock-off of GWL. It seemed less authentic and a money grubbing attempt. The noise. Listening to kids scream and run in the halls and a adjacent rooms after 11 at night was annoying at best. I understand its a place for kids, but there is a place for that and its not in the hallways that late at night. Lastly, the hours of the waterpark were cut short during our stay. There was an activity that cost additional funds that caused the water park to close one hour early. Also, the area didn't open till 10am. With checkout at 11, we had to pack our change of clothes and checkout to be able to stay for more than one hour.
Over all, because of the price, our trip was worth it. I would probably go back if they ran the same deal in two years from now, but otherwise I'd check out some other places.
