We try to stay at this hotel whenever we visit Story Land. The great outdoor pool combined with a nice indoor pool is the reason. But there are other things we enjoy.
Right by the pool is a fire pit that gets lit at night. This makes it easy to get the kids out of the pool and eat dinner poolside. (There's a pizza place that delivers there or other easy takeout options in area if a grownup does a quick run.) They can warm themselves by fire while eating, then return to the pool.
They have nightly free make your own sundaes. Of course there are a million ice cream places around the corner. By being at the hotel, it allows us to go get the ice cream in our wet bathing suits, then return to the fire pit.
Trying to cram in as much fun to a couple of days as possible, this just makes it convenient.
They also have game time, craft time, and movie times every night. We enjoyed that one year (too busy other years).
The staff is wonderful. Everyone is pleasant and helpful. When we've had any kind of problem, they have been quick to fix.
The kids get free breakfast (adults have to pay). The buffet is very extensive, though quality mediocre.
The rooms are clean and decent looking.
It is inconvenient that there is no separate bedroom. It means lights out for everyone at the same time. And the prices aren't the best.
If you go up during the time of year that you can't make use of the outdoor pool, you might want to price out other options. But even then, most hotels' indoor pools are small in comparison, or feel like you are in a dungeon.
So I guess it really depends on how important the pool is to your family.
