One thing I must say, the place is immaculate. It is constantly being cleaned. Even if you are sitting in a chair, reading a book, and that is their time to clean, too bad for you. If you move a chair and then have to go to the bathroom, leaving your things behind, by the time you get back, the chair will be in it's original position and your things will be somewhere else. All of us have rules about no glass around a pool for the obvious reasons and we all AGREE with those rules BUT, at the Park Lane, don't dare step out of your room for a second or "dear ole Jim" is behind you reprimanding you. We all also have the same feelings about safety around a pool. Which of us wants to take our child to the ER for a split head or worse? When 1 of our children stuck his legs over the sliding board the FIRST time, Jim was at him BEFORE he even hit the water. Speaking of that sliding board, it's really positioned quite dangerously & it's amazing no one has gotten hurt yet although, maybe Jim just scares them away. No one was around on this rainy weekend and 2 of our kids were playing with a small nerf ball in the pool and that too he disapproved of. Our family took up, I believe, 19 rooms. It was a rainy, cold weekend. We got charged a rate HIGHER THEN THE BROCHURE because, according to Jim, it was the Biker's weekend and he can charge "WHAT HE WANTS" because he doesn't belong to any of the organizations governing any of the hotels/motels in the area. The brochure said the motel room (sleeps 4) should have been $84/night. I was charged $99/night for the 1st 2 people then $10/night for each additional person then, of course 14% tax. We paid him all this money and our kids were so restricted on a rainy, empty weekend. Then, one of the children is wheelchair bound. He rocks and sometimes we don't always catch him fast enough before he hits something. Well, he touched the plexiglass pool enclosure and no sooner did he do that then "dear ole Jim" was there telling us to "control" him. The child has Cerebral Palsy and ALL of us were watching him but sometimes you can't always catch everything. Jim could CARE LESS !!! His ONLY concern is how his PRECIOUS Park Lane Resort looks. We began feeling that we were living in a George Orvall book with Big Brother watching over us. We even started looking for the monitors. How did he know & see everything we were doing and be on top of us so fast? Although, as best we can tell, he didn't mess much with the bikers who were att he hotel at the time, especially the ones on the 3rd floor who came in with, at least, 4 fishing coolers and an assortment of "other" things. The smell of "dope" was evident even passing under their room on the 2nd floor but, then again, you can't SEE that. I also was upset at paying SO MUCH for a room that was right where the 2nd floor sun deck is yet, at night, it's roped off. It's a VERY nice area to have a quiet nice peaceful chilling time where you can just watch the stars and relax. DON'T DARE to cross the barracade!!! Your foot will barely be on the floor when Jim will be at your back reprimanding you. We swear he has it wired. My 82 year old uncle was looking for signs of it and the monitors. We were there with a large group, so that means a lot of people who LIKE each other. We ALSO just buried, on Tuesday, one of the people who was supposed to be with us on this trip. When you get a large group of people together, even if each is speaking quietly, the volume is going to go up. What did Jim expect? At times, we may have been load but no loader then the bikers driving by all night long !!! We also had children who were sleeping so we were quite aware of the noise volumes. The bottom line is------It is a very nice, clean place with a pretty nice view. If you are a Senior Citizen who does not make any noise, this is the place for you. If you are anyone who doesn't like to make any noise and you stay indoors and watch TV while on vacation, this is the place for you. If you are a family who have children that have no "fun" in them, then they'll be ok here as well. Watch the laughter level, it may upset Jim. When asked if he had any children, he said with a very hard frown "NO" !!! I guess that should have told us something. If you don't mind rude people, this is the place for you. If you don't mind paying a lot of money for a place, this is the place for you. If your ONLY concern is a clean place, Park Lane Resort is an excellent choice !!!
