We did not have high expectations. Any service organization that won't bother to respond to patrons questions after they have made a very expensive reservation really doesn't deserve the business.
The Suites: Meh. Very spacious, almost stark, but very clean. What the hotel won't tell you(even if you ask) is that you can't play a DVD, so don't bother. You might be able to find pay per view somewhere IF your TV works. Internet access is sporadic. You can get it in the lobby, but rooms are hit or miss. When you consider people are squeezing 15 people into 2 rooms, the complaints about noise make a lot of sense. I think we were next to them.
The WaterPark - Yes, the water is colder than it should be. Yes, the chlorine smell will just about choke you, but after watching a child vomit into a raft and no one did anything about it, I was pretty happy about all the chlorine. Plenty of rafts in the lazy river, and the conveyor that brings the giant rafts up to the giant slide is also working. For the most part, it was not crowded, most people were respectful and the kids had an absolute blast. The tree house is best geared for ages 3-8 and the big slides to kids 8-12.
Johnny Rockets - This delivers exactly what it promises and the kids love it. Can't understand why someone will pay $500 for a room, then complain about an $8 burger.
All in all, it was a successful visit. There is much that can be improved for the rates Great Escape Lodge is charging, but they seem to not want to hear about what can be improved or what customers would actually like. For the value, we will likely go elsewhere next time.
