The hotel was clean and the the room was clean - except for stains in the carpet (It looked like someone had spilled a Kool Aid type drink on the carpet in the room). The beds were very comfortable, the shower had decent water pressure and the room was quite spacious. There was even a small dorm style fridge in the room (probably where the Kool Aid was before it hit the carpet)
The reason for the stay was the indoor waterpark. Part of the park was closed much of the first day which made the lines long elsewhere. The surfing ride was the favorite ride for my kids but the lines moved very slowly, so the kids spent a lot of time just standing around waiting. The lazy river was not operating for much of the first day and the water was cold in the river once it opened which was a detraction.
The park is small and it truly cannot compete with a regular outdoor waterpark, but then the regular outdoor parks are not open in the middle of winter in upstate NY! My kids still enjoyed themselves despite the drawbacks and other folks in the park were smiling and laughing and seemed to be having a good time. If you want to get away and enjoy an indoor waterpark in the middle of winter this will likely suffice - but just don't expect too much.
