My daughter and her children, ages 4 months and 2 years, and I wanted to stay at a hotel with a Kiddie Pool. I found the RoadKing Inn on the internet and it had exactly what we wanted. However, I was hesitant to stay here after reading a couple of reviews stating that the rooms were full of beetles. I since talked to 2 people that stayed at the RoadKing and they never encountered any beetles so my daughter and I decided to take our chances.
We not only did NOT see any beetles -- we did NOT see a bug of any kind. The room we stayed in was clean and big enough to put the baby's swing, playpen, toys and several water toys for the 2-year-old.
The staff was exceptional - we asked for a small refrigerator to keep the baby bottles in and immediately one was brought to our room. We had access to the microwave during the night for heating the bottles too. Everytime we met a staff member - be it the person who cleans the rooms to the manager - we were always greeted with a smile.
The make-your-own waffles for breakfast were a real treat and there was a variety of coffees available 24 hours a day.
The pool area was wonderful and the kiddie pool is a real bonus when you have such young children.
There is only one negative point that I can make ---We found that the pool floor was VERY slippery when wet and the 2-year-old was finding it very hard to walk on it without falling. However, we bought a pair of plastic sandals that she wore when she went swimming and that solved the problem.
I did notice a couple of other little ones slipping on the floor too and I would strongly suggest that the management might think about resurfacing the floor with one of the "rough" surfaces that you find around other swimming pools.
My daughter and I agreed that we would definitely go back to the RoadKing Inn in the future. We are so glad that we didn't listen to the reviews complaining of beetles. Maybe they just spelled it wrong -- maybe THE BEATLES (remember them!!???) were there!!!!!
