We got a themed room (Wolf Den) and it was great. The kids (6 & 3) had their own space and tv. The ladder for the top bunk was a little hard to use, so I wouldn't recommend for a kid younger than 5 or 6. The room had a nice refrigerator and microwave with decent counter space and a deep sink. The housekeeping service is good and they even tucked in my kids' stuffed animals. :)
The water park is great for younger kids, but I don't know that pretense would have as much to do. On a holiday weekend, it is busy. The lines for the big slides were long and sometimes it was hard to even find a tube. We spent most of our time in the wave pool, which is zero entry so great for toddlers.
The other activities are nice, but will generally be added costs. The art projects in the Cub Club are cute, but do them early in your visit so the paint has time to dry. The arcade is decent and you are forced to see it every time you go to the water park, so if you don't want to spend the $ for it, prepare your kids for it. The MagiQuest seemed a little dumb to me, but my oldest loved it. You basically get a good workout running up and down stairs to find things so you can ultimately fight the dragon or something. It was cute, but costs another $35 with a wand purchase.
As others have said, the staff is focused on customer service. The free balloon animals in the lobby are awesome and story time at night is really cute. My kids just loved that stuff. If you go at Christmas time, photos with Santa and Mrs Clause are free as well and it will "snow" in the lobby after story time.
We have stayed here 3 times and we will be back. It is just a great place for a long weekend to relax and have fun with your kids.
