Except for the rude front desk lady who looks like Kate Gosselin and the fact that they charged me $43 for a late check-out time which I didn't ask for (they said they'd refund it), we had a lovely stay.
Oh, and another thing that annoyed us was that our room wasn't ready until 4 p.m. Now, 4 *is* the guaranteed check-in time, and every room was booked the night before meaning they ALL needed to be cleaned, and I understand that getting hotel rooms ready for the next guest is a big job, but come on, 4 p.m. is a little ridiculous. They couldn't have had more cleaning staff on that day? It's not that the maids are too slow, it's that the management should anticipate this on peak dates and know that guests usually arrive well before 4 in the afternoon. We came for the water park and didn't want to go swimming until we were settled into our room.
We made the best of it however, and had lunch at the connected Boston's and enjoyed laser tag and the bar at the water park. Splash Lagoon of course is what we came for, and the crowds die down after 4 anyway.
I would definitely choose this hotel again on a future visit to Splash Lagoon.
Also, they have menus available for several nearby restaurants that deliver to your room. There are some on the shelf, and they have more you can ask for from behind the desk. (I guess they don't put them all out because they're paid to advertise certain ones?) We ordered Chinese which was delicious. I forget the name of it, but if you ask for the Chinese menu they'll give you one. Oh, and if you order food, don't forget make sure you already have or are getting eating utensils! ;)
