We really enjoyed our stay. The Doubletree has remodeled the atrium of the Willow Valley Inn - and the rooms are beautiful. The bedding and the beds were heavenly. We slept great. There was a children's bonfire where you could roast marshmallows and hot dogs (for $1 each) on Saturday night. I think they mentioned they would do this a couple of times a week during the summer. If I could do it over, I'd probably buy some hershey bars and graham crackers and make smores. Although the kids enjoyed the marshmallows without toppings. On Sunday night, Shrek 3 was playing at the outdoor pool.. We had fun at the bonfire, but had to miss the outdoor movie. They also had some children's craft activities with small craft fees during the day. The water park was small but really nice. The water was warm in both the indoor pool and the water park. They are both next door to each other. The jacuzzi looked nice as well. We stayed on a Saturday night and our room overlooked a wedding reception that must have ended close to 10pm and you could faintly hear the DJ's music. We really enjoyed watching the wedding reception from our room, but it may be disruptive to some families with smaller children, in which case, I might ask for a room that doesn't overlook the banquet hall. Dutch Wonderland was a short easy trip (maybe 15 minutes) away - I enjoyed being off the strip and enjoyed the arrangement with the next door Willow Valley Inn and being able to visit their duck pond, their playground, their outdoor pool and their beautiful grounds. There is a grocery store, pizza place and McDonalds across the street as well. We enjoyed the chocolate chip cookie at check in and the wolf gang coffee maker as well.
