This is the second time my wife and I have stayed here. The first time, we had two little kids; this time our kids' ages are 7, 5, and 2. We booked a room that was supposed to sleep 6 adults; two queen beds and a pull-out couch. The room we were given was absolutely PERFECT! It was sooo roomy, which we needed with 3 kids running around. We never really felt like we were bumping into each other. I loved it. Room was clean and up to date.
Our room happened to have a balcony. I'm sure that when The Park Tower Inn was built, the balcony pickets were built to code and spaced appropriately. However, I wouldn't let my two youngest out there. It was really scary; it looked like they could fall right through. Once again, they are probably up to code, but if you have a kid under the age of 7 or 8, I'd opt against the balcony just for peace of mind. Otherwise, it can be pretty nice (see pic). I would spend a little time out here after everyone went to bed.
The continental breakfast was quite the carb-fest, but wasn't bad. I think I grew a little weary of it after day four. It was always plenty stocked and clean.
Pools: We always go on vacation in May before the tourist season hits, so we aren't there when it's terribly crowded. The pools are small and ok for kids. They were clean and chemicals were balanced. Don't go here if you are looking to do laps, but they were fun to relax in. The indoor hot tub had a rather sandy bottom (probably due to the sand filters), but it was ok. Kids loved it. I absolutely love it that the outdoor pool is heated, so folks don't have to wait till the temps are in the 90's to enjoy it. It was great!
In essence, this is the best bang-for-the-buck in terms of hotels. There's no massive water park, no dinner mints on the pillow, etc. However, this is a great place to stay for your average person who needs to get out of town for a few nights.
The staff was helpful and friendly, and there's a really good chance that we will be back! :)
